Campus Life

By Carla Brady

In the beautiful town of Madison, New Jersey lay three unique schools all with a common goal: Student success. In order for students to achieve greatness, Drew University, College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE) and Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) pride themselves on students who have a passion for learning and value service. Personal growth and academic achievement are undeniable benefits of attending any of these prestigious institutions.

All three colleges provide their students with ample opportunities to volunteer locally, nationally and abroad. FDU encourages students to get involved around town and out of state. Their Community Service Resource Center fosters leadership and community engagement through service learning. At Drew the Center for Civic Engagement sponsors the Civic Scholar Program. Heralded as the first and only all women’s college in NJ, CSE empowers students to develop into civic minded adults through participation in programs such as Culture & Community Weekends, Food Bank of New Jersey, Morristown Neighborhood House, and Spring Break service trips to New Orleans, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, West Virginia and Washington, D.C.

It is safe to say that the students attending Drew University, College of Saint Elizabeth and Fairleigh Dickinson University are taking advantage of the countless philanthropic opportunities offered. Although all three are relativity small colleges, the hearts of the students, professors, and administrators are enormous. Getting a higher education in Madison is a rich experience full of stuffing your head with knowledge and your heart with compassion.
