While you study here, be sure to visit some of New Jersey’s fun historical landmarks!

New Jersey is known for its rich history, technological firsts, and legendary personas. It is where George Washington, America’s first president, crossed the Delaware in the American Revolutionary War. It is where Thomas Edison invented the electric light bulb. It is where beach boardwalks and the game of baseball were born. Now home to 8.7 million residents, our small yet powerful state is a time-tested sweet spot between New York City and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
