New Jersey is more than the birthplace of Bruce Springsteen and the threshold of New York City and Philadelphia – the state is packed with bustling cities, rustic farming communities, towering mountains, and azure ocean beaches. Exciting adventures are mere footsteps from Monmouth University’s campus.
The maritime climate gives the Monmouth University campus weather the best of both worlds – warm summer sun perfect for beach days gives way to cooler days that offer opportunities for winter recreation.
While helpful, a car isn’t essential to travel to and from Monmouth University. America’s most extensive transportation network crosses New Jersey, allowing easy access to major cities like New York and Philadelphia and regional airports by train, ferry, and bus.
