  • 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.

    MU offers a hands-on learning environment that is conducive to strong student-faculty dialogue.
    Peer & faculty tutors

  • 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.

Southside Johnny & The Poor Fools

Nov 14

Southside Johnny & The Poor Fools

Southside Johnny & The Poor Fools return to the Pollak Theatre for another riveting evening embarking on a stripped down journey through Johnny Lyon’s eclectic version of the Great American Songbook. Playing a wide range of music from Dylan, Mose Allison, Muddy Waters, NRBQ, Richard Thompson, Emmylou Harris, The Band, George Jones and more, The Poor Fools also dive into some of the Southside's Asbury Jukes material–revisiting some classics as well as the underperformed deep tracks. In this incarnation, musicians such as Jeff Kazee, John Conte, Tommy Byrnes, and Neal "The Dude" Pawley join Johnny for singing, playing, and having some fun on stage. It will be a loose mix of songs, stories and banter between the musicians and–hopefully–the audience. Opening Act: Bob Burger. All ticket holders will receive a free autographed poster signed by the artists after the show.
