Monmouth University is great for students who want to join Greek life or play a sport. If you don't want to do either of those things, then I suggest you look elsewhere. Unfortunately, if you aren't apart of either of those things then you there will be nothing for you to do. Moreover, the campus is very small and on the campus itself there is not much to do, so you have to look outside of the campus for entertainment or have your car here to have fun. The food is average, but I suppose it's like that at most colleges. I do have to say that the professors here are amazing and that I actually look forward to going to class! I'm going to be transferring for my sophomore year because Monmouth is not for me, it doesn't challenge me as much as I would like it to. With that being said, my time here hasn't been absolutely miserable and if you're looking to play a sport of join Greek life then this is a great college for you.
Review Monmouth University
If you are not half brain dead, do not go here! The academic level at Monmouth is a complete joke. I majored in Business Finance and i graduated with a 3.8. The classes are not challenging enough but boy do they make some of the worthless gen ed classes a nightmare. Nonetheless, no matter how much they award you in scholarship do not be lured in just because of that .If you still want go here then definitely join Greek life or your time at Monmouth will be a complete let down. Trying to end on a positive note, I will say since the school is near the shore the bar life is great, the campus is gorgeous, and its D1 athletic teams are pretty good for a small private school.
Monmouth University is a home to many and the scenery is relaxing. Even as a commuter I've still made some friends and just meeting all types of people in the same situation as me, makes it an enjoyable experience! Learning about different lifestyles and habits are my favorite parts about my school. The classes are for the most part not too long and the professors use the time wisely. If I could, I would choose Monmouth all over again, because I'm certain that the education I'm receiving there will lead to a great outcome in my future!
