76% of adult Americans believe there is solid evidence that temperatures on the planet have risen over the last four decades, the highest level of acceptance recorded since the inception of MCIPO's National Surveys on Energy & Environment in 2008.
All students chose a First-Year Seminar (FYS)—small discussion-oriented courses that introduce students to academics at Muhlenberg. Students learn about the academic expectations at the College and what it means to think deeply,discuss, read and write critically about ideas. Working with your professor and a writing assistant, you will learn basic information about academics and academic resources.
FYS courses are offered by disciplines across the curriculum with a range of topics to choose from. Recent courses included Road Trip: Global Humanitarians, Quantum Weirdness & Probability and How Tea Conquered the World and Do Robots Dream.
Working with your academic advisor you will have the opportunity to begin exploring courses in disciplines that are new to you. Your first-year course work will go a long way toward helping you choose a major and eventually begin to focus your studies.
During your first year you will form a close connection with at least one professor. Maybe it will be your academic advisor, your FYS instructor or a professor in one of your classes. The ways that faculty work with students at Muhlenberg means you begin to form a lasting relationship with your professors—and maybe even find your faculty mentor.
