Admissions: Campus Life: Life at the Jersey Shore
Georgian Court University is uniquely located to give you access to all the best that New Jersey has to offer. Just 20 minutes from some of the best beaches at the famous Jersey Shore, GCU is also only an hour from the world-class museums, concert venues, sports arenas, shopping, and food of New York City and Philadelphia. Even if you don't have a car on campus, the NJ Transit terminal is just a few blocks away, so you can easily check out all that the New York metropolitan area has to offer!
And of course, students always find time for beach picnics, bonfires, swimming---and even studying---at the Shore.
Being near the Jersey Shore has its academic benefits, too. Biology students often conduct research near the ocean, art majors get to see exhibits that travel the world, and dance majors showcase their talent at special performances and festivals unique to the Jersey Shore. Some of our business students have interned with baseball teams, and communications students have interned at publishing houses and national magazines.
