Thomas Edison State University

Since 1972, Thomas Edison State University has provided a unique and critical product in the realm of higher learning: a flexible, high-quality college education and degrees for adults. A pioneer in the use of technology for distance learning, TESU offers adult students the ability to gain an associate, bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree in more than 100 areas of study no matter where they live. From its campus in downtown Trenton, TESU has enabled more than 16,200 students from all 50 states and more than 67 countries to pursue higher education, awarding a cumulative 61,750 degrees. While it is a virtual college, TESU has a unique bricks-and-mortar presence in Trenton, headquartered at the Kelsey Building complex on West State Street, whose main structure was designed in 1910 by world-renowned architect Cass Gilbert (designer of New York City's Woolworth Building). The Kelsey Complex serves as the University's executive center and encompasses the Kelsey Building on West State Street and five restored mid-19th-century brick townhouses adjoining the Kelsey Building. The University completed renovations to 102 West State Street in 2014 to create Center for Learning and Technology. Located directly across the street from the Kelsey Complex, the Center is home to the University's course development team and includes office and meeting space as well as a media production studio. TESU's The John S. Watson Institute for Public Policy is located in Trenton's historic Kuser Mansion, also on West State Street, and the University recently renovated the former Glen Carin Arms apartment building next door to the mansion, transforming it into George A. Pruitt Hall, a state-of-the-art nursing school and the academic hub for the University. These buildings are complemented by the modern Hanover Hall located a block north, on West Hanover Street.
