Monroe College strongly encourages students to extend their learning experience beyond the classroom. Through academic, social and cultural groups and activities, students have ample opportunity to join organizations that interest them, support causes they believe in, or just have some good, old-fashioned fun with a diverse group of their peers. Being a part of the Monroe community means getting involved and developing the leadership skills that will serve students well in today's competitive career market.
Monroe College's two campuses offer the best of both worlds: an idyllic, quiet, suburban campus in New Rochelle and a bustling, lively urban campus in the Bronx. Both are a 30 minute train ride to Grand Central Terminal. New York City is home to some of the world's best cultural offerings and the media and business capital of America. Monroe plans and sponsors regular trips to take advantage of all that New York City has to offer.
Living on campus is an exciting way to enjoy college and bond with ones peers and classmates. Monroe's residence life program offers several options for staying on the New Rochelle campus and making college a 24-7 experience.
The Student Services Office is the hub of campus life at Monroe and provides students with advisory services, resources and other tools they need to adjust to college life and ensure that they have a valuable experience at Monroe. Each student is assigned a Student Services counselor according to their major. Counselors are always available to address academic or personal concerns, with no appointment necessary.
