Monmouth University is one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company profiles and recommends Monmouth University in the 2022 edition of its annual college guide, “The Best 387 Colleges,” which was released on Aug. 31. The Princeton Review has included Monmouth University in its lists of best colleges for the last 17 years.
Only about 14 percent of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, which is one of The Princeton Review’s most popular publications. The company chooses the colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences for this project.
Student feedback praises Monmouth University as being “great at opening new doors for students,” and also applauds the institution’s responsiveness, noting “if there is a problem, Monmouth staff is quick to resolve it and come to your aid.” The profile also lauds foresight with numerous career- and success-minded initiatives and resources, particularly when it comes to tutoring or writing services.
“We salute Monmouth University for its outstanding academics and we are truly pleased to recommend it to prospective applicants searching for their personal ‘best-fit’ college,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief and lead author of “The Best 387 Colleges.”
Additional student perspectives about finding a good fit include, “Greek life is the best experience of my college career. I was able to make amazing connections and develop leadership skills.” There are plenty of opportunities to connect with students outside of the classroom given that “people work out a lot” at facilities like “basketball courts, a swimming pool, and a bowling alley,” or just plain attend the athletic events, where there “is always a great, energized student crowd.” Of course, there’s far more than just athletics here, and as examples of how you can find “a club for most interests,” students list things from debate and model UN to the 5678 Dance Club, psychology club, and even a “student-run record label.”
