The best thing about Monmouth is the beach. It gives the whole campus and school year a different feeling than any other schools I have visited. Being a part of the Cheerleading team at Monmouth is one of the best decisions I have made since I've been there. I get to do community service for good causes and I get to be a part of something fun. The only thing I would change about MU is the school spirit. A select few people show soo much spirit but as a whole the school doesn't have nearly as much spirit as my home town. I would like to see the stands filled more at football games.
I dont think anyone would feel out of place at monmouth. There is something weird though, a select group of people tend to get VERY dressed up for class, and not like business dressed like heels and a dress. I on the other hand end up going in sweats sometimes. I think that many different types of people become friends from going to any school including Monmouth. Most students that come to Monmouth I feel like are from usually NJ and a lot of times within like 1/2 hr to 1 hr away. I think anyone can feel comfortable at Monmouth. And not everyone that comes here comes from Money. There are a handful of people that come here because their parents work here and they are able to attend for free.
I LOVE MONMOUTH!
No, I think every school has their groups and there may be a group of snobby people at Monmouth but not everyone is like that. I've met some of the best friends I have here and they do not fit the stereotype.
I love the faculty at Monmouth. I have never met a rude person on campus. It's kind of weird actually you think when you go to college your teachers wont know your "name" anymore and they wont know if you were a good student in high school but here they do. Teachers pay sooo much attention to you (not like in high school when your teachers say when you get to college your professors wont be watching over you) but they do. I think the requirements at Monmouth are accurate. Once you get into upper classes like junior and senior year depending on your major, mine business management, most classes are basically all class participation and presentations. I find it easy to stay on top of my school work without stressing myself out too much with studying and homework. However, some weeks can be really tough.
At monmouth most people are involved in some type of organization. whether it be sports, clubs, or frats/sororities. i think that sororities think they own the school sometimes and it can be annoying. i particularly think there is more to school than that. I think mu isnt such a party school but there are definately more options of things to do as you get older. and when you are old enough for the bars that is mostly what the weekend consists of. I think a lot of people work though because there are a lot of places to get a part time or full time job and a lot of babysitting oppportunities around the area so most people work sometimes. there are so many things to do off campus especially pier village. it is so nice to go there and just walk. there are so many places to eat too around the campus.
That they are rich and snobby
The dining hall food is terrible
The dining hall food is terrible

