4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes and professors are great. The main reason i chose Muhlenberg was because of the quality of the education i knew i was going to receive. I wasn't just a number, yet sometimes i did get lost in the shuffle of class. Most of the professors breeze through the material, so quickly that at some points i wasn't even able to nail down the concept generally to be able to ask a question before they moved onto the next topic. I was at the end of the acceptance period, and i believe that the main reason i was accepted was due to me being a successful athlete in high school. So successful that i was to be on the team at Muhlenberg. Had it not been for my above average talent on the basketball court, i do not genuinely believe that i would be attending Muhlenberg, for i would not have been accepted during the application process.

Health & Safety: I lived in the dorm that campus safety was housed, and the only time i ever really saw them was when they had to deal with someone who had consumed too much alcohol, or had to unlock someones door. There were no real security measures that were special or significant. The only one that i had been offered was a "no contact order". I feel relatively safe on campus, but there were some points throughout the year that i received emails of flashers, and that there had been homeless people walking throughout the dorm.

Campus Housing: The dorm that you receive freshman year is purely based on the time your deposit drops into the registrars mailbox. Even though it seems right for those that had early acceptance, it is slightly unfair due to the amenities and differences in the buildings. Only Walz has air conditioning and larger rooms, while Brown has the largest rooms, and Prosser is an absolute horror to live in. It is hot all the time and the rooms are barely large enough for one person. Socially, you are on your own unless you make friends with people on your floor, which is hard to do because the building is so oddly shaped. I barely ever saw someone from the other side of the hall, unless they were going to the bathroom or out and about campus.

Greek Life: the fraternities on campus have a lot of parties that sometimes get them into trouble, many of them have been on probation and one of them was recently shutdown. The sororities don't have parties so i don't really know what they are about, but i do plan on rushing in the fall, and joining one of them. Greek life is accepted throughout all social scenes, as most of the members are involved in the theater or on a n athletic team. There are some houses for the more popular, and the service fraternities and sororities live in the dorms.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being an athlete, we are given a strength and conditioning coach that pushes us past our limits, and we are asked even more so from our coaches. The school doesn't really show a lot of support for any other sport besides football, and even then it isn't a lot. Less can be said for basketball and tennis. Overall there isn't a lot of support for the athletic teams. There is a fairly large divide between the students of the arts and the athletic teams. They just don't support each other which causes tension throughout the school. My team was fairly successful during out winter season, but only when we made it to the later part of the season did students show up to games to support us. The facilities are some of the best i've seen at a division 3 level school and i am proud to train every time i step into the weight room or field house, knowing that i will be a better athlete than when i entered the room. I only said athlete, not person, due to the coaching staff. There is some tension between the players and the coaches, so we aren't all always on the same page. There have been times i've heard from other athletes that they don't like how they are being treated by their coaches. Now many of the faculty the run the field house and physical education department are coaches, so we see them frequently on campus.

Overall Experience: My school isn't very diverse, and people there aren't very welcoming, unless you have a group of friends that you meet right off the bat. Cliques are common and people (mostly women) are quite petty, so there is a lot of unwanted drama and attention that occurs on the weekends. If you aren't an athlete, you have to work harder, due to favoritism by the administration. There aren't many events held by the college that the majority of the student population participates in, so it is hard for students to meet people outside their friend groups. Sure the campus is welcoming and pretty in itself, but the student body is not one i can say im proud to be a part of. All that being said, i am an athlete and i do love my school, but i do wish Muhlenberg had more of a state school feeling. Not this feeling of being trapped inside a bubble.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally I am not a fan of Greek life. I think that they do beneficial things at times, but they mostly just throw good parties.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: In my two semesters at Muhlenberg, the only sporting event I attended was one varsity men's soccer game. I think that there should be more support of the athletics.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm so glad I chose to attend Muhlenberg College. I thought I would hate being only 10 minutes away from where I grew up; however, I've had so many new and wonderful experiences this past year. Everyone is super nice and special in their own way. No one is afraid to be who they are. I would recommend my school to anyone.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The student body is notorious for its overwhelming praise for Muhlenberg. Despite whatever complaints you may hear about the housing lottery or parking, the majority of students graduates with nothing short of adoration for their 'Berg experience. The professors make classes rewarding and challenging, and the overall community is supportive; these two things together help students find their ideal home-away-from-home. There are some students who dislike the school's small size, saying that with a limited party scene, the weekends become uneventful. Others say they believe the community is warm, close-knit, and active because of the small size. Students are as dedicated to their clubs as they are to friends and schoolwork, so there is always some student-run activity on campus. If you look in the right places, there is always something to do.

The majority of the student body does love Muhlenberg, but that does not mean the school is for everyone. Muhlenberg is a small campus and is not exactly in the most metropolitan location. Just remember that an eventful world exists outside of Muhlenberg—so explore it! On the flip side, do not forget that the same professors who welcome friendly conversation also expect students to engage whole-heartedly in challenging assignments. There will not always be time to come to the beck and call of every party and distraction. Thankfully, many of the students who come to Muhlenberg expect to be challenged. So, even when you feel drowned with work, your friends and peers will be trudging along with you.
