I have just completed my freshman year at monmouth college and I've got to admit, it was pretty good. Being an international student, I didn't know what to expect when I got here. It was a new environment, new culture, new people and different beliefs. Fortunately, Monmouth College is a place I can think of as home because that's how I've been treated since i got here. The community is wonderful, beautiful campus and the faculty and the students are just great. There's a lot of thing to be involved in on campus, and all these groups are welcoming. The academic programs offered at the college are taught by professionals who strive to connect with their students in every way they could.
Also, the college is quite diverse, with a good number of latino and African American students, along with international students.
Review Monmouth College
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!
Even though we are a D3 school, our athletics teams tend to excel in most areas. If anything, the only thing we ever lack is an adequate amount of members to participate for each event. Every now and then there is obvious favoritism from some select coaches. But for the most part it is fair.

As far as extracurricular clubs goes, there are plenty of them and many students are involved in at least one club whether it is purposefully or accidentally. They tend to be fun and beneficial to building skills.
