I have loved my experience here at MuskingumSuper BrilliantBiology
I have loved my experience here at Muskingum University! The professors really care about their students, and they have played a huge role in setting me up for success after college. The Biology Department does a great job working with The Wilds so students can conduct research on their land. The people here have a lot of character and individuality which I enjoy. The town does not have much to offer, so you are probably either going to events on campus, going home, or partying off-campus on the weekends.

Muskingum University allows for so much opportunity forPsychology
Muskingum University allows for so much opportunity for growth, leadership development, and education. As a psychology major, I had an extremely positive experience with all of the faculty in the department. They were helpful, caring, and they had the students' best interest at heart. As a student in general, the number of organizations and opportunity is abundant. Those organizations allowed collaboration with staff who personally help to develop each student, and take an individual approach. Muskingum has a place for everyone if you're willing to open up and look. The community may not offer something like that of a large school, with numerous bars and restaurants, but again, if you're looking for such, you will find them not too far away. Down the road a few miles in Cambridge there are a number of fun and different places to dine/drink. For example, Downtown Arena, Park Circle Cafe, The Forum, Theo's, The Bear's Den, Deep Cut, and McKenna's Market. There are also many chain places such as Buffalo Wild Wings and Ruby Tuesday. Local private clubs often have entertainment open to the public like bands or shows on the weekend. Places like the Elks Lodge, Moose Lodge, VFW, etc. allow the public for certain events. I couldn't trade my experience at Muskingum University for one anywhere else, and I believe that anyone can leave Muskingum feeling this way if they are motivated to find their place.

If my school has a problem with somethingAverageHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
If my school has a problem with something I've done, they wait till a month after the event and call me in for a meeting 2 days before finals start, despite advising students to leave campus due to a water main break. My adviser has been lying to me, telling me Muskingum is going to kick me out (despite my grades getting better each semester) and makes jokes about suicide. There is nothing to do on weekends as everybody leaves, and the events that are set up by RA's are half-hearted, The food is slightly better than what I ate in high school, The head of the tutor program talks down to anyone with a disability trying to sign up, and the housing department will kick you and your friends out of the apartment that you signed the paperwork for just because 1 person left, even if you find a replacement. DO NOT COME HERE.
