I love the college that I ended up choosing. The faculty here are so caring and involved with the students. They really want all students at Muskingum to succeed. The students at Muskingum are also really close to one another. One of my favorite things about Muskingum is the Muskie "hello." Everyone here is so friendly and caring. My only concerns are the campus food and housing. They are not the worst thing in the world, but it could definitely be improved. But despite that, I couldn't imagine attending college anywhere else.
What I like about Muskingum is that the professors try to work with the students. If a student is struggling in a class, the professor offers office hours for them to come in and discuss their problems. I also like the openness of the campus. for instance, I can walk anywhere and always see someone I know. I concluded that by the end of the day, the "Freshmen Fifteen" was nonexistent. Something I would change about Muskingum would be the lack of enough handicap accommodations. I have a few classmates in my classes who are handicap. They have trouble getting to class sometimes of the weather. I feel that the school needs to make more accommodations for them. For instance, in one of the dorms, the ground floor does not have an automatic door. My friend lives on that floor and she has trouble getting to her room because the door does not open automatically. I'm not saying that Muskingum needs to be a more friendly handicap accessible campus, but they need to make changes and additions.
Great school and campus! Fun programs and clubs, great educational experience overall! Cost was higher than others.
