Muskingum College is a selective, private four-year liberal arts college located in New Concord, Ohio, approximately sixty miles east of the state capital of Columbus. Founded in 1837, Muskingum College is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), although since the 1960s the school's religious nature has significantly diminished. School colors are black and magenta and the school's mascot is the “Fighting Muskie” (the muskellunge, the largest member of the pike family). The school's motto is "Omni, Trinum, Perfectum", Latin for "all perfect things are three-sided" a reference to both the Christian Trinity and Muskingum's mission to develop their students' minds, bodies and souls. Collectively the school's alumni are referred to as the "Long Magenta Line" and students (both past and present) are known simply as "Muskies". New Concord, Ohio is located in far eastern Muskingum County, OH, which derives its name from the Muskingum River. Hence the often misspelled and mispronounced Delaware Indian word Muskingum (translation- "village on the river bank" and/or "glare of an elk's eye"- there's a dispute) was used in naming the school.

A sculpture on Muskingum's Quad often referred to as the "pregnant kangaroo"
  1. School Colors - Black and Magenta. The school officially made these the school's colors during the 1894-95 academic year. Legend has it that the color magenta was inspired years ago by a ribbon on a much admired hat of a lady faculty member.
  2. Muskie "Hi!" - It is tradition that students, administrators and faculty members greet each individual they see on campus with a cheerful "Hi!" Because the campus is small, students quickly become familiar with virtually everyone on campus.
  3. College Seal - Another respected tradition at Muskingum is that of never stepping on the college seal which is inlaid in the floor of the main entrance to Montgomery Hall. Legend has it that breaking this taboo results in the violator failing their next examination.
  4. Spoon-holder - According to campus lore, sweethearts who kiss three times on the Spoon-holder, a small gazebo on the shore of the college lake, will someday marry.
  5. Illumination Nights - the campus is illuminated on Commencement Weekend and Alumni Weekend, when the entire campus is lit with Japanese laterns.
  6. Chapel... the campus community gathers for worship in Brown Chapel on Thursdays at 11 a.m. No classes are scheduled during this hour in order that a time for reflection and renewal might be observed.
  7. Alumni Weekend - occurs annually, usually in mid-June. Hundreds of Muskingum College alumni converge on campus for class reunions, the president's state of the college address and the alumni banquet.
  8. United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America - the precursor to the current Presbyterian Church (USA), was established during merger talks between the United Presbyterian Church of North America and the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America in Muskingum College's Brown Chapel in 1958.
  9. Bob Jones, Sr. - ,the founder of Bob Jones University, was awarded an honorary degree by Muskingum in 1921. In less than a decade Jones would establish his controversal fundamentalist Christian school
  10. Ghost of Patton Hall - Patton Hall is said to be haunted by the spirit of a female student who hung herself on the third floor.
