Three Monmouth College students will present the program for the next monthly meeting of Monmouth Associates on Nov. 18 at noon in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of the Stockdale Center.

Matthew Jefferson of Andalusia, Kimberleigh Morris of Gurnee and Rebecca Rottman of New Lenox will speak about “Blending East and West: Singapore’s Unique Approach to Mental Health.” The psychology students visited Singapore during the summer as part of a Monmouth College study-abroad experience.

The program is free; an optional buffet lunch costs $9. Reservations can be made by calling 309-457-2316 by Nov. 15 or by e-mail at
