Our Fall 2021 Issue

Just received my Monmouth magazine. Loved it! It’s a great product that reinforces the very best qualities of Monmouth and its brand!

Remembering “Hoss”

I was saddened to hear about the passing of John “Hoss” Kessler ’69. He was a great guy. Rest in peace, my friend.

As Paul (Doherty Jr. ’67, ’04HN) depicted in his article, John was such a genuinely nice person who would befriend others so easily. John and I were teammates on our junior high school team and remained friends and competitors throughout our intramural teams at Monmouth. We met twice in the school championship games, and I can still picture John pulling in a pass behind him with one hand. That was over 50 years ago too! Fortunately, we won both of those games and had a big laugh about his catch.

Praise for Monmouth’s Focus on First-Generation Student Services

I too was a first-generation graduate and stumbled along the way. Study abroad? Internships? If I only knew. Monmouth University was a great choice for me, and I’m happy to see there are programs to help students along the way
