Named for the year in which Muhlenberg College was established, the society recognizes the vital role benefactors played in Muhlenberg’s emergence as a respected, four-year, residential liberal arts institution and the role they play today in ensuring its continued success. 

Member benefits

Members receive invitations to special events such as the Advent Candlelight Carols and a summer theatre production, a lapel pin, the Circle of 1848 monthly newsletter and listings in various College publications.
