What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
Monmouth College is one of the most welcoming colleges I know of. There are so many clubs and organizations you can join, and since there's a relatively small student body you can become very close to your classmates quickly. Also, the professors are all very friendly and personable and I've never been afraid to email them and ask them questions about a class.
Anna from Seaton, IL
Monmouth College is the best school I am attending. The reason why is because the other students are very friendly and the campus is small. The professor can actually help you out in one on one with any work I am having trouble with.
Manuel from Chicago, IL
I give Monmouth College a perfect score. The professors are willing to help you in any way they can. Everyone on campus has an amazing attitude.
