Felician College's Lodi campus is located on the banks of the Saddle River on a beautifully landscaped campus of 27 acres and offers a collegiate setting in suburban Bergen County, within easy driving distance of New York City. This campus consists of several buildings.
The Main College Building is a three-story, multi-purpose building that includes administrative and faculty offices, science laboratories, art and music studios, lecture halls, and classrooms, as well as student lounges and activity rooms. It also houses the audio-visual center, computer centers, student lockers and the campus store. It is a barrier free facility.
Kirby Hall, a five-story, 48,000 square foot structure completed in 1994, houses academic classrooms, seminar rooms, laboratories, the Center for Learning, new chemistry facilities, and faculty offices. The building is designed to facilitate interaction between faculty and students with numerous lounges, small conference areas, and tutorial rooms. A well-equipped exercise facility is available on the lower level. It is a barrier free facility.
The John J. Breslin Auditorium and the Cafeteria are connected to the Main College Building by an attractive foyer that serves as a meeting place and a gallery. The auditorium is a modern theatrical facility, comfortably seats 1,500 people, and is used by many international, national and local groups of performing artists. The auditorium also functions as a conference center for various college and community activities. Beneath the auditorium is a cafeteria with a fully-equipped kitchen.
A center for child-care and simulated nursing practice was dedicated in the fall of 1987. The first floor of the building is devoted to a well-equipped Child Care Center for the convenience of students and faculty. The upper floor houses the Nursing Skills Laboratory, providing a simulated hospital setting for the clinical training of students in the nursing programs.
The College Library is a two-story building that serves the needs of students, faculty, staff and alumni with more than 110,000 books and over 800 periodical subscriptions. This collection is enhanced by large holdings of materials in microform which can be utilized on the library's reader/printer equipment.
With its computers linked to information services such as DIALOG and OCLC, and as a member of the New Jersey Library Network and VALE, the library locates and obtains information, journal articles, and books not available in its collection from sources all over the country. Computerized databases can also be accessed directly by users through the on-line First Search workstation where up-to-date information on forty million books and an index of fifteen thousand periodicals is available. The library is also connected to the Internet and has several CD-ROM workstations. Through EBSCOhost, Bell & Howell's Proquest, CINAHL, and other services, students, faculty and staff have access to numerous on-line journal indices—as well as the articles from thousands of periodicals—from anywhere on the campus computer network, or from their home computers. An experienced staff of professional librarians is available to assist users.
The Audio-Visual Center is located in the Main College Building and contains thousands of video and audio tapes and regularly updated equipment for classroom use.
The college's computer facilities include an academic and administrative network, four computerized labs, a computerized learning center, and two computer centers available for students, with a total of about 200 computers available for student/faculty use. All classrooms, offices and facilities are wired for Internet and e-mail.
