  • Letter to Students in Recovery

    Dear Student in Recovery,

    We would like to welcome you to Monmouth University! You should be proud of yourself for getting to college and achieving a goal of yours that you once may have thought impossible. We know it has not been easy and you have probably been working hard at your recovery every day. You probably have questions about how you will handle certain situations, including meeting new people and whether or not to disclose your recovery, attending parties, and juggling your recovery with new academic responsibilities. Monmouth University has many resources to help you answer these questions and support you in your transition to college life. 

    Students in Recovery Club

    Yes, that's right, we have a collegiate recovery scene at Monmouth University, and it's growing! Studies tell us that students in recovery benefit greatly from participation in such a club; are more likely to graduate, have a higher GPA and it reduces rates of relapse. So, consider joining our Students in Recovery Club. We have weekly meetings, host events, plan fun activities and do some advocacy work too. Come check us out! Contact sschaad@monmouth.edu to learn more.
