Muhlenberg College Reviews
Muhlenberg is a place where students and faculty truly care about your success and well-being. The school is full of kind and passionate people with a variety of interests. The food is absolutely stellar and easily the best I've had at a college. Academically, it is a very collaborative environment where students do not compete but instead encourage each other. The student body is active and there is a very unique sense of community here. Financial and merit aid is usually very generous, especially if you show Admissions how much you genuinely want to be there. The only downside is that the party scene is lacking and the surrounding area does not have a ton to do. There is a downtown about ten minutes away with restaurants, cafes, etc and a coffeehouse behind campus. Most of the social life here is based around the arts/performances. There is a large LGBTQ+ community which creates a very accepting environment that allows me to comfortably express myself as a gay student. Love it!
I love Muhlenberg the community is something indescribable. Although students are a bit disrespectful in communal spaces, like bathrooms, but not everything and everyone can be great! The food is good the only other downside is not enough lights around outside when walking back from the dining hall or night classes. At least not enough to feel safe in the dark at night by yourself.
Muhlenberg College is a welcoming college with a beautiful campus and many opportunities to learn and grow. Some highlights for me so far have been the one-on-one relationships you can establish with professors, leadership opportunities, and let's not forgot the amazing food! The one area that is lacking is there is not enough diversity on campus.
