I really like Monmouth. Its academic programs are very interesting particularly in Economics. I can say that the economics program of Monmouth is a good one for me because of my future aspirations. As a prospective student, I will be very happy to be a part of Monmouth community this Fall. Furthermore, in terms of scholarship, even if I did not receive a full scholarship from Monmouth, what they gave me is very impressive and helpful financially. I love Monmouth!

Monmouth is small, rural, and extemely expensive for what it is. If you're an average student or an especially high achieving one, do not saddle yourself with years of debt to attend.

Overall, the professors are fine. The administration is less great, and ultimately, it is not a great environment for black students (or others of color) due to a variety of factors like location & rarely having faculty of color.

There are far more cost effective ways to earn your degree without saddling yourself with the debt you'll get from Monmouth.

I graduated from a public university three years after I left MC, immediately got a good job and worked my way through a great career. Staying at MC would have ruined me financially, and I'm glad I got away before it was too late.

There's nothing here you can't get somewhere else. Unless you are well-off, do not do this to yourself.
