We are fully integrated into the campus community, with Muhlenberg College classes taking place in Hillel and fresh kosher food at every meal in the main dining hall for all to enjoy. Jewish students at Muhlenberg are active and engaged. The year is packed with student-driven programming that will give you the opportunity to change the world around you and unpack what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century.
