MONMOUTH, ILLINOIS (09/25/2019) — Emma Freyermuth, a student from Muscatine, Iowa, was accepted into and participated in Monmouth College's 2019 SOFIA program. SOFIA, or Summer Opportunities for Intellectual Activities, is an innovative three-week program that allows select new and returning students to conduct in-depth research and inquiry with Monmouth faculty. Students participated in a myriad of research-projects ranging from studying wolves at Isle Royal National Park to studying ancient Greek athletics.

Founded in 1853, Monmouth College is a nationally-ranked liberal-arts college. Affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the birthplace of the women's fraternity movement, the college offers 38 majors, 42 minors, 17 pre-professional tracks, and two innovative Triads in Global Food Security and Global Public Health.
