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.
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.
