Monmouth & You

Why did you choose Monmouth?

I chose Monmouth to get the opportunity to really bond with my professors and excel in the small school environment. The campus felt like home the first time I stepped on it, so I knew I would be able to fit in and have a chance to push myself in academics as well as athletics.

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

When you are looking for a school to spend your next four years, really take into consideration what it is that you want. There can be a lot of outside opinions going into your decisions about where you should go to school, but at the end of the day a student should go where they feel the most at home.

What advice do you have for students who choose Monmouth?

As a student, you should get involved and do things that you never thought you would. Coming to college can be overwhelming and is a huge life change, but never be afraid to ask anyone on campus a question. All the faculty/staff and other students are what make Monmouth such a welcoming environment and are happy to help.
