WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ - Monmouth University’s Student Government Association hosted a one-day community service project designed to incorporate the services of Monmouth University students to the needs of the local community on October 9.  Approximately 200 Monmouth students spent the day performing service projects, such as painting, cleaning, clearing brush, or visiting senior citizen centers, and working with school children, as a way to express their gratitude to the surrounding communities for their support and allegiance to Monmouth University.
