February News

Dear Alumni and Friends,

Greetings from Stockton University! Earlier this year, we kicked off our Presidential Vision Tour in Philadelphia and made three stops in Florida. Our journey across the states will continue in New York City on Wednesday, March 9 and San Francisco, Calif. on Friday, March 11. I have enjoyed sharing our distinctive vision for the future, as well as the many accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff during my time on the road. Here are just a few highlights of what has been happening at Stockton:
