When an international student makes the decision to study in New Jersey, they are sure to have their academic experience coupled with the beauty of New England towns as well as the contemporary, culturally rich cities of “The Garden State.” Situated between Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, and the Atlantic Ocean, New Jersey has a unique mixture of rural and quaint countryside with population-dense urban centers replete with all the trappings of cosmopolitan life. New Jersey may be the third smallest state in the nation, but it boasts the highest population density, making it a hotbed of culture and cultural exchange. The proximity to major metropolises like New York City and Philadelphia further presents the opportunity to experience the uniquely cosmopolitan cultural blend typical of the States in one of these archetypal American cities.

International students in New Jersey hoping to find some exciting things to do in their new location, it would be wise to check local advertisements and event calendars, as well as notifications of events taking place in nearby New York or Philadelphia. Students who study in New Jersey will not find a shortage of activities to enjoy during their free time with the nearby boardwalk and casinos in Atlantic City, the sights and sounds of New York City and Broadway, and other domestic cultural experiences. However, international students in New Jersey are also poised to take advantage of the many natural and historical attractions: the beautiful shore with its boardwalks and lighthouses, bicycling, camping, skiing, fishing, and hiking in one of the many state parks. Winters in New Jersey are cold and snowy, while warm and particularly humid in summer. The state’s climate classification is humid continental, which is the same identifier given to the climates of Beijing, Sapporo, Montreal, Moscow, and Vladivostok.

The state of New Jersey boasts the country's second-highest per capita household income, and is home to some of the most prestigious universities in the nation. Not only that, but there is something for everyone. Felician College, for example, allows students to pursue a liberal arts education in a Catholic and Franciscan environment. Offering a wide range of programs and degrees, international students can pursue an undergraduate degree or advance their career in a graduate program with their accommodating programs, engaging and supportive faculty, and small class sizes that allow for a wealth of personal attention.
