Monmouth University Reviews
Monmouth University needs a new and improved First Year Advising and new advising all together. They dont help you, they waste your time and money. I took 3 classes instead of 2 for this specific requirement. Why didnt anyone tell me this information? They want your money, thats all it has ever been about. Since I wasnt sure what I wanted to do yet, I went in undeclared. Now, you know you get 20 free elective credits to take anything you want? Those credits that I could have minored with were wasted on Calculus, Philosophy and some other classes. If I didnt take Summer classes, I would be behind on graduating. Every university pulls you in and keeps you there. They dont want to let you go, thats why they fail you. They have masters programs to keep you paying their salary. The way the curriculum is set up has to change. Everyone hates it, I dont know one person who majors in Nursing and wants to take piano or an Accountant wanting to take Art. The way this university runs things is so bizzare and so useless to all of the students. 33 credits of General Education, thats a full year of only Gen Eds! Are we back in highschool, because I thought we were past this. People say college is to make you well-rounded. Yes, but that doesnt mean you take classes you have no need for. Why dont you focus on getting students out of school faster instead of sucking them dry? I know how Universities work. I said it before, its a business and one day, people are going to realize they cant spend 70-100k a year at Monmouth. Now what?
Monmouth University is a great university in New Jersey. The classes are small and interactive, which creates great connections with professors and students. As you continue to get into your major classes it is more likely the same students will be in your classes and this makes it easier to form study groups and to help teach each other and learn from each other.
I have had a great undergraduate experience at Monmouth University while studying political science. The one factor that truly made a difference in my undergraduate experience was the professors in political science that have helped me further my knowledge and love of politics while studying. All classes had worthwhile assignments that I truly enjoyed completing. The professors really care about their students success. This was probably the most impactful aspect of studying at Monmouth and contributed to my positive experience. However, the administration and financial offices are the same as every other school. There are ample amounts of activities, and a decent Greek life program for a small school. As a commuter student, I had some problems with parking so for the first few weeks be sure to arrive early. Overall, I had a great experience at Monmouth.
My experience at Monmouth was amazing and I couldn't feel more prepared to attend graduate school in May. Monmouth has an amazing support system in preparing it's students to be very successful in life and I am very grateful for the support that I have received from my advisors and career services. Every person who works for Monmouth wants to see it's individuals succeed and I feel like that's what made Monmouth so special for me!