girls are very stuck up everyone is very rich

Monmouth is a small campus that you can walk from the one side of campus to the other in about 10-15 min. Its a beautiful campus though..they really keep it looking nice. Its exciting because they are building the new MAC center which is going to host the new basketball stadium. This MAC center will look like the new fitness/activity centers that many of the bigger schools and other schools have recently built. Living on campus is not guarenteed for freshman, but i think they are trying to. The resident side is split by and underpath from the rest of the campus. All the dorm buildings are right by eachother so it is easy to go visit a friend in another building. From what i have seen, Monmouth seems to be becoming more popular. When I tell people I go to Monmouh, most people have heard of it. One of the biggest problems though, is it is not really a college town. Outside of the campus is a residential area..and the residents are not always thrilled that they have college students as neighbors. So when you live off campus ( which will most likely happen because housing is limited for upperclassmen) you have to be careful of your neighbors.
Most of the students are from New Jersey and the tri-state area. There are a few students from California and different countries too. The school is a private school so it is expensive to attend, but scholarships and financial aid help to bring different socioeconomic and finacial backgrounds to the school. The school is not known for being diverse (esp. compared to a school like Rutgers), but they are trying to make it more diverse. Everyone can fit in at Monmouth and there are various clubs and activities that accomodate different races, ethnicities, religious views, and sexual orientations. Everyone seems to get along around campus.
No. The school is less than a mile from the beach so when it is nice out it is possible to walk to the beach. There is a lot to do around the area. Monmouth is really what you make of it. If you get involved like join a group or team (dance team!), you will have friends to hang out with on the weekends that you thought everyone went home and people to get inside the loop about what is going on that night. SABs ( student activities board) is trying to having activites and events that keep students on campus during the weekend. Most of the athletic teams are good too and they have gams on weekends that the players and fans usually stay on campus. It is true that some nights you may not find a big party and you will just have to hang out wtih some close friends or your roommate but no one said that was actually a bad idea. Not everyone is snobby and rich..you just have to find the right group of friends to hang with. Give everyone a chance and don't judge too quickly people will suprise you! Remember as a freshman everyone is in the same position as you and looking for friends
The classes at Monmouth are generally small. The largest classes are probably between 25-30 students. Im a math and education major. Since math isn't a very popular major..my classes vary in size. I've had a few math classes with between 12-18 student. My gen ed classes and education classes have more student in them, but usually the univeristy caps the size at 30. In the classes the professors do get to know your names. I had very few professors that did not know everyones name. That also means attendance is important. Some professors (esp. freshman year or determined by the departments) make attendance and participation count for a grade. Other teachers say you are paying to be here so you should come to class. The classrooms are not big lecture halls and are usually either in classrooms with desks or tables or computer labs depending on the class. Most of the professors do use technology in there classrooms and are capable of communicating online through email or ecampus. Ecampus it a place where teachers will post your grades, ask you to "dropbox" assignments, and display other important information.
There are many different activities across campus. There is an activity or club for any interest you may have, and if not you can start one. I am mainly involved in dance team, which is a try-out based team. We perform at various events including football, basketball, frat/sorrority events, and other campus functions. Homecoming is one of the best activites that is planned for the year. The night before there is usually a bonfire/pep rally planned. The next day is the homecoming football game in which people get up early to start tailgating. Frats and sorrorities are important at the school. A lot of people are involved in one and they do a lot of community service and school events. Since MU is a smaller school, you can see groups and clicks. For example, the athletic teams, sorrieties and frats, and different clubs all hangout with one another. Not everyone is involved in a club, team, sorrority/frat, or organization, but a lot of people are and find it easier to be a part of the school.
People belive Monmouth is a suitcase school and there is nothing to do on weekends. Everyone that goes to monmouth is rich and snobby.

I think Monmouth is the perfect size. Monmouth has a gorgeous campus. Most students are convinced that all of our tuition money goes to the landscaping. Regardless of what people say about Monmouth being boring, if you are fun person, you are going to have a lot of fun. The location is perfect because the beach is literally right down the street.
There is a good blend of people at monmouth. No one really dresses up for class. Its pretty laid back. The dining halls food is bangin.
Monmouth is a good time. Make sure its the school for you. Don't slack on your school work but dont forget to have fun. There is always something to do. So if your looking to party every weekend starting wednesday, it is possible.
Not everyone from monmouth is wealthy. I personally don't have a lot of money. I think society in general is always going to be clicky so there really is no way to get around that. And yes, monmouth does have the hottest girls.
The classes are small. So you will be able to have a personal experience with your professors.
The people that i am closest to are the people tha tliv ein my suite. There are parties on and off campus. Greek life is a pretty big deal. I personally dont like greek life, it reminds me of a cult. Football games are a pretty big deal.
That we are all rich kids and stuck up. Also, that monmouth is just another version of highschool with its clicks. And according to playboy we have the hottest girls.

