Each year the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) asks students at hundreds of colleges and universities to reflect on the time they devote to various learning activities. The topics explored are linked by previous research on student success in college.
Results from NSSE can provide prospective students with insights into how they might learn and develop at a given college. To help in the college exploration process, NSSE developed A Pocket Guide to Choosing a College to provide students and parents key questions to ask during campus visits.
The responses you will read in this site were provided by 572 randomly selected Monmouth first-year students and graduate seniors on the 2011 NSSE survey. Results for all students who responded to the 2011 NSSE respondents are presented in parentheses for comparison purposes.
