Monmouth & You

Why did you choose Monmouth?

I chose Monmouth because both of my parents attended Monmouth and met here on the track team. My parents loved Monmouth and sharing that love with them is special. I love how campus feels like a community and how close everyone is to one another. I also appreciate small class sizes and being able to create close relationships with my professors.

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

Trust your gut. As cheesy as it sounds, when you know which campus is home, you know.

What advice do you have for students who choose Monmouth?

Put yourself out there and get as involved as possible. Break out of your comfort zone and try new things, you will have a lot of support along the way!
