An Evening of Distinction

Evening of Distinction 2015Muhlenberg alumni are some of the most talented individuals in the world. They are leaders, innovators and scholars. They push the boundaries of what is possible.

Philanthropic efforts have an enormous impact on Muhlenberg students. Members of HMMS and the Circle of 1848 are committed to making Muhlenberg an extraordinary place for future generations of students. Members are leaders in various industries with one thing in common – they believe in Muhlenberg.
