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!
Athletics are a major part of the culture at Monmouth University. I am very proud to say that many of my fellow Political Science majors are on the football team. The bond created by our sports is priceless. We all support our athletes regardless of personal interest in a particular sport. Monmouth Hawks bleed blue and we are devout supporters of all of our teams. School spirit and fan supprt is exceptionally high. The university takes pride in such especially because it offers great student discounts on tickets and has many prize opportunites at the games. More so than that, our teams give back as well. Recently, our basketball teams sponsored a food drive to aid less fortunate families in having meals over the winter holidays. At Monmouth, sports bring people together. They are so much more than games!
Monmouth has several events on campus ad students have the ability to be very vocal on any current events while on campus! Students tend to spread a positive message and become very involved in good causes! This in itself creates more of a possibility to create a chain reaction from student to student. The campus is beautiful and all the professors show that they are more than glad to have the job they do! The school inspires all to take chances and follow through with any set goals! I would recommend this school to anyone who desires to get a little bit of a push in their life to succeed.
