Martin Luther College Reviews

I have completed my freshman year at Martin Luther College, and it exceeded my expectations. Being on a relatively small campus allows students to get to know each other easily and create strong friendships. I have enjoyed getting to know my classmates and see them shine in their extracurricular activities. The professors genuinely make time for each student and do what they can to make sure that students fully understand the coursework. The classes are challenging and have fed my desire to become a teacher. The best part of MLC is the bond you create with everyone there through your shared faith. The love for Christ is evident the second you walk on campus and engage in conversation with someone. From the professors, the students, and the other staff everyone is there to build you up and help you become the best pastor or teacher you can be.

The best part about Martin Luther College is all the personable professors. Professors at MLC genuinely care about your education. They take the time to get to know you and your strengths and weaknesses. Advisors also take the time to go over how you fit so far into your major. Professors will reach out to you via email, phone, or in person to see how you are doing if you miss class. If you need to take the time to get extra help, professors are more than ready to help you out with whatever you need. They will meet in their office or in the library, and most will even go beyond their office hours to help you. All professors are knowledgeable of the Bible and God's Word. This is important since we are getting educated to be Christian leaders and teachers. The campus is small and the student population is low, so you really get that one on one attention from a professor that every student desires. I recommend this college to anyone seeking a career in Christian Education and Ministry.
I'm a junior at Martin Luther College this year. If you're looking to find a Christian spouse, this is the place to be. There's the constant joke that MLC actually means 'Making Lutheran Couples'. We are a Lutheran college with three majors- education, staff ministry, or pastoral track. The professors here are terrific, and I believe the student-teacher ratio is quite low. Campus life is very personal- since we only have about 750 students, everyone knows everyone, and most have a relative that goes here, since its the WELS college. I really love my time here, and have made lifelong relationships. MLC is very Christ-centered and worth a look at. New Ulm, MN, where we are, is a town of about 14,000 people. But, if you need bigger cities, there is Mankato, a bigger town, just a half hour drive away, and the twin cities are only an hour and a half away.
