Muhlenberg College is a small liberal arts college in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. It was founded in 1848 in affiliation with the Lutheran Church. Muhlenberg College gets its name from Henry Melchior Muhlenberg who was the "patriarch" of the Lutheran Church in Colonial America.

I wouldn't call Muhlenberg College today a religous school, per se. It has excellent programs in the natural sciences (especially pre-med), social sciences, humanities, and arts (especially drama). What the school lacks due to its small size, it more than makes up for in the quality of education the dedicated faculty provide.

The campus is beautiful and the people there are extrodinarily nice. They have a web page at .
