Monmouth University Reviews
They have the size and atmosphere of a small school, with only about 6,000 students. However, the offices of the President, Registrar, Bursar, etc. have no care for the individual students. Asking them questions is futile and the reasoning behind going to a small school goes out the window. If it weren't for the few amazing professors and friendly people around campus, they would be 1 star. Monmouth administration does not put in the effort a school of its size is expected to. Not to mention a terrible mental health system on campus, no point whatsoever in approaching them at all. Socially, half of the campus goes home on the weekends. Plus, the school has policy after policy that disrespects and undermines the potential success of BIPOC students. This University certainly has its positives, but the negatives are blaring.
Monmouth had its up and downs. But overall, I would never regret coming here. The amount of opportunities Monmouth offers their students, is remarkable. Their internships, study and social opportunities are exceed beyond what I can pair and it!
Monmouth University offers many ways for students to become involved with the community, ranging from athletics to volunteer work and even jobs. It is much appreciated coming from a poor background and allows me the opportunity to give back to my community and gain experience in my major, that is, Communications. I have only heard great things from this school and hope to make the best of it!
