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.

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.

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

The most important thing to keep in mind is to make sure the college campus is one in which you feel comfortable. The college is going to become your home for the next four years and if you arent comfortable, you'll be held back from doing everything that you are able to. And make sure that you get involved and get to know a variety of people.

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

i wish i knew how serious you freshman year academic choices can affect the rest of your college career.

What kind of person should attend this school?

people who are bubbly and enjoy getting to know people.

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

The best advice I could give to parents and students looking to find the right college includes a variety of things. First off, if location is an important factor, that should definitely be looked at. In addition to this, it is very important to look at the areas of study you are interested in and really research different colleges to see what they have to offer in terms of the academic education you would be recieving. My final word of advice for finding the right college, is to tour as many schools as possible. It is so very important to find a place that you feel comfortable and welcomed. To make the most of your college experience, the best advice I can give is to get involved in anything that interests you. It is a great way to meet new friends that have your same interests, and a few years down the line it also adds as a nice addition to your resume. My greatest memories of college come from the friends I made and the times I had in the clubs and activities I was involved in. It's such an important part of the experience.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who prefers smaller class sizes as opposed to lecture halls, who likes being involved on the campus in different activities, as well as having a feeling of community on the campus. Someone who is looking to have good relationships with professors and advisors because they are readily made available to help and offer advice. Sororities and Fraternities are a big part of campus like as well as sports. Music and the theater arts are growing as well if you are someone who is interested in those activities.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

A lack of communication between departments. I was a double major and I had a difficult time finding professors and advisors who were able to assist me in bridging the gap with my curriculum chart which was difficult at times. The best advice I can give for dealing with this situation is to keep track of your own academic chart and be on top of what classes you need to take without counting on an advisor to plan it out for you perfectly.

Wonderful, all the students are very friendly as well as the teachers too. The classroom sizes are perfect to were you can make new friends and the teacher still knows everyones name.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The beautiful campus, wonderful teachers/acamdics, and sports. Everything and everyone at Monmouth is always avaible to help you and set you in the right direction.

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

You have to be able to picture yourself at the school. It's nice when while your on a visit walking around you feel comfortable not even being there yet. Also, make sure that you look at the classroom sizes as well. Make sure that your comfortable with how big or how small they may be and that you are able to interact with your teachers as well.
