Monmouth College has the most beautiful campus I have ever encountered. Being covered with trees in the heart of the Midwest, the college goes from blossom filled spring to gloriously sunny summer to fiery autumn to a hilly winter wonderland, sometimes all in one month. The classes and campus is small enough that the professors genuinely know their students; sometimes even professors you've never had are aware of you and your accomplishments. The band programs are run by the most dedicated and energetic man ever, Professor M. Wanken, and they wouldn't have gotten this far without him. Prof. Wanken is even taking the Winds Ensemble on a tour of Ireland next spring break. Dr. Bridget Draxler makes the Writing Center a home for both tutors and students seeking help alike. The offices of the English department, my department, are always open for advice, homework help, or just chatting about life in general. Monmouth has it's fair share of jerks and intolerance, but so does every school in every state. Some people are just not nice. Despite that, Monmouth College has been my home for the past 3 years and will continue to be so for a long time to come. It's great to be a Scot!
