If you are looking for a school with small classes and professors who give students individualized attention, you are in luck—Muhlenberg's enthusiastic and friendly faculty is considered one of the College's hallmarks. Sure, students will encounter the occasional exception, but, for the most part, professors are always eager to help and to get to know their students. On the first day of class, many professors will hand out a syllabus that includes their office hours and phone number. And, since many live close to campus, some professors may invite your class to their house for study parties or other miscellaneous events. Also, if a student shows special interest or talent in a subject, professors take the initiative to offer research or internship opportunities, which allow students to hone in on their interests. Keeping this in mind, professors will notice and care if you skip or fall asleep in class. Professors want their students to succeed, and they don't like to see any of their students fall behind.
Muhlenberg offers a wide variety of interesting courses. But the fact that the school is most well known for its pre-med, theater, and dance programs is a testament to Muhlenberg's academic diversity. The purpose of a liberal arts education is to teach students how to think about and appreciate various subjects. Many students would agree that Muhlenberg accomplishes this task.
