Since its founding in 1837, Muskingum has been a community of learners - people learning from and with other people. Muskingum College is rich in tradition, its proud heritage reaching back to the first half of the nineteenth century when Ohio was an infant state and covered wagons were bringing adventurous settlers westward over the newly completed National Road through New Concord. Muskingum's excellence is measured most significantly by its alumni, who have served the world as CEO's of major corporations, major media figures, scientists, educators, civic and religious leaders, and as parents and friends.
