I love how everyone feels like a family. We all relatively worship under the same faith, which is a big unifying factor to this family feeling. Yes, every school has it's typical drama, but with our Christian mentality we can conquer it together rather than ignoring it.
The one thing I would change (if I could) would be to move MLC off the hill. Even better would be to move it to a warmer place!

Martin Luther College is truly a home away from home. While there are flaws, as at all schools, I was immediately impressed by the friendly atmosphere, the dedication to education and ministry, and the amazing opportunities offered there. An extensive team of educators and staff work side by side with the students to offer the best possible experience while at school and ensure a bright, steadfast future as pastors, teachers, and staff ministers.
The overall experience was amazing! This is a college that truly cares about the students and their futures.
