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!

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.
