I absolutely LOVE Muskingum University. The people and community are absolutely amazing and such a close group of people, and they are all so accepting of each other. The professors are great at interacting with students and and providing a rigorous curriculum. There are endless opportunities to get involved too such as Greek life, multi-cultural life, music and the arts, sports, everything under the sun! The residence halls could use some updating, but that does not take away from the absolute beauty of the rolling hills and classic brick featured all over campus. Go Muskies!

I love Muskingum University!!!! The University itself might be small, but it is like a family to me. I am so sad that I have graduated from this college. I wish I can still stay there for ten more years, honestly. The University has a great psychology department; all the professors are super kind and helpful. Additionally, they are always trying to challenge students and give students' outside the lecture opportunities. Matter fact, the student residence life staff are super friendly and helpful as well. Overall, I had a great experience at Muskingum University. It has given a great college experience.
I love Muskingum. The rooms are small- but it is a dorm in college. Our president is amazing. The professors, however are not the best. One argued with me multiple times about what my belifs are on a certain topic in a diversity class. The Greek life on campus is amazing. The sorority’s and ferternitys are amazing. Stacy Allen has a great program going and I couldn’t have picked a better college. A student (junior) passes away a few days before Christmas, and our community came together and donated money to his family, including our president who donated her personal money to his account. The people at Muskingum is quite honestly amazing! I love it. I am so proud and blessed to be a Muskie. 10/10 would recommend.
