College of Saint Elizabeth welcomes largest freshman class in more than two decades


The College of Saint Elizabeth welcomed its largest incoming class in more than two decades as students moved into the Morristown campus on August 16.

Members of the class of 2022 hailed from all corners of New Jersey as well as other cities across the United States, including Texas, California and Pennsylvania. Some students even relocated thousands of miles from their native Ethiopia, Ireland and Japan to attend CSE.

“The size of this year’s freshman class is reflective of the College of Saint Elizabeth’s commitment to enrollment growth,” said Helen J. Streubert, president of the College of Saint Elizabeth. “We are also welcoming our largest class of incoming male students since going coeducational. We are proud of our mission-based development of tomorrow’s leaders in service to others.”

Amidst countless suitcases, laundry bins and electronic devices, the third coeducational class of freshman teemed with eager anticipation.

“I’m mostly looking forward to the classes,” says incoming freshman Natasia Dicks of Newark, New Jersey. “I’m excited to have a fresh start, it’s something new and exciting!”

Other students look forward to forging friendships with classmates, growing as individuals and gaining their independence.

“College is a new adventure,” explains Tyler Rodriguez of Carteret, New Jersey. “I’m excited to meet new people and make new friends.”

The class of 2022 will be the first to enroll in CSE’s new four-year BSN program. In order to accommodate their learning needs and prepare for the upcoming PA program, the College completed extensive renovations. Simulation labs, exam rooms and a clinical skills and diagnostic center were added to Henderson Hall on campus.
