Introduction to Liberal Arts

Welcome to Introduction to the Liberal Arts.

Prior to beginning your life here at Monmouth College, you will need to read two short pieces, linked below. Doing so will help you step into your roles as a scholar, class discussant, and collegiate community member. In addition, we’ve linked a number of questions which might be beneficial for you to consider as you’re reading (and rereading) the selections.

Your individual ILA professors should be in touch with you presently. In addition to welcoming you themselves, they will give you more specific instructions on how they’d like to handle your answers to the reading questions.

We all hope you enjoy this, your first college work, and we look forward to seeing you very soon!
