Muhlenberg College is a small liberal arts
. It was
founded in 1848 in affiliation
with the Lutheran
. Muhlenberg College gets its name from Henry
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
