Monmouth & You

Why did you choose Monmouth?

I chose Monmouth College because I grew up in a very similar college town. Right away when I first visited, it reminded me so much of home. I wanted to go to an out of state school and have experiences away from my family, and this school allowed me to do that while still giving me reminders of where I grew up.

What advice do you have for students searching for a college?

Make sure you aren’t settling for the first school that looks good to you. Look around at several different schools and make as many visits as you can to be sure you’re getting a good idea of what you’re really looking for in a college.

What advice do you have for students who choose Monmouth?

There are countless opportunities on this campus, but you have to be the one to make them happen. Put yourself out there, try new things, and do your best to make the most out of your college experience.
