    Campus Visits

    The best way to get to know Allegheny — and for us to get to know you — is by spending time on campus.


    In compliance with health department and government recommendations, the Office of Admissions has cancelled all on campus events. We will be reaching out with more information in the coming weeks to provide ways in which you can explore Allegheny and still connect with our community as you complete your college search.

    Allegheny is now hosting a variety of online events for prospective students and their families. Learn more here.

    You can also check out our virtual tour, highlights of Meadville, and videos from our recent student social media takeover.

    We offer individual visits on weekdays and select Saturdays throughout the summer. If you do not see desired times on the day that you wish to visit, please call the Office of Admission to see if we may be able to accommodate you. When possible, we ask that you register at least one week in advance to ensure that we can meet all your requests. 

    Note: In an effort to promote the health and well being of our entire community, we ask students, faculty, staff, and visitors to be respectful and not travel to campus if they are ill or have traveled to any CDC-restricted area and monitor State Department travel advisories

    Campus Tours
    These customized walking tours of campus, led by a current Allegheny College student, last approximately one hour. We recommend that you sign up for a counselor session along with your campus tour.

    Counselor Sessions
    Counselor sessions serve as an informal, informative conversation with an admissions staff member. The time is used to discuss the opportunities at Allegheny and the admission process. Prospective students should come prepared to discuss their interest in Allegheny and their questions. These sessions typically last about 45 minutes, with an opportunity for family members to join at the end and ask questions. 

    Saturday Visits
    Saturday information sessions are available throughout the year. Information sessions begin at 10am. You may register for a campus tour before or after the information session. 

    Go Gator Admitted Student Celebrations (invitation only)
    Admitted Student Celebrations have been cancelled for the Spring 2020 semester. 

    Open Houses
    Open Houses have been cancelled for the Spring 2020 semester. Summer Open Houses will be determined in the coming weeks.
    Senior Overnights
    Overnight visits are a great way for high school seniors to get a detailed view of Allegheny. A classroom experience is a vital component of the overnight visit, so in order to ensure that you may attend a class, we offer visits Monday–Thursday. More information can be found on our Senior Overnights page.

    Special Requests
    If there is something specific that you are hoping to learn during your visit to Allegheny, please let us know. We make every effort to accommodate special requests. Please note that for Saturday visits and during the summer months, some departments may not be available during your visit.

    Group Visits
    Group visit requests are temporarily suspended for the Spring 2020 semester.
