What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Monmouth U. has actually been the only college I wanted to attend since sophomore year in high school. It has been everything I had hoped and more. It is very well known as a top Business college, and I am and Business/Economics major. My department is excellent, as well as many other majors that are top tier, in my opinion.
