Saint Elizabeth University

Morristown, NJhttps://www.cse.edu
Established over a century ago, this private Catholic school was primarily a women's college until 2015, when the board of trustees decided to officially welcome men into its daytime programs. Now fully co-ed, the institution welcomes everyone into its popular health, psychology, business and education programs -- and as of July 2020, it's officially called Saint Elizabeth University. Undergraduate classes boast a student-faculty ratio of 13:1, and professors make a point of learning each person's name. Students can check out internships and connect with mentors through the Experiential Learning Center. Those opportunities set students up for success, with nearly all 2016 graduates finding jobs or pursuing grad school within six months of commencement, the college reports. But life at SEU is not just about academics. On campus, you can find students taking part in dance-slash-party events called Rathskellers or attending services at chapel. Off campus, students can explore Morristown -- known as "the military capital of the American Revolution" -- or take a quick, roughly hour-long train ride into New York City.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
FALL 2020 PLAN: SEU is starting its fall semester online and then transitioning to on-campus instruction for students who choose to attend in-person classes (classrooms have been rearranged so everyone can stay six feet apart). The term ends the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
