What I appreciated the most about Muhlenberg, beyond the sense of community and delicious dining hall food, was the ability to grow regardless of what I chose to do. There were a tremendous number of opportunities that I took advantage of, from being a double major to being an RA to working as a peer tutor while also stage managing. It let me explore new areas in academia and make professional connections that I have sustained since graduating. There are, of course, things that could always be changed, specifically relating to the bureaucracy of the school and how its investments are managed, but my experience was overwhelmingly positive.

Muhlenberg was my first choice and I am so happy with the decision I made! There is always something fun and exciting to do on campus! There are so many clubs and activities to get involved in. And it's fun to watch the sports games and cheer for your fellow mules. Majority of the people I've met are friendly, kind, and passionate about what they are studying. I'm personally studying theatre, psychology, and music. All of these departments have great faculty and solid reputations. And I loved my classes! I always feel safe on campus, no matter what time it is. The food is really great, and if you have allergies, the chefs are awesome at accommodating. And the campus itself is just beautiful! The dorms are nice; I lived in Brown my freshman year and loved it. My first year was one of the best years of my life, and I can't wait for what the next years will bring! GO MULES!!!
It is a great school, everything is top notch.
The buildings the students and teachers are all great. Come for a visit you'll love it, I've loved my time here. Everyone is supportive and tries to build each other up. Go mules!
