@Stockton_edu July 4

My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Stockton University

Location: Galloway Township NJ

I grew up in Northern NJ and what happened in South Jersey was almost like a different world. We got our news from NYC and Newark. South Jersey got their news from Philadelphia. I now live in North Carolina and don’t follow New Jersey news but did see the State of NJ is under a state shut down.

New Jersey Government Shuts Down After Legislators Fail To Meet Budget Deadline

Since 2014 I have been doing a daily post about something and every July 4th I try to weave in the Declaration of Independence. See my post from July 4, 2014 below:


Being a native of New Jersey it never dawned on me that Stockton University located in South Jersey was named for a signer of the Declaration of Independence-Richard Stockton.


The school like many colleges has gone under name changes but it started out as Stockton College.

In November 1968, the New Jersey legislature approved a $202.5 million capital construction bond issue, including $15 million earmarked to build a state college in southern New Jersey. Where it was going to be built was a battle. Ultimately, legislation establishing the school was passed in 1969. A 1,600-acre tract in the heart of the Pinelands in the Pomona section of Galloway Township, Atlantic County, was selected for the site.

Stockton University today is show below.
