Location

Located in Lodi and Rutherford, New Jersey, Felician University is just 10 miles away from the famous New York City. This gives international students the opportunity to explore New York and all it has to offer, but at the same time gives students the opportunity to retreat to a more residential community for living and studying. With the best of both worlds, international students can grab a train ride to the City, or they can stay home where they are in walking distance to shops, restaurants, and a movie theatre – not to mention the on-campus facilities.

Campus Experience

As a co-educational, liberal arts institution, Felician is home to approximately 2,400 undergraduate, graduate and adult studies students. The campus environment is built on diversity with many spiritual, intellectual, and social events going on throughout the year. With two campuses, each location is self-sufficient, with its own cafeteria, classrooms, academic and administrative offices, study lounges, computer labs, activities and more. This will allow you the opportunity to interact with American students as well as other international students from across the globe.
