  • 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.

Bolshoi Ballet: Ivan the Terrible (Broadcast in HD)

Ivan the Terrible is a work in the true Bolshoi style. Yuri Grigorovich’s powerful and fascinating epic dramatizes Ivan the Terrible’s controversial reign, and portrays events in 16th‐century Russia in visually stunning scenes. His choreography, full of vigor, strength and wild jumps, also includes great grace and fragility in the female roles. Sensitive classical and powerful character dance blend to create a lyrical epic, rich in the colors of medieval Russia.

Roger McGuinn

Roger McGuinn

As the founder of the Byrds, Roger McGuinn is firmly established as an indisputable industry icon. From his signature 12 string Rickenbacker sound, to his instantly recognizable vocals on hits like Turn, Turn, Turn, Eight Miles High and Mr. Tambourine Man, McGuinn didn’t just make music; he made history. He was on the leading edge, combining the rock beat of the Beatles with the folk sensibilities of Bob Dylan, to create the genre known as “folk-rock.” Roger’s solo career began in 1973 and has yielded 10 albums, a Grammy nomination, and extensive touring and performing for enthralled audiences ever since.
