Monmouth College & You

In my four years at Monmouth College, I was heavily involved which opened doors and pathways to leadership opportunities and lifelong friends. The love that I have for Monmouth runs deep, and it is an absolute honor to be able to connect with Alumni to hear their love for their alma mater and work for the college that really helped shape me into the person I am today. It makes me incredibly proud to say that I will always be a “Fighting Scot”.
