The dorms are a decent size for two beds and a futon. The bathrooms are large, but the showers are not consistently warm. They are either "burning-your-skin" hot or cold, but sometimes you can get lucky. There are tons of places to study and do homework alone or in groups all across campus. The campus is a great size; you can easily walk to all buildings on the campus from your dorm room, and there are enough people enrolled that you don't feel like you know everybody. The social atmosphere is always friendly from both students and professors. Martin Luther College's chapel is beyond amazing and includes morning and evening services/devotions every week day which is a huge benefit. Love the place!

Jump! Jump! Jump! Martin Luther College is not at all known for their ability to play sports. However, we as students don't seem to mind. We view sports as a way to bond with fellow classmates and cheer on our friends on the court. Instead of cheerleaders, a group of seniors write hilarious skits to put on in front of the crowds during time-outs that really encourage crowd involvement. Martin Luther College also has a fantastic work out center that is open from 7 AM to midnight every day. The staff really emphasizes the importance of exercise as a part of daily life as well.

It's Good for the Most Part! MLC is truly a very unique college. There are few kids (around 800) and students are preparing solely for a career in the public ministry. Overall, the education is of high-quality and the relationship between students and professors is very strong. I decided to study Spanish in college and the Spanish program here is very good!
