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.

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.
