    The tuition is not worth it. Food tastes good but makes you terribly ill. Unless you are some type of an arts major or premed there are no opportunities for you. Social life is even worse than high school. People are sadistic and act like they are in middle school. Parties are a joke and you are way better off hosting something in a dorm room than going out In every way imaginable the college is closer to your highschool then a major state school. ...Continue reading

    You'll like it if you like a SUPER tiny school and campus. Sorry but if you're not receiving crazy scholarship don't go. Its boring. Same things every weekend. Avid at all costs and if you get stuck here then transfer ASAP ...Continue reading

    GREAT SCHOOL, GREAT ADVISORS I love the atmosphere and my classes. It's true that there is a large Pre-med population and a large performing arts population but every college has specializations. The food is excellent and the parties are alright. I'm always busy all the time but if you like being busy this is the place for you. So glad I chose it! ...Continue reading

    Great place to be if you want to feel important and be respected. It is great if you are into the arts or not! It is a tad closed off BUT if you like that nice atmosphere where you know you are safe it is goo! Prof. are super nice and helpful. The wifi is spotty in the freshman dorms.

    Even though I commute, I spend a lot of time on campus. I loved the variety of classes I took, yet everything was interconnected. I loved the small, close-knit community of faculty, students, and staff. All students are nice and seem extremely happy. In the end, you can learn just as much if not more here as you can at an Ivy. ...Continue reading

    love it. We are known for being good in certain areas (theater, business, sciences) but other than that we are a small school in the north east. Professors really care about their students. There is also a great aspect of community on campus. The people here are so nice and will always hold a door open for you.

    Muhlenberg has the most beautiful campus I've ever seen. I've not had a single negative experience with anything. They only hire professors who are passionate about teaching and the liberal arts discussion based classes are incredible.

    Terrible! Can be very cliquey and claustrophobic. The mental health services are a joke. The social life is kinda what you make of it, but if you don't have connections you won't go out a lot.

    Great teachers and classes, but the institution itself is terrible. The school advertises really well.

That being said I love many of the opportunities I've had here. I just wish things had been better. ...Continue reading

    Devoid of boys. I've had to jump through many hoops to get things approved for me individually.

    Beautiful school. I knew at Muhlenberg I would be getting a personalized, well-rounded education, and just the social atmosphere I needed! I don't regret anything about my decision! Muhlenberg is in it's own bubble which is fantastic for some people. The internet is slow, the food is average, but the people there are amazing! It's mostly Jewish but there is a chapel on campus.

    I'm a sophomore right now, and I am just loving everything about Muhlenberg! Curiosity is encouraged.

    EXCELLENT pre-med program. I graduated Muhlenberg in 2010 and got accepted to my top-choice med school right away.
