I like our town. We're small, but not unknown. I moved here between the summer of the 6th-7th grade academic school year. My life has changed for the better. I got my first job here, and I overcame many, many obstacles in my life here. There are many good things this town has to offer. We have Monmouth College, an amazing 4-year business university. We also have many nice little stores, one of which I work at, and nice restaurants as well. Fun fact: Wyatt Earp was born in Monmouth, IL. I think Monmouth is a town that is underrated. Our Hispanic population has a rich culture that they share with the shops on main st. We truly have a melting pot lovely little town.

Monmouth is great place to live. I'm an international college student residing at the Monmouth College campus and so far, I've got to admit, it has been swell. It is a peaceful environment with a lot of nice people on the college campus and in town. I think Monmouth is a great community to raise a family or send your kids to college. the place isn't much of a party scene but one does appreciate the tranquility that comes with it.
It has small town feel with lots of diversity. You have several fast food chains to choose from. Two grocery stores. Two pharmacies. A hospital with a clinic that has weekend and night appointments. It has three grade schools that focus on two to three grade levels giving a smaller learning environment for the children. The schools also provide help to those who do not speak english.