The best thing to me about Monmouth, is the campus. The campus is beautiful. The people that take care of it do an excellent job at it and are always up early working to make it a warm find place. The food and staff at Monmouth are always on the ball with everything. It's great food and each night they try and make it a new theme so you don't eat the same thing every night. I love the staff here at Monmouth as well, they are always free and willing to give you there time. They are very helpful with everything and always have a answer for you. Another thing that is great about Monmouth is the computer staff, many college students have to write papers, or surf the net and sometimes your computer can fail, whats nice about Monmouth is someone is always there to fix it!
One thing that i love about Monmouth are the building. We have some of the oldest buildings around and they are all kept it the greatest shape. I also enjoy the classes and classroom size. Every teacher knows your name by at least the second week of school and it's easy to get along with your classmates as well because there isn't that many of them to be shy around. Monmouth also has great sports teams and fans as well. The campus is beautiful and always being taken care of.
Monmouth's student body is wonderful. Everyone is so outgoing and well-rounded. I made so my unbelievible friends this past year its amazing. I feel that these are all friends that i'm going to kepp for the rest of my life.
Monmouth ones one of my last choices of college as strange as it may seem, but i couldn't express to you how happy i am to be here and how much i love you. I truly made the right choice for my future :]!
We don't have them. Athletes aren't just friends with athletes they are friends with everyone, as well as students involved with drama or anything else, even Frats are welcoming, it's a wonderful place to be
Coming from sophmore now, my experience at Monmouth has helped me to realize that grades are very important, and if you want a school that's going to help gear you into the right direction Monmouth is the one. Monmouth has the best academics program i have ever seen. The staff of teachers are always free and willing to give you the time and help that you need. We have special centers that are opened to help with art, writting, math, anything that you may need help with they have may people that are specialized in your subject for help.
Being part of Monmouth University's Track and Feild as well as Cross Country team, I would say that the social enivorment at Monmouth is amazing. Being an athlete doesn't mean you can only be friends with the players on your team, here at Monmouth, athletes are friends with everyone. It's just a title not a meaning to us. We are titled as an Athlete, just as anyone else would be titled as an artist, or an actor. But, that's a title her you don't have to carry that title out with you. Once you step on the feild or track, that's when your sports comes into play or of course at practice as well, but once that time is up we are just normal people, and have an everyday life like anyone, and thats something i cherrish a lot about Monmouth is that everyone is looked at equal.
There really isn't any type of stereotype at Monmouth, everyone is very friendly and welcoming.
The student body is wonderful. I have made so many friends just being a freshman in one year than i could think to imagine. Everyone here is so welcoming and made it very easy and nice my first year here.
Yes, Monmouth is the best!
My favorite class at Monmouth has to be Information Technology. I enjoyed this class because we got to work well with computers and learn new and exciting things about them as well. It was also one of my more easiest classes that i had to take as well. My least favorite class has to be history. I dislike history a lot so having to take it really bummed me out, but i had a wornderful professor and she made history fun and exciting for me this past year.
The social and athletic life at Monmouth is very welcoming and everyone is really fun to hang around. I have never heard of any fights or miscommunications with anyone here, and that really helps to make the school atmosphere!
We really don't have stereotypes here at Monmouth University. Everyone is very friendly and helpful as well. It's very easy to make friends here.

