Muhlenberg College Reviews
The classes and academic resources are great. The food is amazing. The facilities are fantastic (especially Seegers and Life Sports Center). However, there is little diversity here and the social aspect is very poor. At Muhlenberg there are really two groups: athletics and theater (there is also Greek like but it is not as prominent). The Greek life here is terrible, the athletics are cliuey and don’t branch out outside their teams or to “non-athletes” and treat you as if you are lesser for not being on a team. Many people here are stuck up. The campus is largely geared towards theater people. Those are the two main social groups and if you do not fall into ether category, then this is not the place for you. You will have no social life and the school will not care about you.
Muhlenberg carries an atmosphere of acceptance and togetherness. It’s very hard to come here and not find a place where you belong. Our academics are challenging with a faculty that pushes students for greatness. While it’s no walk in the park, you can be certain you’re receiving the best education possible. Oh, and let’s talk about the food! 5 Star food and staff.
Everyone is very nice and supportive, the professors are very interested in the students and their personal lives. Many different activities to do on campus or off campus. The people here are very friendly and there are always dogs on campus. The campus is a perfect size if you are looking for a small campus. Academics are challenging but worth it!
