Stockton University

Galloway, NJwww.stockton.edu
Stockton had already had three other names by the time it was designated a university in February 2015 -- and it wasn't even 50 years old. Its 7,800 undergrads and about 800 post-grads are overwhelmingly from New Jersey. They can choose from three bachelor's degrees in seven different schools, while post-graduate options include master's degrees in three areas and doctorates in physical therapy and organizational leadership in education. Top majors are business, health professions, and social sciences. Stockton's School of Business includes undergrad programs in business studies, hospitality and tourism management, and computer science and information systems, as well as an MBA program. Students in the School of Health Sciences receive career preparation in such areas as nursing, public health, and communication disorders. Stockton's location, in the Pinelands National Reserve, about 12 miles from Atlantic City, provides it with a myriad of living/learning opportunities. Marine science or environmental studies majors have a chance to do field work at two coastal research facilities that specialize in marshland and estuarial studies. Stockton's hospitality management program includes hands-on training at the nearby Seaview Resort, a historic hotel-resort property the university bought in 2010. Though nearly two out of every three students live off campus, the schools boasts over 200 student groups, including an array of Greek organizations, the conservation-minded Stockton Ducks Unlimited, and the literary magazine Stockpot.
