“The campus gave me the opportunity to participate and make a difference,” explained Trevor Newton about what Monmouth has offered him.
Newton has made quite a difference since stepping on campus. He has been virtually everywhere at MC whether on the football field, giving tours on campus to prospective students as a Scot Ambassador and even performing in Theater productions at MC.
“I chose Monmouth because of the feel that I received when I arrived on campus,” Newton noted.
His other activities on campus include serving as President of the Associated Students of Monmouth College, and a member of the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program. Newton is also heavily involved in the residence halls, serving as the president of his hall council.
“College is meant to be a place to get involved and develop new ideas,” said Newton. “I feel like Monmouth College is the best place for me to do that.”
New ideas indeed, as Newton has been a part of organizing new organizations on campus including the Wrestling Club and the Venture Crew.
Newton was also honored during his first year, being selected as ‘Freshman Man of the Year.’ “It was a very satisfying and humble experience to be honored by my peers and faculty,” he commented.
Hoping to make a difference after college when he plans to teach, his enthusiasm for teaching is shown through the smile that is always on his face. Newton assured, “I want to improve the lives of the children I work with.”
Newton feels that anyone who comes to Monmouth should, “Go out, be fearless and get involved.”
