Monmouth & You

Why did you choose Monmouth?

I chose Monmouth College because I fell in love with the campus and its community. The students, faculty and staff, and squirrels, were charming and inviting from the start! Seeing the campus, especially in the winter, convinced me that Monmouth was the right place to be.

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

Look for a college that makes you feel at home. Look inward for that sense of self you feel most comfortable expressing and find a school that nurtures that identity.

What advice do you have for students who choose Monmouth?

Take lots of time to find a circle of friends that care about you and your dreams. Seek professors that encourage you to be the best version of yourself. Commit to excellence and never lose sight of your aspirations.
