It is a perfect size school, where classes don't typically exceed 25-30 students, so you can interact with professors, make connections and actually learn. The campus life is beautiful and the surrounding area offers tons of things to do. The only downside is the large tuition, though they offer a lot of scholarship money for students, there is no need for such a high tuition.

Idelis

Monmouth University, is great if you want to go to a small school. The professors know who you are which comes to a great advantage when you need help with the coursework. It's also a small community so everybody knows each other and it's great to make friends.

Taylor

Monmouth University is a beautiful school located a mile from the New Jersey shoreline. The campus is medium sized with historical buildings in which are well preserved. The campus is upkept maintenance wise as well as the campus facilities remaining sanitary. The University offers stellar sports fields to provide the best experiences.

Alyssa

Overall it is a great school, other than the high expense of it. I have already learned so much and made so many friends in my first year. On campus housing is very suitable as both a freshman and sophomore, but most people move off campus by junior year. However housing off campus is also really expensive.

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

    Stay classy, Jess. I mean it: hold yourself to the standards that you set for yourself. Don't be a people pleaser. You're going to meet people who don't understand or care what you're going through, and they're going to weigh you down. There's nothing you can do about that: that's life. But as long as you stay classy, you'll rise above them. Pick your battles. Know when to walk away. Use your inside voice. As long as you can maintain your level of class through this all, then you're going to be the best that you can be. College is the time to reinvent yourself. Yes, mistakes have been made. But once you get to school, you don't have to be the same mousey girl who ate her lunch alone in the back of the library. So get out there, Jess. When in doubt, pinky out. You can do anything as long as you keep your shoulders back and your chin up. So stay classy, Jess. I love you.

    There are a lot of white students, it is a big majority, but there is still small groups of minorities. Also there are a lot of students with money, but many students who do not have money still earn schloarships to come study here. I would say a lot of people are not rich here.

  5. What are the academics like at your school?

    Academics at Monmouth are excellent. Professors really push students to get the best out of them. Teachers do not just give A's out at Monmouth. You are really pushed to show that you have critical thinking skills. Teachers also use a lot of hands-on projects in which you work with other students, which makes leaders into strong group leaders. All students are also required to have an Ex-Ed requirement which can be fullfilled by internship or study aboard. This is a great experience for students to see and understand the real world.

  7. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    I think Monmouth is the perfect size. You can walk to all your classes- no buses to get around. You get to know a lot of the students, but it still feels like there is so many more people students can know. People sometimes react when I say I go to Monmouth that "oh you're going to the rich Brookdale", but I really do not see it as that. This in no way is an easy school to get into and requires a lot more dedication and work then a community college. One of the biggest problems Monmouth students are faced with is dealing with the community. We are surrounded by gorgeous beach towns such as Deal and West Long Branch. Many of these communities do not like that students rent homes here, but it is a fact that students need homes to live in. Students must try to respect the fact that families do live here, but the communities must also learn to give students a chance.
