Student Story

Angela DarnleyAngela Darnley ('16), a current sophomore, came to Muskingum from Canton, Ohio, to major in Accounting, Business Management and Marketing with a minor in Economics.

Angela says, “When I first stepped on Muskingum’s campus for my visit, I immediately felt at home and like it was the place for me. I knew that the smaller campus atmosphere was right for me and it would be the perfect place to spend four years. I knew that I could be very involved within the campus community, while also succeeding academically.”

Angela stays busy as a member of the women’s basketball team, Lambda Sigma Honorary Society and Business Club. I try to be involved with as many volunteer opportunities as possible as well. Angela also spent her spring break in London – traveling, learning and earning six course credits!

 “In almost four semesters at Muskingum, I am most thankful for the professors and small class sizes. They are unbelievably helpful and always willing to do what they can to aid in students being successful. I honestly believe that without their availability, I would not be where I have gotten to in these two years. Their work gives students so many opportunities to get involved and do several different things. I have made a lot of friends [in classes], which also helps in being successful in the classroom, since we can all help one another out.”
