Your Guide to New Jersey Colleges

New Jersey is known as the Garden State and is host to numerous parks and attractions. The north boasts mountains and forests, while the south is home to the beaches that inspired the famous MTV show, "Jersey Shore." New Jersey is in the unique position of being in between two major metropolitan areas, in Philadelphia and New York, providing leisure, work, and culture to the area. The state itself has key cities in Newark, Atlantic City, and Paterson.

New Jersey has a disproportionate amount of colleges for its small size, with Ivy League representation in Princeton University. Job outlooks are strong in most areas, with a particular emphasis on the pharmaceutical industry, with industry leaders like Johnson & Johnson, Merck, and Pfizer. Essentially any degree can be put to use in New Jersey, due to its proximity to Philadelphia, New York, and the numerous opportunities that coincide with this.
