If there is one thing I should say about Muhlenberg, it is NOT the "perfect" school. Especially as a both a student of color and an LGBT student, there are a lot of things I wish I could change about the school. HOWEVER, I absolutely LOVE it here. Muhlenberg is probably one of THE BEST, if not the best, schools for people who want to gain development as both an artist and an intellectual. There are soooo many amazing classes you can take from all departments; Muhlenberg really caters to those who want to be the jacks of all trades. Here, you can be a business major and still develop yourself as an actor or dancer and gain the training you need to enter both the performance and business world.
It's a great school. There is no town nearby so most of the activities revolve around the campus. If you need necessities and have a car (which is easy to keep off campus) you can easily get to a drug store or local Target. I am very happy here and really like all the people I have met. The professors are excellent and always willing to help.
It took me a little while to warm-up to Muhlenberg, but my experience has been overall positive. If you're looking for small liberal arts, this is it. Professors go the extra mile to help you out (whether in class or looking for internships/jobs/research) if you ask and class sizes are excellent. I've never had a class over 30 people (however, if you plan to take intro biology or chem you'll experience the largest classes at berg which are around 100. Still not bad). Social life is probably the hardest thing to latch on to here if you don't find your place fairly soon, but there are so many clubs and fun events to find friends at. And the food is A+.
The community at Muhlenberg has cultivated a friendly environment where both staff and students are welcome and appreciated. The dining hall and other food options are excellent and the staff is always open to student input. While the housing options could be better, the school is going through a development process that will strive to upgrade current housing options and provide new ones as well. If you are looking for a school with a small campus, a tight-knit community, access to a city, and small class sizes, then Muhlenberg is the school for you!

Visit as many times as you can! Go on the college-sponsored tours, but also see if you can go on tours from students that haven't been hired as tour guides; they will tend to be more honest and open. Do overnights as well: stay in the dorm you will most likely be living in as a first year if you plan on attending a college far from home. Once enrolled, attend the college activity fairs to see all the different clubs the campus has to offer. Do what interests YOU! Be yourself.
My classmates were very caring and formed very close bonds with one another.
Muhlenberg was the perfect choice for me - small classes, individualized attention, and not too shabby to look at either. I've found that I can really be the person I want to be, do the things I want to do, excel both in and out of the classroom, and have memories and friendships that will go beyond my four years at Muhlenberg College!
very conservative-minded people, anyone who is looking for a large party school, someone who is not academically oriented
the professors are very friendly and helpful always presenting new ideas and opportunities.
Caring, friendly, receptive, hard-working, beautiful campus, sometimes too stuck in it's own little "bubble" not as repsoncive to the "outside world" as it should be
At times, it can feel as if you are living in a bubble because of the small size of the college. Don't let that hold you back. Explore the area and see what's around.
It is not as culturally diverse as I would like it to be, especially in terms of professors.
A person who relatively enjoys or respects the arts and a person who likes smaller school. We're very accepting of everyone.
The same people tend to get cast into school productions.
The theatre department, psychology, and the sciences.
This is a small, Lutheran based school that has enough students to give you your taste of college life, but is safe enough for freshman to begin to be on their own. The college is lovely and filled with history. Anyone can find what they need here at Muhlenberg College. It has a diverse curriculum that is strong in the sciences, art, economics and art!
Professors absolutely know your name. Classes are tiny; my intro to psych was a lecture class and it probably had around 35 kids. Class participation counts towards your grade, as does attendance, which definitely motivates you to go to class.
Students have intellectual conversations outside of class if they want to, but its also easy to avoid if you want.
By senior year so many people have boyfriends. There are over 100 clubs, as well as four sororities, four fraternities and a few other Greek organizations. On Saturdays if you don't want to drink sometimes there are small performances in our student union. I met my closest friends through Greek life.
People party however much they want. There are some people who wind up drinking 5 times a week and go out, and some who don't.
I absolutely love Muhlenberg. It is such a warm place. For me, the size is just right.
Allentown itself isn't really utilized by students except to go to Panera or get Asian food; other than that people really tend to stay on campus.
School pride for football is minimal, but some people go to soccer and basketball games and they can be a lot of fun.
After having spent my first year here at 'Berg, I can honestly tell you that this stereotype does not hold true. Coming from the East Village in New York City, I had friends of all nationalities, races, and religions. When I came here to campus last fall, I was taken aback by how many places on campus in which diversity was present, after having read all these blogs. From the Multicultural Center, to clubs like Comunidad Latina and Gay-Straight Alliance(GSA), you can definitely find diversity on campus. One of my favorite parts of Freshman Orientation weekend was seeing a production performed by students through the Sedehi Diversity Project. This project, created by a Muhlenberg Alum who graduated in 2008, deals with questions like "What is diversity?" and "How diverse is our campus?" Various students on 'Berg's campus are asked questions like these, and their responses are all put together into this piece. I absolutely loved seeing the piece and hearing about students' honest responses to diversity here on campus. The pieces highlighted the fact that diversity spans not only the racial spectrum, but also the religious, ethnic, and sexual orientation spectrums, which are all represented on Muhlenberg's campus.
One of the most common stereotypes is that everyone is from New Jersey and/or Jewish and/or rich.
There are different groups; the Greeks, the athletes, the theater kids, and then kind of in a sense everyone else. But everyone finds their niche.
