Choosing to attend Georgian Court University was the best decision I’ve ever made. Like many high school students the college application process was stressful and confusing. Fortunately, I was accepted to all three colleges I applied to, so after some consideration and the planning of finances for the next four years, my parents and I decided that Georgian Court was the best choice for me. My mother was absolutely thrilled! One of her kids was finally going to a Catholic school! As luck would have it, four years later, both of her kids are going to Catholic school! I’m happy to say, my brother will begin attending Georgian Court in the fall as a criminal justice major.
