Galloway, N.J. – More than 1,600 prospective students and family members discovered the beauty of an early spring day on campus at Discover Stockton Day on March 26. 

The day kicked off with a welcome address and overview of events in the Sports Center, followed by first-year and transfer information sessions. From there, attendees could take a campus tour, join sessions for their potential school or major, check out on-campus housing and drop by the Information Fair in the Campus Center. 

Whether this is your first time at Stockton or you’re ready to enroll, Discover Stockton Day is the perfect opportunity to experience all Stockton has to offer.

Here’s what you can expect your future Discover Stockton Day to look like:
