Student Life

A whole lot of life happens outside the classroom.

Build your resume for life

While your professors are busy helping you build your brain and preparing you to get a great job after graduation, the rest of the Monmouth campus is at work, too, helping you build your resume for life.

This is where you’ll learn some of the biggest, and most important, lessons about the world, about people and about yourself. You’ll figure out who you are and who you have the power to become.

It’s a syllabus for soaking up experience

At Monmouth, you’ll have more opportunities than you can count — and that’s on purpose. Our student life offerings are built with you at the center and constructed with just as much focus and care as your academic journey.

Every residence hall, every club, every sorority and fraternity, every intramural game, every encounter with a professor or fellow student, every heart-to-heart with a new friend from a different part of the country or the world — it’s all part of what makes Monmouth, well, Monmouth.

As you think about what you want out of a college, remember this combination of small classes, built-in campus life and relations can only happen at a place like this. Small enough to keep you from slipping through the cracks. Big enough to give you all the resources you need.

  • “We are fortunate our sons found their way to Monmouth. It is so much more than a place to earn a degree. From classroom, to athletic field, to study abroad, the relationships and experiences have prepared them to adapt and contribute in an ever changing world. Roll Scots!”
