Monmouth College, located in the eponymous Illinois city, bears a historic and treasured significance. Dating back nearly 160 years, the institution was among the nation's first to admit women from its start. This distinction shaped student living in both the short- and long-term as it increased the popularity of the college, its ability to expand and develop and its influence over the women's sorority movement, which remains strong in off campus housing. Monmouth was founded on April 18, 1853, a date that is still observed through the cancellation of classes and a day of celebration, dubbed "Founders Day."
Despite the continued reminders of the schools rich history, administrators have demonstrated an eye toward the future by redoubling efforts to improve student living at Monmouth College. In the past decade, the institution has completed a wide range of reconstruction and development projects on campus. Most recently, in 2008 the school finished the first phase of the April Zorn Memorial Stadium, which will enlarge seating capacity to 2,600 and include a state-of-the-art press box. Today, about 1,360 undergraduates find student housing on campus or in a Monmouth College apartment, and study a wide range of liberal arts disciplines.
Off campus housing at Monmouth College places students in a community of less than 10,000 residents. Many college apartments are located on the south side of campus, between East Broadway Street and East 1st Street, near the Italian Village and Maple City restaurants.
