Monmouth University Reviews
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!
