4 College Junior

Party Scene: Whitesell has the best parties and the best tenants.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Meet a lot of friends, but bad roommates can be a pain.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Houses fill up fast, and Homestead is terrible.

2 College Junior

Local Area: There's not a lot to do, but they love the students.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: it's about 50/50 on good and bad teachers.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's okay, probably does the job.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Koyote's is the place to be, best place in town.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Have measures in place to ensure people feel safe.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: The one frat is ridiculous, it's almost a joke.

College Junior

Athletics: I have never been to a sports game because that does not interest me, but the campus gym (health and wellness center) is AMAZING

5 College Junior

Academics: Many outstanding professor, but also many mediocre professors. I suggest checking out Rate My Professors before registering for classes

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Although they shouldn't be, many of the scholarships are need based... I think that scholarships should be based on academic merit. Because according to my FAFSA I don't "need" any scholarships, I received a very small scholarship even though I have a 3.9 cumulative GPA

Majors: VCD is a great major and something that WOU takes a lot of pride in. It's a new program with growing opportunities IF YOU WORK FOR THEM

Administration: don't really have much to say. Most professors do take attendance, however, so if you like to skip class- I don't recommend WOU

Campus Housing: The reason I am giving WOU Housing this rating is because of the unique experience I had with the roommate selection process... I'm sure there are other students might have had better experiences than I did (at least I hope), but they never even gave me the opportunity to fill out the questionnaire to determine who would be a good fit for me, and as a result, I lived with someone who not only did I have nothing in common with, but we did not get along and she had a medical issue that interfered with one of MY medical issues and I was rushed to the hospital on life-support due to not being informed of her prior medical issue...

Off-Campus Housing: In comparison to neighboring university cities (Corvallis, Salem, etc.) Monmouth cannot be beat as far as affordability goes. Although it can be tough to find a place, once you do- it's worth the trouble

Campus Food: I do not eat on campus.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is basically non-existent here, and the two chapters there are are looked down upon by Non-Greeks.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am in the Honors Program. I enjoy the small classes and the dedication to education among fellow Honors students and Honors professors, but the workload is very high.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been no instances of crime or safety issues on campus that I am aware of.

3 College Freshman

Administration: This being a dry campus leads to very strict policies on drug and alcohol consumption and storage on campus. Other than that, there are not many big issues the administration needs to address.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Monmouth is a small community, and with that comes a lack of great variety of commercial entities. Due to this, there are a number of off-campus options, but not a lot. The cost is average, as most options are chains. There is one particular restaurant on the edge of campus that is very affordable and convenient.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Many students are recruited to participate in varsity athletics. The teams perform well, being competitive in their league. Other students get excited about and attend important home games.
