Monmouth College Reviews

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.

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!
I really did love Monmouth College. The campus was absolutely beautiful, and I loved how small it was. It made the walks to class bearable, especially in the winter, and it was a very open environment so everyone could hangout. The professors I had within my field of study were very professional and very willing to meet outside of class, especially during finals weeks. Monmouth is a small town, which means they do not have a ton of entertainment, but Galesburg and Macomb are a pretty close drive and there is more of a variety for things to do on the weekends.
