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!

My experience at Monmouth College has been amazing. I have learned so much about myself in and outside of the classroom. Socially, I learn new things about myself and others everyday. I overall have learned how to be a better person for myself and others while attending Monmouth College. I am very grateful to be a student of the school. I am fortunate enough to also have job and be provided with the opportunity to work with the offices that help in developing the college.
