5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love the academics on campus. I learn the best here

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The schoool promotes safety frequently

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I think the biggest sport at Monmouth is definitely Basketball.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Monmouth University is a great college. It is very small and some people do not like that but it makes everything more hands on and personal.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's great, but not the best. Many people are pressured to join Greek life or a sports team to gain access to the most parties. With the cops of the town being very strict with students, a lot of parties can be exclusive to Greek life or sports. There are a lot of mixers. However, the frats do throw open parties and they can be a lot of fun. Although there are mixers, there's a chance that there's also an open party going on. Many students will see familiar faces at parties and that's what makes it more fun and comfortable to go out. Frat and sports parties are definitely the best, and when the weather gets warm out, day drinks are the best part about Monmouth.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Nightlife at Monmouth might be the most ideal, especially when you're 21. The surrounding areas are very strict with college students partying, so a fake is pointless because many bars deny students underage and confiscate ther fakes. However, once you're 21 at Monmouth, your transition from frat parties to the bars/clubs is amazing. From the proximity to all the bars and clubs at the Jersey Shore to NYC & Philly to Atlantic City, the options are endless. Many of the 21 year olds travel to AC for their Greek formals or for birthday celebrations. Not many people go to Philadelphia or NYC, but it is an easy hour ride to access both. The jersey shore itself has the best bars and clubs, and 21 year olds at Monmouth routinely attend.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics at Monmouth are great. I believe I'm getting my money's worth for my education. I'm a business major so naturally I'm studying in the business school. I have had many professors who are well knowledged and experienced in what they are teaching. Professors are passionate about what they teach as they could go on and on about the topic their teaching. The curriculum is very strict and structured. People must take certain classes before others, a certain amount of credits every semester, and registering for classes as a business student can be difficult. The business program at Monmouth is well known and many students are in it. Therefore, registering for classes can be difficult as they fill up pretty fast. The workload really depends on the professor you have, some are decent and some are more. People also choose to study abroad for a semester or summer to get the college experience at a different country.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: If anyone asked me what I didn't like about my school, it'd be the issue with diversity. There is absolutely no diversity on this campus as most people are conservative republicans, white, and wealthy. Many people are also split into Greeks and sports, causing a divide on campus. I believe there would be more social stimulation on campus if there was a higher degree of diversity. It's hard to experience different cultures and backgrounds as it is a homogenous student body.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: With a large population of students in Greek life and sports, many of them partake in alcohol and drug activities at parties, such as drinking and smoking. The campus is strict with it and if you're caught, they treat alcohol violations like a burglary, over dramatic and everything. No one is peer pressured to do anything, just a lot of people partake in it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Monmouth is located in a wealthy, suburban town. The campus has its own police station with policemen. There are emergency phones all over campus to contact the university police station in case students do not feel safe on campus for whatever reason. There is not much crime on campus and people generally feel safe all the time.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses and professors at this school are strongly focused on what you study in. Monmouth doesn't really offer fun, outgoing classes, but they offer many courses to help you gain the most within your program. Classes are small so no large lecture halls with teaching assistants. Most professors are friendly, want to see you succeed, always willing to help, and know what they're talking about. Professors at Monmouth are highly well experienced and knowledged in the field they teach.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career services has a group of vibrant, positive workers that make it so easy to communicate to them and ask for help for internships and jobs. I have been there to ask for recommendations for where to get internships and assessments to help me me figure out which program would fit best for me. They are so friendly and make asking for help so easy. It's easy to access and you can pretty much walk in and talk to someone. Also, career services sends out an email every month with hiring jobs and internships around the area.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing on campus is nothing special at Monmouth. It's nothing compared to the ones at huge schools with 20 floors, an arcade, pool, & etc. On campus living is average, people get a decent sized room with their room. You're either stuck with a suite or a regular room with your roommate. Once you're an upperclassmen, you have options of living in the on campus or off campus apartments. They come with your own living room, kitchen space, bathroom, and rooms for you and your roommates. Nothing out of the ordinary, just average.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Monmouth is huge. So huge that people are pressured to join an organization to get the best of Monmouth. With the school being small, people see Greek life as a different unit on campus. People believe they are snobby and are only good for the parties. Although I'm not in an organization, some of my closest friends are in Greek organizations and they are great people. Greek life throws down a lot of parties here, both fraternities and sororities.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Recently, athletics at Monmouth University have thrived and brought together a new level of community throughout the campus. With the basketball team's major wins and overall success in the season, many students joined together and cheered them on at the home and away games. A year ago, school spirit was dead and non-existent on campus. However, in just a year, the basketball team brought together the school and unexpectedly brought a large amount of school spirit. However, the other athletic teams don't get as much attention as the basketball so the overall athetlics is average.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Monmouth is the best decision I've made when choosing a college. I knew I would not thrive at a large state school and being known as a number. I wanted more from my school where I'd be able to get involved and recognized, as well as having a sense of community around campus. I was hesitant at coming to Monmouth at first but it did not take me long to realize that this is the perfect school for me because it offered everything I needed. I'm currently a rising junior and it's unbelievable how quick time is flying by. I remember being a senior at my high school thinking about how I wanted to go away so far, go to a huge school, and be away from home. Although I received the opposite at Monmouth, it didn't take me long to also acknowledge the fact that I would not thrive being far from home, and being seen as only a number by many people. Monmouth is unique in a way, where you see at least one or two or more people you know on the way to class and back. The classes are small, 35 students per class at most. This means no teaching assistants or large lecture halls. Students are able to directly communicate and form strong relationships with their professors. The size of the campus allows easy walking to the dorms and university centers. Monmouth has a beautiful campus, a captivating location for prospective college students. Monmouth is a mile away from the beach, including access to NYC and Philadelphia which are only an hour away from campus. Monmouth has an ideal location on the map for every college student that wants to experience life outside campus. There are plenty of places to eat and go to off campus. Even the parties at Monmouth are unique: as a small university, a lot of people see similar faces at the frat and sports parties. This allows students to be comfortable with the parties they're at because of the familiar faces, whereas at large state schools, parties get over crowded with hundreds of strangers that make it less enjoyable.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy my classes . I love what I'm doing and learning. I like the small classes . I came in as a junior with my experience with the program's I have excelled in. I'm proud of that. Most of my professors a very been on ne'er standing and helpful. I rated overall experience as the okay because one if my teachers is moody and gets annoyed easily. That stresses me and can't hurt my creative flow

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy my classes and the few people I have connected with. I am a transfer student and commute so it,s a different experience for me then a student who came in as a freshman and lives at school. It's hard to make friends, most people have there clicks. My classes are good and I am learning a lot. I try very hard and do feel pressure at times. The campus is lovely , my professors range from very involved and concerned to disconnected and grouchy. I think I'm getting a good education, I just wish the tuition was less expensive so I could live at school. My gap is very high but I have not been considered for a higher scholarship. That is disappointing.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not really involved in sports so I can't write an in depth and accurate assesment
