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

The cost of the tuition, because it is difficult to afford from my middle to lower-middle class position.

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

To Students: Make sure you choose the college that suits your personality, and get involved as much as possible on campus. This is expecially important even if you decide to commute. To Parents: Don't force your child to go to a school that you want he or she to go to. Make sure the school they choose is their own choice, but keep the financials in mind.

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

Pick a school based on your major, the size and the inital feel for it when you visit. College is what you make of it. If you choose to stay home and not make friends or be to shy and quiet your most likely not going to have fun. GET INVOLVED

What's unique about your campus?

It is not too big where no one know you and not too little that there is nothing to do. There are many places to go off campus. The class size is small so teachers know who you are.

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

I believe that above all, you should go with your heart. I applied to about four schools, and the one I chose in the end was the most expensive, but upon going on a tour of the school, I felt that this is where I would feel the most comfotable. If you do not feel comfortable and do not see yourself being able to succeed in that environment, then eliminate that from your choice because you probably will not last long if you cannot picture yourself liking it there. Do not make your decision on family/significant others. To make the most out of your college experience, get involved. Participate in class and get to know your peers. These may be people you will have in your life for a long time. Also, academics come first, but become part of a club or social organization. Find people who have the same interests as you, and your college experience will completely be fulfilled. You will people you can never imagine your life without. Sooner or later, you will look back and wonder where all of the time went. So take advantage of your opportunities and do what's right for you.

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

During your first year, you are the last one's to pick classes so you mostly have early classes.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A motivated student who puts academics first, and enjoys learning in a close teacher-student environment. Classes are on a very personal and small level so be ready to participate if you want a good grade.

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?

I think that it is essntial to be involed with the school activities. If not it can get pretty boring for your social life.

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!

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

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.

Carissa

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

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.
