Sarah Houston '14
Assistant Director of Admission
My territories and responsibilities
I work with students in the local surrounding counties and the Quad City area along with Kansas and Nebraska. More specifically, Henderson, Knox, Mercer, Rock Island and Warren counties! You will often find me on and off campus visiting with families, visiting high schools and attending college fairs. I am here to assist students and their families throughout the admission and financial aid process. Contact me whenever you have questions!
Food/Place to eat:
Ribs are my absolute favorite food, especially from Famous Daves. However, you can never go wrong with Mexican food. Los Ranchitos is my favorite in Monmouth.
Way to have fun:
I love spending time with friends and family!
As a prospective student, I visited many colleges. However, the way I felt at Monmouth, was different than how I felt at any other college. I loved how welcoming everyone was and how I felt like part of the college before I was even a student. As a student, Monmouth was a second home. Monmouth College allowed me to explore multiple interests academically and socially. The faculty members gave each student one-on-one assistance that would help each of us succeed and help find our passion.
The opportunities to get involved are endless. The friends that I have made are ones that will last a lifetime. Through classes, sporting events, organizations, and everyday activities, it is so easy to meet people at Monmouth who soon become your second family! My four years as a student flew by. So, when I was given the opportunity to work here as an Admission Counselor, I was thrilled! I am excited to help recruit future Fighting Scots.
Ask me about the time:
I got woken up by bagpipes in my dorm room at 7am.
