Guys & Girls: There are a lot of crazies. Beautiful and Handsome crazies, but crazies nonetheless.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Theres a great mix of people.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Students are smart and artsy types

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I live really close to Muhlenberg but most of the kids are from New Jersey and Long Island so we are very different. The kids are kind of snobby and into partying. Most people are into theatre and a lot of the guys are "artsy", which makes it even harder to find a nice guy to go out with.

Guys & Girls: Muhlenberg had more girls than guys and is primarily Jewish. There's not a ton of variety, and with a very religious school, not a ton of fun.

Muhlenberg’s campus has many beautiful qualities. Fortunately, its student body happens to be one of them. There are as many students who believe they need to freshen up in the morning as there are students who can simply roll out of bed looking gorgeous. Also, the gender ratio is only 60 percent girls and 40 percent guys, which is pretty balanced, so there are plenty of dating and hookup opportunities for both sexes. Sometimes, the small student body gives the impression that the dating pool is really small or that all of the “good ones” are taken. But students can be pleasantly surprised when they find a new group of people or go to a house party they have never been to before. Also, since Muhlenberg’s campus is so small, it is very easy to get to know that cutie you have been eyeing for a while.

The one downside to a small campus is that gossip gets around pretty quickly, so chances are that by Monday almost everyone will know about that random hookup from the weekend. Yet, the gossip circle does not stop students from letting loose at parties. Essentially, there is still a balanced amount of students looking for a hookup as there is a group looking for a relationship, and Muhlenberg’s size is definitely a plus for the school’s committed couples. The walk from one end of campus to the other is pretty short, and the two of you are bound to bump into each other at least once a day while walking to classes.

Social Scene
When walking down Academic Row, it is not uncommon to see students going out of their way to say hello or to strike up a conversation. You might find some cliques when in Seegers Union or at a party, but even most cliques make a point of being friendly. Overall, it's pretty easy to meet all sorts of people on campus.
Hookups or Relationships?
There is a pretty decent mix of people who want a relationship and those who do not. However, because of Muhlenberg's small student body, it is hard to avoid bumping into that random hookup from Saturday night. In fact, you may end up bumping into that same person multiple times in one day, nevermind a week. The bottom line is Muhlenberg students get to know each other very quickly, so it is not uncommon to find the couple who were "just hooking up" toying with the idea of a committed relationship.
Dress Code
Although there is some variety, most students usually go for the preppy look. The students who decide to take an artistic license with their dressing, however, do not necessarily get strange looks. They may stand out, but not uncomfortably so. And, of course, there are many students who stroll on over to class in just their sweats and T-shirt (students certainly buy plenty of each at the bookstore).
