Saint Peter's University

Campus Profile

Saint gal

Just ten miles west of Manhattan, Saint Peter’s University is a private, Jesuit institution offering more than 50 undergraduate majors as well as master’s degree and doctorate programs. Basing its programs on the Jesuit tradition of personal care for each student, Saint Peter’s provides a unique opportunity to combine rigorous academics with a community service orientation.

With historic Ellis Island within its borders, Jersey City was the first stop for many new arrivals to the United States. In that tradition, you’ll find the city is the perfect place to start exploring America’s diverse cultures and the amazing sights and sounds of nearby New York City!

A homestay is a great way to experience American culture while improving your English ability! All of our centers offer homestay accommodation with American families individually selected by FLS. With your host family you'll learn about American daily life, practice English on a regular basis and participate in many aspects of American culture that visitors often don't get to see.
