What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Get involved is the best thing I've ever done. By getting involved at Monmouth University, more and more other students as well as the faculty get to know you. Because of that, it is easier to receive help when you need it and its the college experience is so much better in the long run by knowing more people and not just sitting in the dorm room.
Joanna from Staten Island, NY
The advice I would give, to not only students who want to attend MU but to all prospective students, is that college is what you make of it. Get involved and take advantage of everything your school offers you! Understand that all first-year students go through difficult times, but you can do it!
Stefania from Matawan, NJ
Relax and let your heart make the choice for you.
Katelyn from Manville, NJ
If you come to Monmouth be sure to take full advantage of everything that is offered. Talk to professors during their office hours. Ask the writing center to review your papers. Attend campus events. Watch the MU Hawks fly to victory in sports. Walk through the beautiful campus on a nice day.
Rachel
Always be open minded and willing to try new things. There are plenty of clubs and activities on campus where you can meet tons of new friends! So get out there and see what they have to offer, I can promise you, it will truly be worth it!
Kelly from Edison, NJ
Come to Monmouth, get involved, and make friends. If you do that, you'll have a great college experience.
Matthew-Donald from Niantic, CT
Fill out your FAFSA as early as possible and gain a rapport with the Bursar and Financial Aid offices. Wilson Hall will be your friend. Also, take advantage of the career counseling so as not to become a super senior, which is a notorious title on MU campus. Also, get involved in the surrounding community. Once you integrate, definitely look into becoming a Resident Assistant to help with housing costs and be a leader on campus.
Justin from Gibbstown, NJ
Come to Monmouth University expecting to learn. The professors jump right into the subject matter and it is a very steady pace.
Isis from Old Bridge, NJ
Although the University is private, and quite expensive, it is worth every dime! Monmouth does it's best to act as a stepping stone for it's students. The tools the equip us with serve as the foundation we need in order to obtain that degree and begin our careers. If you are interested in the school, but the price isn't in your budget, check out what type of funding the school has to offer. My dream has been filled because of the funding the school and other grant donors were able to give me!
Audra from North Middletown, NJ
Get involved. Stay busy and active, and know your limits. If you need to study more, study more. If you need to hang out with friends more, do so. Take care of yourself and learn about your resources. (And if you choose to attend Monmouth, don't hesitate to reach out to your peers (myself included) or your professors. They're there to help!)
