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

The school should be where you are compfortable it is essentially your new life. You will live, learn, and experience at this college so feeling that compfort will help the transition. Also see what activities the school offers because a lot of social life revolves around this aspect as well as a great learning experience. It will be a great time and it should be, these are the essential building blocks to leading our generation to become so much greater. Finding the right college will create a strong sense of belonging to the college experience and really being involved and having a love for what you do as a student will make the college of your choice right. Believe in yourself and give all you have, there isn't much more you can ask if you do that.

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

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

This school provides a solid academic education, with a wide variety of classes and extremely knowledgable professors who offer a plethora of resources for those who are willing to work for it and are actually interested in furthering their education.

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

Don't follow what others are doing; choose a school based on what it can offer you and whether or not you feel you will fit it. For parents, let their child make the choice for themselves, be supportive and encouraging but do not try to control their decision. In order to make the most of a college experience, be friendly and open, but be yourself and take part in activities that interest you rather than what others are doing. The best way to make long lasting friends is to meet them doing activites that you care about. In order to get the best education possible, you must work hard and put classes first. Once you get your work done, there will still be time for fun and socializing. You will get out of your college experience as much as you put into it, so the more you work at it, both socially and academically, the more successful you will be.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is intrinsically and self-motivated. There are many resources available, but you must reach out to them in order to benefit. Also a person who is secure in their financial situation. It is in an affluent area and many students depend on their families financial support and are not a typical "struggling college student". People who attend this school should be socially outgoing and should be in tuned with the latest fashions, if they desire to fit in with the look of the majority.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Monmouth University is best known for its beautiful campus and friendly atmosphere. The shore is less than a mile away so campus life is like living on the beach. Monmouth's small campus is just like a small community where friends are like family and professors are more like mentors.

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

I first visited Monmouth University in my senior year of high school and as soon as I arrived on the campus, I felt like I was home. The most important thing in finding the right school for yourself is finding a school that makes you feel like you belong. It's a huge step to move away from home and finding a school where you feel like your at home again makes everything easier. Going to college is another chapter of your life and it should be exciting but it will also be scary. If you've found the right school, you will thrive and you will accomplish things that you never dreamed you could. You must love where you are to really show your true colors. So when visiting your prospective schools its's important to love what they can offer, but it's also very important to feel like you belong and want to call your new school home.

What kind of person should attend this school?

An open minded and high spirited person would fit into Monmouth University perfectly. Someone who is passionate will succeed at Monmouth because Monmouth is the spark for the fire you have in your belly. Only those who want to achieve great things and have the time of their life would fit in at Monmouth.

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

I would tell parents and students to get involved because that sort of activity really helps you to meet new people. Look for a college where you think you would feel comfortable in terms of being close or far enough from home.

What's unique about your campus?

My girlfriend because I love her!

Do not choose a college based on name or location, examine the your major of choice and see if the classes and direction the program heads in is right for you!

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

Finding the right college is very imortant. However, if youre an adaptable person, youll find the right people to have a great time with, and sometimes inevitably become life long friends. Have as much fun as possible, because its the best 4 or 5 years of your life, however, dont get caught up with too much that your time is imbalanced between work and fun. Gotta do work, but the rewards for the fun part are worth it.

Go on toures of the campus and neighborhoods around the campus. I almost went to another school that would have been horrible. Make a decision based on education, not sports or a "party" atmosphere.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew that the people who go to this school are very wealthy.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is located at the Jersey shore less than one mile rom the beach. The campus itsel is very beautiful and upgraded with top of the line technology. We have great business, art, and communication programs and facilities. The staff and counslors here are very helpful and do this in a timley manner. The atmosphere is very welcoming to everyone their is not a lot of hate. Bottom line is if you want a good education which will put you ahead of other canditates for your entry level job Monmouth is a place to be.

Describe the students at your school.

My class mates are diverse and come rom all types of backrounds. Most are from around the state of New Jersery and wanted to get out of their perents house to get the college experience but not go to far from home. Everyone is very friendly , outgoing, social, and willing to help. Eveyone here is focused on their futrue and gettign a good career. Their are lost of social events in which students gather to have a good time. I have met people at Monmouth that I will network with the most of my life.

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

Parents: You might have a college in mind that you want your child to go to (maybe where you went) or you might want your child to follow in your footsteps but the bottom line is freshmen year at college is probably the most memorable so let you kids choose and support them at whatever it is they want to do as much as they my not act liek they want your support they not only want it but they need it. Student: In order to make the most of your college experience you number one have to have fun because if your not having fun you will get depressed and that only leads to negatve things. with this being said you cannot have too much fun their needs to be a balance. This will be the first time a lot of you live away from home but you need to remember your grades and your degree will determine your future. So you need to staay focused and remember the real reason you are their is to learn and expand you knowledge (not to party).

Look at class sizes, the sourrounding areas, and extracurriculars. You will learn information everywhere but you need to make sure that these three things are good for you personally to have a great college experience.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are focused, ethnically diverse, kind, helpful, rather small in numbers due to small classroom sizes, driven, motivated, group of people who never hesitate to ask questions and advance their learning by way of research and personal commitment.

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

The key to finding the perfect college, in my opinion, requires the new college student to think about what means the most to them as an individual. Are they academically focused and driven towards achieving a degree for a great career? Are they laid back and intent on partying, having a good time? Are they interested in meeting people and building friendships and relationships to last a lifetime? These are very important, philosophical questions. Because of this, the new student always needs to develop or continue their own personal philosophy about their education before they get started. It's very important to figure out exactly why you are going to college and what you plan on doing while you're there. The best advantages for a new student are to make sure that they find a school with a great deal of resources available. Schools with resources that the students actually use and gain advantages are schools that are usually good choices. These resources, and the personal philosophy of each student, are the most critical ideas when choosing a college. My advice: Find out for yourself why you are going to college. Personal drive/sacrifice will always work. Good Luck!

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

I really do not believe there is a "worst" thing about Monmouth University. People here are good people that are very focused, the Professors are here to help students succeed, and the campus is beautiful. If there is one thing I can even think of that might be coming up a little bit short, it's the availability of parking in some places. Parking spaces by the dorms are pretty expensive and they go quickly, so students who want a car on campus need to tackle it fast. Otherwise, things are great here.
