Stockton University Atlantic City
Back to its Roots
From its earliest days, Stockton has been a critical part of Atlantic City. The first classes were offered at the Mayflower Hotel at Tennessee Avenue and the Boardwalk. Students and faculty from that first year proudly identify themselves as "Mayflower" students and faculty.
Nearly 50 years after first opening on the boardwalk, Stockton has returned to Atlantic City. The stunning Stockton University Atlantic City campus is a beach-front living and learning environment that is without equal in the United States.
An Anchor Institution
In April 2016, the state of New Jersey designated Stockton University as an Anchor Institution. The decision to do so recognizes Stockton’s impact on Atlantic City and the surrounding region, as well as its potential to contribute to, and help stabilize the local economy.
Opportunities for Support
The Stockton University Foundation seeks to raise a minimum of $2 million in philanthropic support:
Atlantic City Opportunity Fund $1,500,000
Honoring the University's designation as an Anchor Institution, the Opportunity Fund will provide support for initiatives designed to expand Stockton students' engagement with and in Atlantic City. The Fund will support efforts that emphasize student experience as well as University and Atlantic City collaboration.
Atlantic City Scholarship Fund $500,000
This special scholarship fund is designated for qualified students who graduate from Atlantic City High School and choose Stockton. Scholarship assistance aids student success.
