Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota is owned and operated by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, and trains men to become pastors within the faith, as well as both men and women to become teachers and administrators. B.S. degrees are available in elementary education, secondary education, pre-seminary, and staff ministry, as are Master’s in Ministry degrees. Continuing-education courses also help keep teachers up to speed well after graduation. The small size of about 800 students allows for individualized attention, with a student-to-faculty ratio of about 11 to 1. The expansive, wooded campus contains four residence halls, a library and student union, a gym and more, and the surrounding city offers free membership to its recreation center to all MLC students. Participation in the music department is especially popular here; the campus boasts twenty pipe organs in all, in addition to a wind symphony, jazz band, and vocal and hand-bell choirs. Also, the MLC Knights compete in a variety of sports, from track and softball to volleyball and cross country. Martin Luther College is devoted not only to service and the church, but to getting its students in touch with their greatest, most spiritual selves.
