4 College Senior

Facilities: The facilities are okay...there are a ton of places to hang out and study. Also, the student center and the library is very accessible and easy to get around.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Monmouth University is pretty much right on the beach. Also, since we're in Long Branch, we're right by Pier Village. They have a ton of great restaurants and shopping!

4 College Junior

Majors: Easy! Write a good essay and set up an interview

Overall Experience: At first, I wanted to transfer. I do not party because they are grimy and the people are not my type of person. If you are more artsy, have unique views on movies/music/books/ or were independent and know how to live without your parents, maybe rethink this school. The people are most definitely all Jersey homebody typical non-original people. But the teachers are SO great, the education is zoo fantastic that I am happy that I stayed. It is worth it if you do not care about being unique or meeting diverse people.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options but you must drive.

1 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I got two drinking tickets my freshman year, paid $1,000+ etc. and I am not a partier. BAD

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Pretty average. For freshman: try for laurel anything but elmwood. For sophomores: redwood or those types of buildings are the best.

2 College Junior

Diversity: Black kids and white kids hang out together, especially amongst the athletes. This is nothing special though in 2014 obviously, so besides that everyone is pretty homogenous. Every girl has long hair, alex + ahi bracelets, riding boots, leggings, and a north face on at all times and the guys are just as predictable. Not the school to go to if you are unique...this was the hardest part of adjusting to monmouth for me.

5 College Junior

Academics: I am getting a fantastic education, am learning how to get a job in my field, all from very knowledgable and qualified professors.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: It gets very repetitive, but there is something for everyone. The hot chocolate, waffles, baked potatoes, turkey burgers, and fish dishes are the best.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Hazing, gross parties, just ew.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Many people receive scholarships from the school.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live in the off campus apartments in Pier Village. They are great and in a very busy, fun area.

Athletics: There is a pool and a pretty good but small gym anyone can use. The MAC is very up to date and nice. There are also free fitness classes for students.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: I would not ever feel unsafe walking around on campus, but my drink was spiked at a frat party my first semester of my freshman year. I never went to one again and I as lucky to make it into a cab and home until the drugs took full effect...scary.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have an internship at a local non-profit, the pay is bad but it is really great experience and I am getting credit!

5 College Junior

Majors: I am a double major in Sociology and Political Science, with a minor in communications. One thing I will say abut Monmouth is that above everything the academics really are great. I have learned so much.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I live in off campus housing and there is plenty of awesome food around. The best being Jr's with a wide variety of not too terrible meals. There open really late and though they are a little pricy they are pretty awesome. There is surf taco as well and several pizzerias. Fast food chains are always an option as well and I know McDonalds after 1am sells Big Macs for a dollar to MU students if your about that life.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I honestly never have had problems with parking but then again I don't mind walking. The only problem with parking is knowing where to park and where not to. MU isnt too clear about that and sometime it makes no sense but what can you do.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school is majority white. It's the typical white girl who is trying to outpretty the other white girl when at the end they all look the same. The typical white jock whose always wearing some type of athletic gear.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Only reason why I don't give it an excellent is because my advisor wasn't as knowledgable as he should be.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The Psychology Undergraduate Program I'd say is phenomenal.

Academics: Speaking for the psychology program Id say MU has one of the best around. It's not like we're learning crap and getting through college, psych students actually work hard and we learn really great useful stuff. The professors though some can be boring or demanding overall work really hard and care about their students. The academics I say is worth the money just work hard and don't be stupid.

Off-Campus Housing: I transferred and lived in the University Bluffs formally known as the Diplomats or "Dips". Monmouth owns this complex and the apartments at Pier Village. The Bluffs are one room two student apartments. Monmouth does not provide anything besides the very basic furniture such as desk, table, and chairs. Everything else one must bring. The Bluffs are basically beach apartments and although I heard many complaints of mildew and mold mine was fine. Pier Village is more pricer and much nicer. Pier Village are actual apartments with two rooms four per apartment. If you can afford it I'd say Pier Village but i'd take the bluffs any day. 5 minute drive to campus.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: From what I have heard the shuttles are terrible. They tend to run on there own time and if there is bad weather they will not work even if classes are still on, failing to advise the students as they wait. The public transportation is all over the place (again this is what I hear) constantly changing year round.
