Interesting and talkative.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit the school and spend time looking around and asking questions away from your tour guide. This is necessary to get the full experience of the school. The quide wants you to attend this school and they will tell you eveerything that you want to hear to get your attendence. Talk to faculty and staff in your department and begin to look at your specific focus to find out if you can get exactly what you are looking for from the school. Talk to the students that you see walking around campus. See how they feel about this school and ask for their complete honesty. And finally, eat a meal or two at the school and see what their diffferent food options are.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Student affairs staff, because they are almost completely unmonitered in terms of their actions.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Academically, our school is known for its great liberal arts program and its great on campus-living.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you find out what really happens during the weekends and week nights at the campus you choose. Most of the time the academics will be fine, but its the other extra-curricular activities that will really make the difference between the colleges, especially at smaller schools.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say that students should develop strong relationships with peers who share interests and should also spend time getting to know their professors. Some of my most important relationships were with professors... and they helped me get a much clearer idea of my direction in life.

The Education Department was very lacking. Did not prepare me for what was to come...

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think anyone could be successful here if they chose to be, but I wouldn't recommend it to someone going into the field of education.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

For the students, I think the most important thing about finding a college is look at several differnet options. If you look several different places you will know where you belong. When I went to visit Monmouth it was like a home to me and I knew it was the place for me. College is a time in ones life that will be unfogettable, finding the best college or university is challenging. However, if you feel home, I can guarentee you will succeed. I would also suggest, that as soon as you enter in college join something that will get you involved. The more involved, the more expierence you will have at school. This also leads to a memory's with the friends that you will have. For the parents, I would say let your child pick where he or she wants to go then worry about finicial situations. Many schools have scholarships and financial help if needed. My family was very worried about money but Monmouth was willing to give loans. College is an amazing time and I would suggest that every child should go through this expierence because it is a once and a life time opportunity.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is willing to put time and effort into their learning. This school is very helpful with professor help, but it is demanding.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is known for being a Liberal Arts College. Another thing that my college is known for is to have a faculty that is interested in helping the students learn. There are only professors that teach in the classrooms. There are no teaching assistants, however, there are lab assistants.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone can attend this college. The student population here tends to be primarily from the rural area, however, the college is also built and can accomodate those from the city.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit, ask questions about academic requirements, at this school there are many requirements that i found out after i already enrolled. ask what there is to do on weekends. make sure there are movie theaters, malls, mini golfing places or whatever. academics isn't the only thing to do. Also, see if it is a party school. Small schools are generally centered around drinking.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person like me, who hates small towns. This town is in the middle of nowhere and there is nothing to do. Also, this college is centered around sorority and fraternities. If you don't want to join, don't come here!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College could be the best or worst years of your life. It is your job to make the best of it. Finding the right college for you is huge, and parents remember that it is not you who will be living there for the next four years so make sure your son/daughter has the majority of the choice. To the student, don't be afraid to leave home and the friends there. Making new friends in college is quite the experience. You will go out of your comfort zone, you will cry, you will laugh, and you will find people who will become some of the best friends that you will ever find. College will help you discover who you are. You will take the journey from a teenager to an adult. By the end of college, you will be ready to live on your own and appreciate as well. Don't let college fly by you, enjoy every second of it.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

If you don't like to drink or play sports you won't fit in very easily. There isn't much to do on campus that doesn't involve those two things. It's a small town and small town things are what Monmouth is about. Not good for city folk.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Monmouth has a beautiful campus. We have small classes and a nice environment.
