School Notes:

  • Richard Stockton College has the look and feel of a private college because of our size and our focus on student learning. But we are a public college with one of the lowest costs within the state. In short, we have the educational benefits of a private college and the cultural benefits of a public university.
  • Based in the liberal arts, we also have strong programs in many professional programs. We graduate the highest number of majors in science and mathematics among the New Jersey state colleges and universities. Our health science programs are enhanced by having two hospitals on our campus, the AtlantiCare Mainland Hospital and the Bacharach Rehabilitation Hospital. The environmental sciences use our 1,600 acre campus as a natural laboratory for field activities. A 400 acre ecological reserve is set aside solely for natural science research. Few colleges can match the diversity of habitats and study areas available on the Stockton campus.
  • To encourage and reward academic excellence, Stockton College offers two scholarship programs; one for new students, another for students who are already in attendance. Two offices administer the programs; the Office of Enrollment Management and the Office of College Development.
  • In October 2003, U.S. News and World Report, one of the best-known rankings of colleges and universities, listed The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey among the top five national public liberal arts colleges in the country. It was the second time in four years Stockton made the top five.
