Once I found this school I instantly fell in love. The schools history and mine are quite similar, seeing as we both have Scottish backgrounds. This school has excited me to finish school like no other university. I can only hope to get admission and pursue the first step of the rest of my life!
If you're a person of color, take my advice and don't attend this college. I had the most racist experiences with staff, other students, and in Galesburg. The food here is very bland and someone needs to teach the cooks what seasoning is. There's not many class options or mental health resources (and the ones that are offered are ass). Nobody salts the sidewalks during the winter and there's nothing to do on weekends. The only good things about this school is how much financial aid they offer and how small the campus is (you won't get lost easily).
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!
