What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved attending Muhlenberg College because of the small class size (you won't find a course with over 40 students) and the availability of the professors. Muhlenberg has a challenging curriculum and encourages students to take many classes outside their major which ends up being really important in developing many skills. Most of the professors are overly supportive and they really do want you to succeed. The one problem I have with the school is that many people were stuck inside what students have called the "Muhlen-bubble," meaning, with the nice campus and privileges we have there, it is easy to become oblivious to the hardships that lie outside the campus. For this reason, many clubs and organizations are focused on getting students out into the city of Allentown for community service.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I regard Muhlenberg College very highly. I think the strengths of the institution far out way any weaknesses. It has one of the top 10 Theater programs in the country while maintaining its status as a rigorous liberal arts college with great athletics and one of the best football teams in its respective division. I chose my college because I wanted a place that I would be able to grow and develop my skills as a performer, but not limit myself to an education that was isolated in theater and detached from the rest of the world. I didn't want to be at a place that isolated the arts from the rest of the world; I wanted to pursue what I loved and also be surrounded by people who were different from me. The fact that Muhlenberg is a liberal arts college with all types of majors and programs as well as an incredible theater program allows me to pursue an education that challenges my thinking and expands my knowledge while simultaneously getting exceptional theater training. The fact that the theater program was not audition based made the playing field feel level for all students, so the opportunities I have earned while being their feel like they come completely from me. With so many student lead creative initiatives, like a cappella groups, theater collectives, comedy groups and more, The artistic opportunities at this school have allowed me not only play the role of an actor, but play the role of the creator. By auditioning for shows, as a freshman, I have earned roles in the highest level productions put on my the college, which has affirmed my passions in theater and my love and fit for the institution. The culture of Muhlenberg is holds a strong community emphasis, and because the school is only around 2400 students, the relationship that the students have with the school is intimate and endearing. My favorite thing about Muhlenberg is the community engagement and support of both the arts and athletics, at basketball games, you see theater majors in the stands cheering for their friends. Fraternity brothers and athletes that know nothing about Theater will come to the productions to support their friends. The food is also FANTASTIC; it is in the top 20 for the state of Pennsylvania and top 50 in the nation. We also have a large Jewish presence on campus, which the dining services are extremely accommodating for, a large portion of the dining hall is devoted to 100% kosher foods, the school also has a Jewish center and is across the street from a synagogue. The school started as Lutheran so we have a chapel on campus as well for christian students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Muhlenberg is a college for students who wish to get involved! There are hundreds (literally hundreds) of student-run organizations, from a 400+ student theatre organization, to niche organizations of 10-15 students. Many students are also double-majors, studying two (or more!) subjects, leading to a versatile student population and fluid academic and social groups.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Muhlenberg is a largely liberal environment in every sense of the word. While more than half of the student body is dedicated to creating fantastic and creative works of art (whether that be in the form of theatre performances, art exhibits, or dance productions), we also politically reflect that "echo-chamber"stereotype that comes from an almost entirely politically liberal school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly hated my time at Muhlenberg College. For one thing, Allentown is a terrible college town. One side of the campus is surrounded by suburbs and the other half is surrounded by a graveyard and then a low-income urban-esque setting. There is maybe one or two clubs you can take a shuttle to but other than that the most fun thing to do is hit up the nearby wegmans. The campus itself is incredibly small too, and there is only one building for the students to hang out in, so you can never get away from anyone. Parties are never that fun and to go to a good one you really have to know people. Academics are good and teachers are nice but it's not super challenging. The cafeteria is also really bad with food allergies and to get food you can eat you have to go through an incredibly long process. Additionally, disabilities and the mental health services are CRAZY overworked and understaffed. I had a lot of problems and was never given the help I needed. You'll love it if you're looking for a super super small arts school, with a very lowkey party scene and a cliquey, not very diverse student body. I'm absolutely transferring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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+.

Love it here! Best decision I made yet in my short life. Far enough away from home yet close to go home on weekends if necessary. Great small private school, beautiful campus. My FYS class was so much better than I anticipated. The food is fabulous-the freshman 15 is REAL!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

Literally amazing. I have attended a few other schools for differing reasons, but nothing even comes close to here. Theatre is amazing and there is always some on campus activity happening. I would absolutely recommend Muhlenberg to anyone looking
