Kayla

Muskingum is an average school, there are opportunities to be had if you make the most of your four to six years here.

Macy

Muskingum University is a place where the faculty are dedicated to your success as a student and beyond. The small class sizes allow for a personal interaction with your professors. I am on a first name basis with a few of mine. Everyone on campus is friendly because it is such a small school that everyone knows each other. It feels like one huge Magenta family.

Jacob

I love it here. Its a beautiful campus. Everyone here is so friendly. The staff, students, and coaches are very supportive and take the time to get to know you. The athletics here have been outstanding and the community support is top notch. The classroom size is fairly small which is more inclusive for learning. I cant say enough about the food. There is always an alternative selection if the meal isn't appetizing enough for you. This place has a lot to offer

ZoeyT

I love Muskingum University with all of my heart, I have found my home here. I was skeptical because it is so close to home and my mom was an alum, but I couldn't picture myself anywhere else. I am a first year student and I already feel like such a leader. There are endless opportunities I never imagined that I would have and I have created some of the most amazing connections with my professors and peers. The housing could use some updating, but that will happen soon enough with time, but I am extremely pleased with my decision to go to Muskingum University.
