  • A Close-Knit Academic Community

    What separates MU from other institutions is the attention we give to each student. No large lecture halls. No classes taught by graduate students. Classes are small, and professors are proud to know their students by name. With such close interaction at MU, students have more opportunities to learn and succeed. They're conducting hands-on research with faculty. They're getting one-on-one counseling and support. They're networking. This is the Monmouth experience, where every student matters.

    Student-faculty ratio
    MU offers a hands-on learning environment that is conducive to strong student-faculty dialogue.
    Peer & faculty tutors
    Tutoring and Writing Services provides students with academic assistance in one-on-one and group sessions, completely free of charge.
    Student researchers
    Students have many opportunities to do research with faculty members. At MU, the percentage of students involved in research by their senior year is 10 percentage points above the national average. (SOURCE: 2012 National Survey of Student Engagement)
  • An Accessible, Convenient Destination

    Located in a safe, suburban area, MU is approximately one hour from both New York City and Philadelphia, making it easier for students to apply classroom learning to real-world experience. Our 156-acre campus, one of the most beautiful in New Jersey, is down the road from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, providing a natural classroom for students, as well as a fun, enriching college experience.

    Mile from the beach
    MU is conveniently located near the shore, with beachfront student housing available throughout the year for eligible students.
    Hour from New York City & Philadelphia
    MU students are only a 1 hour trip from internship opportunities, cultural events, and entertainment attractions in these major cities.
    Minutes from Asbury Park & Red Bank
    These local hot spots offer a variety of shops, restaurants, theaters, and live music venues. Students can also learn about the arts through music internships.

Gallery Exhibition: David H. Wells

Sep 2-Nov 14

Gallery Exhibition: David H. Wells

This exhibit examines the empty homes and foreclosed dreams littering the American landscape in the wake of the foreclosure crisis. After a house is foreclosed upon there is a fleeting moment when the ghosts of the one-time owners are all that is left – before the houses are cleaned and returned to the real estate market. The photographs in this exhibit capture the remaining signs of life that once filled these emptied houses bringing to light ideas about home, family and the American Dream. Opening Reception: Thursday, September 25, from 4:30 – 7pm
