"Monroe College offers a variety of majors for an affordable cost compared to most private colleges. I was able to graduate with my Bachelors Degree in Science of Public Health in 3 years, fully covered by grants & scholarships. The professors were respectful, offered help, and for the most part were able to teach their courses correctly. College advisors were helpful in finding the right courses for me and offering opportunities for work study, networking, post-graduate events, etc. The scheduling for the courses was very flexible, allowing me to work a full time job while attending. Monroe also has an internship requirement for graduation, leaving all students with something to have on their resume. Monroe has a cafeteria and a solid transportation system used to travel from the New Rochelle Campus and Bronx Campus. The areas for using Computers and doing work were always clean and quiet, allowing me to get my work done all the time. Due to COVID 19, I was able to experience the online version of Monroe and it helped my GPA a lot. Many of the courses had recordings of the class, so I was able to review material at any point in the semester. Also, being remote helped me focus on the professor/board and not get distracted by classmates. However, the curriculum was low level from my experience. Highschool was a lot harder for me but this is all subjective, some students might struggle with what I found easy. A majority of the content taught in my field is on quizlet, making it really easy to remember for exams. The only thing I found difficult was the Papers because they had long page requirements and a short amount of time to complete them. Overall, Monroe College is a great choice for people looking for a solid higher education at an affordable cost. I have not yet started my career but I believe Monroe has prepared me enough to be qualified for some entry level positions."

"this is a for profit school, they would lie to get me into Monroe college, so be careful the good reviews are most likely a lie. The admissions counselor told me that they had premed major three times, but when I finally started classes , he said NO premed. I wasted 2 semesters and credits would not transfer because the level of classes is very low. The professors there might not hold a degree because they curse and teach low level knowledge."

"Monroe College helped me to achieve my Bachelor's degree as an online student, without the option of attending school online I don't think I could have went back to school. The school always had events and formal gatherings to show their appreciation for their students hard work, they also had many different scholarships and discounts on tuition which helped on overall costs."

"Monroe College was very repeatable with a variety of students and professors from different parts of life. The college had all the recourse possible to make the journey a smooth one. The professors insure that you are very successful at the end of your journey. Everyday I walked on campus knowing that I was apart of something bigger than me and had all the professors in my corner waiting to help if needed. I would recommend Monroe College in a heartbeat to everyone that asked for my option. After graduating I have encouraged over three persons to attend the College and they are all currently enrolled and loving the experience so far. I highly recommend Monroe College both online and on campus."

"The most important benefit of studying at Monroe College is the ability to earn while I learn. Monroes online MBA program is designed so that I can earn an MBA while continuing to work full-time. Not only does Monroe offers on campus classes from three locations in New York, but also a blended schedule which allows me to take online classes for convenience . Furthermore, Monroe provides internship opportunities. This gives me the opportunity to integrate academic study with professional work experience in job placements that directly relate to my major and career interest. Secondly, Monroe Colleges advantage plan is very helpful to me. This is geared towards working adults, with a unique three semester academic calendar that would allow me to study year round and graduate in as few as 12 months instead of 16 months. To accommodate work and family, the program can be completed in a variety of convenient ways; online, on campus, or through a blended schedule. An education at Monroe College benefited me by providing a new study environment; new learning and teaching methods as well as academics that have a different perspective. It helped enhance my horizon and personal development. Monroe provides the opportunity for developing my ethical business management leadership skills. In addition, Monroes strategic location in New York City makes it easy to commute, learn and experience a new culture. Moreover, I experienced a new cultures with incredible new outlooks, customs and activities because of its classroom with students from over fifty different countries. Ultimately, Monroes beautiful campus is just minutes away from the biggest city in America. Learning from industry leaders and soaking up the citys art, history and culture, then its back to campus for quiet study time, beautiful dorms and friends from around the world."

"Monroe College is a wonderful school. The faculty and staff genuinely care about student sucess. They promote critical thinking and student empowerment through a curriculum that is geared towards imparting industry specific knowledge that is current and relevant to the job functions that students will undertake in their careers. Monroe fosters an environment that supports diversity and an inclusiveness that makes everyone feel like that are a part of a family. This is the culture at Monroe which is seen from the president's regular encouraging emails to the pleasant and courteous manner of all staff on campus. There are many clubs on campus as well that cultivate student leadership and community engagement. Personally, I feel that the staff and faculty are rooting for me and are in my corner, encouraging me every step of way. The professors are helpful and accessible, outside of regular class times, which makes a great difference to student morale. Monroe also has a student success center which offers one on one help to students in every subject area, reinforcing the commitment to providing a quality education and supporting students' success."
