Higher Learning in Madison NJ
Madison uniquely blessed, has three outstanding universities all with a common goal: Student success. In order for students to achieve greatness, Drew University, College of Saint Elizabeth and Fairleigh Dickinson University pride themselves in their students’ eagerness for volunteerism. Students who attend these colleges have a passion for learning and a deep value of service. Personal growth and academic achievement are undeniable benefits of attending any of these prestigious institutions.
All three universities provide their students with many opportunities to volunteer locally, nationally and abroad. Fairleigh Dickinson encourages students to get involved around town and even out of state. Their Community Service Resource Center fosters leadership and community engagement through service learning. At Drew University, the Center for Civic Engagement sponsors the Civic Scholar Program. This select group of students must complete an internship, create their own service project, and most importantly, find the importance in every project they complete. College of Saint Elizabeth 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.
Just as Madison encourages the students from these three universities to become a part of the local community, all three graciously welcome residents to attend athletic, lecture and arts events on their campuses. The benefits of having access to higher education expands Madison’s borders culturally, civically and, of course, educationally.
