Points of Pride

The College of Saint Elizabeth is a close knit community that offers students the opportunity to impact lives; their own and those around them. As one alumna states, "My education at CSE gave me confidence in my own abilities and my understanding of different kinds of people...I learned to work hard there and I knew I could do what I wanted to do if I worked hard enough.” 

A CSE education provides rigorous instruction in the class room and meaningful educational opportunities to develop skills necessary to thrive in the work environment.  A 12:1 student /faculty ratio; recently renovated biology, chemistry and nutrition laboratories; and a re-designed general education curriculum support a strong interdisciplinary curriculum. Prestigious internship opportunities are available in New York City and in corporate and non-profit organizations in northern New Jersey.  Faculty are deeply committed to providing quality learning experience and are engaged in a wide range of scholarship in their disciplines.  

Cultural and artistic events bring an energy and vitality to the CSE campus. Whether celebrating international night with students from around the world; hosting authors such as Nobel Prize winning writer, Seamus Heaney, Mitch Albom, Mark Doty and Soledad O’Brien; or listening to prominent figures such as Victoria Kennedy, the campus embraces culture and diversity.
Ultimately, a CSE education is designed to empower students to become independent and effective critical thinkers, life-long learners, and socially conscious and self-reliant decision-makers in both their careers, and their lives.  

History
