What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
Muhlenberg College is known as the Caring College, and rightly so - the students that attend college here are some of the kindest and genuinely nice people you'll meet. Muhlenberg takes academics seriously, and also focuses on engaging with the surrounding Allentown community.
GO MULES!
It is academically rigorous and perfect for Theatre and Biology majors. It has a good variety of majors but definitely specializes in the aforementioned. Competition in the theatre and everyone is very driven in their lives.
