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!

Monmouth makes every student feel like an individual, you are not just a number in the classroom. Coming from a small, Catholic high school, this was exactly the type of classroom experience that I wanted. I was nervous that I would not be able to put myself out there academically and socially, but Monmouth makes it very easy to become involved! I have even won a Dean's Excellence award during the Education Department's Scholarship week in the spring! Without Monmouth, I would not have been able to accomplish certain things and I guarentee I would not have accomplished these amazing things at any other college!
Monmouth University is a wonderful school with lots of opportunities to get involved. Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be an athlete or join greek life to have a good experience! There are numerous clubs and activities to get involved with. You will meet your closest friends!
