Swollen glands. Strep test negative. Getting tested for Mono. Further investigations?

Hi my 20 year old daughter has had what she thought was swollen glands(with no pain) for the past 3 weeks.. She went to her college health services last week and was given a strep test which came back negative. The nurse who saw her said she was surprised how swollen her tonsils were. A few days later she started with symptons of a cold , chills, body aches but no fever (however she says she feels feverish). She then went to a walk in clinic who told her that her lymph nodes are swollen and they are testing her for mono. Is there anything else that we should be having her tested for.
