  • The dorms are great. Everyone is friendly and respectful. The buildings are pretty much always clean and if everyone does their part around the building, dorm life goes very smoothly.…

  • Monmouth is intersected by a road, but there's an underground tunnel. It's strange at first, but you get used to it. Campus life is on one side, Academic on…

  • Dorming is great. Throughout the week each building is busy with students passing back and forth through the entrances and exits. On the weekends, it is quiet during the day,…

    The dining hall and student center are the two places for food on campus. The food itself is pretty good overall but eventually you get sick of it especially if you are a picky eater. They also have a late night snack place open that is amazing for midnight cravings! Just watch out for that Freshman 15!

    The dining hall is okay there is a lot of variation but it gets old fast. There is also the student center which is pretty good. They are opening a jersey mikes sub restaurant in there this fall.

    The dining hall is generally not too crowded, unless it's towards the night. The food is decent and the staff are very friendly. The student center is also packed at any given hour with students, as is Java CIty with students going for their caffeine fill.

    The dining hall is AMAZING. We call it Club Magill because, during dinner, girls and guys dress up like they're going to the club. Not everyone, but enough for it to get that name. Either way, the food is delicious and there's several stations ranging from sandwiches to salads, grilled food to quick and easy. There's even a waffle station! You will never be able to eat the way you do at Monmouth unless you are on a cruise - it's that serious. The Student Center also provides great food, but that will come off of your declining balance that is small and fleeting, but comes with your food plan. Every on-campus resident must have a food plan. The Student Center and Dining Hall are on the Academic side of campus, while The Underground Cafe is on the Dorm-side. This also takes the declining balance and has less healthy, but delicious, options. You can find this in Elmwood Hall.

    The food at Monmouth University is pretty good. Aside from the occasional not so great meal, everything is pretty tasty. There are many options to choose from so you do not feel obligated to just one thing. Also, Java City, the on campus coffee shop, really comes in handy!

    One way to describe Monmouth's dining is that they keep it to the basics. But they are extremely good at what they make, you'll get your usual pizza, fries, chicken, etc. The food is very good, there is the choice of the salad bar, too. Also, every Sunday, the weekend workers put a Cajun mix on some classics!

    It's the typical college dining hall at Monmouth, buffet style always offered along with sandwich stations and desserts. Also on campus is a pricey little coffee shop, a late night snack stop, and a bagel shop.

    There are a good number of fraternities and sororities on campus. It makes up a huge part of the student body but if Greek Life isn't your thing it's perfectly fine and you'll still fit in! They also have parties that many people go to each night.

    Without a doubt the staple of social life on campus. The Greek community hosts plenty of events/activities that are enjoyed by everyone and they do a multitude of good for the surrounding area.

    I was not involved in Greek Life, however, it is a HUGE part of Monmouth. You WILL make friends with frat bros, or soror sisters. You WILL go to a frat house party.

    Greek life is a major part of Monmouth. It seems as though every other person walking is walking proudly in letters. While it is not necessary to join, it is a very easy and helpful way to meet new people and to experience new opportunities in terms of community service and involvement with a philanthropy.

    Yes there are about 10 Fraternities and Sororities on campus, but Monmouth does not have houses on campus

    When walking around campus, it seems as if everyone is in a fraternity or sorority. However, that's not true. Monmouth does not provide greek housing.
