The school is very good. The professors care a lot about their students and how well they do. It is a liberal arts college meaning that they focus on teaching the students the importance of learning multiple subjects rather than having expertise in only one area. The school has the Integrated Studies course that everyone is required to take. Freshmen take "Introduction to Liberal Arts," sophomores take "Global Perspectives," juniors take "Reflections," and seniors take a course on "Citizenship." These courses help the students become aware of their communities and get them involved in helping to make the world a more welcoming and overall a better place. Because the school is in a very small town, it is not as diverse as other schools closer to the cities and big towns. However, everyone is welcoming and very helpful. They emphasize the importance of helping one another and the professors are excellent in helping their students achieve and reach their highest potential.

Monmouth College allows one to find themselves through a variety of extracurricular activities. There is just about anything to get involved in. If not, it is encouraged to find yourself and to start an organization of your own. I think the professors really care about their students. I appreciate it's history and being one of the first institutions to be inclusive and not exclusive. I think the school needs to work more on retention, understanding diversity, and to recognize problematic culture.
I loved everything about monmouth! It is a very very great school. It has a very friendly atmosphere and the professors are amazing. They care about you as a student and strive for you to go far I life. One thing I would probably change about monmouth college would be not having any air in the underclassmen dorms. I would highly recommend Monmouth college!