The academics are great - - personally, i've never had a complaint about one teacher. Actually that's a lie, but you find out pretty quick from others which professors not to take. The classes are challenging, but not overwhelming- - as with any school, I guess it depends on your course load. That is also speaking from a non-honors standpoint. The people are incredibly fake - - literally, every one of them. It is bad enough that even you yourself are forced to be fake around people, just to avoid confusion. The students, in my tenure, tends to be the frats/sororities or anyone else held to a higher standard by the rest of the facebook-addicted, drone like student body, that are very used to getting their way. People become preoccupied with other people, and other people's problems, I can honestly say there is very little privacy at the school. In addition, the VAST majority of the students are preoccupied with other things, notably working and tanning. I can understand picking up a side job to help keep the refrigerator full and utility bills paid (if you live off campus), but students are working 40 hour weeks, resulting in, i swear to god i've heard this.."I don't have time for school, i have to work!!" Is our country and its citizens so obsessed with making money to blow on beer, weed, food that we forget that taking six credits a semester is going to keep your ass here longer? I'm on pace to graduate in four-years, and have never worked here. I couldn't do it, but then again, don't believe everyone who tells you they can. Sure, they are making money, but they're taking 4 classes and failing 2 of them. As far as the surrounding area of Long Branch, its residents despise the existence of Monmouth University. The school will never develop the way it wishes too, and off campus parties are usually called in to the station as the DJ equipment is going INTO the house. Students are given no respect, although for the aforementioned listed reasons, I'm not entirely shocked. School pride is for shit...Its not like a Rutgers or Penn State when school pride is actually...well, school pride. Our homecoming celebration consists of about 4 days of hype which then involves everyone at the school getting blackout drunk and walking to the parking lot outside the football field. The game is 5th, maybe 15th priority, most don't even go. It's just an excuse to get fucked up, receiving the same treatment as Cinco de Mayo or St. Patrick's Day. In all honesty, the subterfuge of trustworthy, honest, true friends took until the Spring semester of my Junior year for me to fully realize how much I truly dislike it at this school. It has contributed to a lot of recent anxiety problems for myself, which have since subsided since I finally got out of there this year. Fortunately though, I have met some people that I can vibe out and realize that they aren't just acting a certain way because certain people are around -- the most common trait at Monmouth. It is so absurd in that sense that you could be having an honest heartfelt conversation with someone, and one of your "boys" (and i mean those quotation marks to the highest degree) comes over and the whole atmosphere changes. - - Dining Hall food wasn't half bad, and life gets a lot simpler once you live off campus. Overall I'd give Academics a 7/10, only because they don't offer enough classes Atmosphere I'll give a 7/10, right by the beach and the area is really navigable Social standpoint I'll give a suck/10, obviously if you've read this you know its my biggest complaint, as well as one of the biggest from others. Fake, spoiled, immature are only some of the words that describe a large percent (upper 80's) of the school's population.
After my first year I thought that this stuff was entirely untrue, but after three years living here, pretty much all of those sentiments are accurate. There's no sense of camaraderie among the people you meet, I'm almost certain the friends made at Monmouth rarely stay so for very long after graduation. Everyone is very concerned about looking out for themselves only.. The guys want to be the biggest badasses around, and the girls only go after frat boys or athletes. This is completely expected and, unfortunately, accepted from our society, and I'm not complaining about that, what is appalling is how obvious each student makes it. Every relationship you develop will not be on a personal level, but how well you aide the other's habit. Drugs are incredibly abundant in addition to egos and yes, of course, guidos.
Full of "guidos", not as big of a party school as advertised to high school kids. The majority of people are spoiled brats who can't do anything for themselves.

the best thing about monmouth is it's campus. it's what attracted me the most. i fell in love with it when i came in high school. the one thing i'd change is the food system. we are college kids. we stay up late and we wanna eat late. it'd be better to eat dining hall food then nellys late at night. it could help us save money. we pay so much money for the dining hall, and i'm furious with the system. nothing it open late at all and it's not fair. when i tell people i go to monmouth, they're like "where's that" i tell them it's by the jersey shore, and then I get an "oh." when I'm on campus, I spend most of my time in the dorm buildings. I made alot of friends both on and off campus but it's easier to party on campus. if only monmouth cops and ra's weren't so strict, we could have alot more fun. people around the town hate us students so much. they call the cops, which is understandable, but it makes it that much harder to live off campus. Administration is good. I think that the administration really show how much they care about the students, but of course there's an exception to some administration that I've come across. I feel like a student, where as my friends who go to big schools like Ruters and UCONN are just numbers. I like that student-teacher relationship. No school pride, I don't care what anyone says. My high school had more school pride and it was so much smaller (obviously). i was pumped my first football game and when I realized that NOBODY got up and cheered I was so upset. (people get up and cheer only when the team makes a play). i don't know, I just think our school has no school pride really. It's so clicky and separated but that's not to blame monmouth, it's to blame the students.
Walked onto monmouth campus day 1 freshman year. first question i was asked "so what sport do oyu play?" (im black, so I get that alot but have learned to deal with it). Yea, I think Monmouth Campus can be a little bit racist. It's so separated at monmouth. It's athletes (and even that is broken down further--football players; black and white then it's baseball- then don't seem to like blacks too much then it's track-where everyone gets along just fine, then it's sorority girls (and even they can't stand each other-- d phi e doesn't like theta phi alpha because one claims to be hotter than the other) it's ridiculous and the fraternity boys, they're guys, they all seem to get along pretty well, then it's the social outcasts, black kids sit together spanish kids sit together, then it's everyone else. Why does any of this matter? I don't know.
yes. when i first came to monmouth i was so surprised at the little bit of people that stay over the weekends. it's depressing. it could be so much fun over the weekends too.
Like I said, it like the fact that monmouth is small enough where professors know your name and you can have that relationship with a teacher rather than just being a number. I like the classes at monmouth, however I'm sick of being babied by professors. I think that since we are paying $32,000 annually to attend the University, we should be able to decide whether or not we want to attend class. To have a limit as to how many classes we are allowed to miss is ridiculous. I don't think it's fair. If I can pass a class without going to a single class, that should be for me to decide. We are old enough to realize when it's a necessity to attend class or not, and sometimes, situations demand that we skip class.
Greek life is pretty big, but it's not like OMG IF I DONT GET IN HERE IM GONNA BE A NOBODY. Everyone is segregated in it's own way. I don't like the social aspect of monmouth really. i'm an african american student who wants to go greek but can't, because monmouth nuiversity has ZERO blak greek life on campus. SAD. I usually find myself leaving campus late at night. There's never anything goin on, so me and my girl friends hop in a car and drive, seaside, up north, anywhere off campus. The campus is kinda boring. I liked last year '06 homecoming because the cops allowed us to drink in the parking lot but it was a very controlled and supervised environment. It gave the underage people a chance to feel mature. This past year was more strict and not nearly as fun. Saturday nights, we usually drink, but if we don't we will go bowling or go play on the beach or play man hunt (more of those things we did drunkenly, but it's still fun).

