Monmouth College & You

It took me years to realize and appreciate my time as an undergraduate at Monmouth College, I was involved in a lot of things and made some very strong friendships, but four years certainly flew by. I have been connected to this place since before I was born, and I look forward to helping build a solid foundation for the next generation of Fighting Scots!
