Georgian Court University | Lakewood, New Jersey

Lion statue


Georgian Court University is a private Catholic University

 

There are many lovely college campuses in the United States, but I think that Georgian Court's campus is one of the best kept secrets in the country!

 

Situated on the former estate of George Jay Gould only a few miles from the magnificent Jersey shore and is also part of the famous New Jersey Pinelands. The campus is breathtaking. 

 

However, what makes it extra special are the gardens: The Sister Mary Grace Burns Arboretum. This has helped to make this campus a National Historic Landmark

 

The campus has several gardens: the Italian, Japanese, Sunken, Formal, and Founders Grove. 

 

All are well worth a visit!
