My experience at Muskingum University so far has been amazing. I have met and interacted with so many new, great people. The staff and faculty are all very helpful in my process to further my education.
One thing that i love about attending school at Muskingum University is that there are unlimited things you can do as a student there and it's a great social environment. As high school student who never really got involved, Muskingum university has helped me become more joining and interactive with others and events at school. There are many different clubs, community service opportunities, sporting events and other activities to attend to on campus. I love my school and there is not much that I would change about it but if I had to choose something, it would involve the dinning hall, not the employees because they are amazing and so helpful but the food options could use a change.

I had a pretty good experience there. The professors there are mostly very nice and approachable, and you can always get some help from people around you. Love Muskingum!
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!
