Located in Morristown, New Jersey, the College of Saint Elizabeth is a Catholic-affiliated university, founded by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth. Originally a women's college, the school now provides opportunities for both genders. CSE offers courses at the undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education levels, with a number of degrees and programs from which to choose. CSE also hosts an Honors Program--one that offers distinct honors seminars as well as advanced sections of other core courses within the college.

Only about an hour away from New York City, CSE is a great place for students interested in experiencing a large city's culture, without living there.
