Academics

Students who attend Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania are welcomed into a “close-knit” community and are privy to “a well-rounded liberal arts education.” And while the academics are certainly “rigorous,” undergraduates here love the fact it’s “[not] a cutthroat atmosphere.” Importantly, students have their pick of many terrific disciplines, from the “amazing theater department” to the “extremely strong” education and science programs. Undergrads are also happy to champion their “dedicated” professors who understand how to create and foster “engaging courses.” They also value the fact that Muhlenberg instructors “really take the time to get to know you and answer your questions.” As one satisfied student interjects, “My professors so far have all been amazing and truly want me to succeed.” Finally, as an international studies and Spanish double major sums up, “Muhlenberg is a place where someone can pursue theater AND chemistry, play a varsity sport AND lead a volunteer organization, work individually with a professor AND befriend a dining services worker.”

Student Body

Strolling around the Muhlenberg campus, you’ll probably pass by a number of students who are “white, upper-middle class [and] from New Jersey.” Thankfully, though that might seem to define the typical undergrad here, there’s much more to these students. Indeed, many individuals assert that their peers are extremely “hardworking” and “friendly.” A French and education double-major explains, “Most people are involved with many different aspects of campus life, and these aspects tend not to be ‘cliquey’ because of the crossover. For example, there are many football players who are members of a cappella groups or who take dance.” Importantly, we’re also told that “being nice is kind of important” at Muhlenberg. An English major qualifies, “If someone doesn’t hold the door open for the person behind them, they’re basically made to wear a scarlet letter and deemed a pariah.” And, finally, a biology major sums up his peers by stating, “There is a place for everyone on campus. We have a huge theater program, yet almost 30 percent of our school participates in athletics, so you can see there are all extremes and everything in between.”

Campus Life

It’s quite easy to lead a full and fulfilling life at Muhlenberg. To begin with, the “school offers tons of free activities over the weekends, from movie showings to Stuff-A-Plush.” Undergrads here also love to take advantage of the college’s strong performing arts scene. Indeed, “a cappella groups are very popular at Muhlenberg.” Additionally, given “the large theater department,” it’s virtually guaranteed that “there’s always a show in production.” Sports are equally popular and we’re told that “football and basketball games have good attendance records.” While there’s a modest amount of drinking, the college doesn’t have a crazy party scene. As a biology major shares, “There’s a few bars and clubs in the area that offer college nights on Thursdays which is fun. Every now and then the fraternities will host parties. A lot of people frequent the sports houses’ parties on the weekends. But a lot of people also just chill and watch a movie.” From time to time, the school hosts theme parties “like flapper-era zombies or a speakeasy (with a live jazz band!)” as well. Lastly, undergrads enjoy Allentown’s public parks which provide “great areas to hike, explore, bird-watch, read or take a jog.” And they periodically capitalize on Muhlenberg’s relatively close proximity to both Philadelphia and New York.

Sustainability

Students can help save the environment both inside and outside the classroom at Muhlenberg, thanks in large part to the work of the college’s Office of Campus Sustainability. Bringing together student, faculty, and staff, the office’s goal is to facilitate the link between academic and facilities-based sustainability efforts, support campus environmental groups, and create internship opportunities, often through reaching out for external funding. Students looking to pursue a career in an environmental or other sustainability-based field can do so through its unique academic program in Sustainability Studies. In this program, students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds come together to explore innovative ways to solve environmental problems. Included in the program are numerous experiential opportunities either locally, or in programs sites in Bangladesh, China, and Costa Rica. Beyond the classroom, students can choose to live in the Sustainability House, help run the community garden, participate in Student Government to push for campus-wide green initiatives, and join the Environmental Action Team (EnAct). There are yearly dorm competitions targeted at reducing electrical consumption, as well as Earth Day celebrations. A major part of the Muhlenberg College Strategic Plan is the ongoing process of replacing desktop computers with at least 85 percent EPEAT Gold-rated hardware—referring to a global environmental ratings system that ranks “green” computers—as well as replacing steam-to-water converters with a gas-fired heating system, and conducting detailed energy audits for all campus buildings. In fact, students are trained to conduct these energy audits. The recent renovation of East Hall dorm updated the existing structure rather than tearing down and building from scratch, and materials, such as bluestone, slate, and rough sawn timber, were locally sourced.
