Where “What if” becomes “What’s next?”

Website after website. Email after email. Your college search presents one possible future after another.

At Monmouth, we believe life is too short to force you into just one way of doing things. That’s why we’ve built an entire college experience — from our professors, to our campus life, to our study abroad program — where you won’t ever be left guessing, “What if?”

At Monmouth, you get to try it all

You will test the different versions of yourself you might want to become. Get involved in athletics and spiritual life. Go Greek, or go global. Live on campus, but think beyond. And you get to do it at a place small enough to be deeply personal, but big enough to never get boring. A place where you can stand out when you want to and blend in when you need to.

  • “Coming from another school, Monmouth accepted me instantly. The students and professors all helped me transition from my old school to here and the family aspect really hit home immediately. It felt like I had been here forever. The professors and advisors really helped with the transition of credits which can be a challenge but here it was never an issue.”

  • “As the parent of an out-of-state student, I was really worried about sending our only child to a college many states away.

    Jennifer Cutright (parent of Alexander ’21)