Monmouth is a small school with small class sizes which makes for a nice individualized experience for each student. One thing I would change would be to make the dining hall hours accommodating. Its disappointing for someone who takes night classes ending at 8 not to be able to eat at the dining hall.
Students often dress up for class. Many students are from NJ.
The dining hall food is atrocious! Hours are horrible and the dining hall is the only option for food on the weekends.
All my professors knew my name within the first week. I am an Art and Elementary Ed major and the art department is amazing.
Athletic events aren't that popular. Fraternities and sororities are very popular at Monmouth. You'll be spending Saturday night alone if you don't go out to a party.
Overpopulated with preppy rich who get what they want

The size is ideal. People question where monmouth is, to which my reply is 5 minutes from the beach. Not really a college town.
The student body is primarily located throughout NJ
The cops suck
Classes are small and relatively difficult. You get out of the school as much as you put in
A lot of parties
Fun, and people who enjoy the beach

I think the school is a great size with a great location, in between both Phila and NYC (about 1.5 hours either way). The relationship among teachers and students is what you make. I have met some professors who I consider friends and life long mentors. The repuation and ranking of the school is increasing dramactically. The surrounding town(s) include a mall, the beach (about a mile), and everything you need is within driving distance. Most frquent complaints on campus are the dining facility, which I would say have there good days and others are just average. Overall, though I thought it was fine. The other thing was a complaint was the price of the school. Although there are many other private schools that are more expensive, the endowment is not huge and so only a portion of tuition is usually offered in financial aid packages. I recommend becoming an RA so that you do not have to pay room or board....huge savings.
We have a ton of classes on the campus relative to the amount of students on campus. Primarily people on campus are white and from NJ but that is changing at a good rate. most students are liberal (democrats) in their political feelings. Students wear anything they want to class. Some wear pajamas while others dress to the nines.
I think it is a great school, but like anywhere it is what you make it. It takes getting involved anf talking to people to make it happen. Monmouth provides the tools you just have to use them. I could not have been happier.
Some of them are. Some people have money but you would never know it. There are just some really great people there. IT's like anywhere else you like some and not others.
I think there are some great programs, business in my opinion being the best! Our facilities are also very good. We have student run radio and tv stations and two 24 hour computer labs, a gorgeous library, and Wilson Hall (where Annie was filmed) is a beautiful building. We have a some great classes from an entrepreneurship class to a coaching and team development quiz.
Fraternities are the main party holders. However, a ton happens across campus as well. The surrounding towns have gotten stricter on off-campus drinking. There is always something going on you just have to ask. People are up almost all hours of the night. I personally went bowling on thursday nights.
Rich kids, stuck-up, Uggs wearers, hot girls, beach lovers
