“This university is so much more than just your average college. It is this combination of values that sets Georgian Court apart from other schools, and with all of the great experiences and opportunities I have had, I would not want to spend my college years anywhere else. This university has taught me so many things in such a short amount of time, and I am so proud to be a Georgian Court University student.”
