The new three-story academic building, with an atrium interior that subtly evokes a cruise ship, occupies the site of the old Atlantic City High School, where Kesselman did his student teaching while studying at Stockton. Similar public-private partnerships have expanded the footprint of Rutgers and Rowan universities in New Brunswick and Glassboro. So instead of converting a defunct casino into a college, Stockton looked south, to a vacant parcel for which a series of ambitious casino projects had been proposed over the last 30 years, but never built. Several new neighborhood businesses have opened, including a pizzeria and an ice cream shop, and several others are expanding or renovating. It was idealistic, obviously, but it certainly allowed a lot of student input. Buses shuttle regularly to the main campus 15 miles away on the mainland in Galloway. He still carries his first staff ID card with the long hair and beard that are long gone. Dovey enrolled, but by the time classes started, the school had moved to the Mayflower. Cancel reply. On the September day some of the first students arrived, they were treated to the spectacle of the Miss America parade sashaying past on the Boardwalk. The new campus was built on vacant land at the southern edge of the city, a departure from an earlier proposal that would have carved the space out of the shuttered Showboat casino. Stockton has brought almost jobs to the city, and South Jersey Gas has added another Additionally, AtlantiCare has opened an urgent-care center in a street-level storefront of the new parking garage the university and the gas company share. He never left, rising steadily through the ranks and earning a doctorate in higher-education administration. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Through its early years , Stockton had a reputation as the hippie college in the pines, separated by a causeway and a couple of generations from the mid-century, cocktail-lounge ethos of Atlantic City. That philosophy was what attracted Harvey Kesselman, who first heard about Stockton after high school when he was working at a Long Beach Island gas station. Website: Required not shown.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} As he recounts those threadbare, pioneering days at the Mayflower, Kesselman stands before a panoramic window in a sleek and airy new building, surveying the campus Stockton opened in fall The new campus marks a return to Atlantic City, 24 blocks south of the long-since demolished hotel where it was born. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Stockton University spent the first four months of its existence in camped out in an eight-story Atlantic City hotel that, like the city itself, had begun to fray. Now he is ticking off the bordering properties where he hopes Stockton might expand in the future. It kept its distance after gambling arrived and casino jobs started luring students away before they graduated. His father was right. Classes switched to the Galloway campus after the first week trimester, but Dovey continued to live at the Mayflower, hitching rides back and forth. You had to grow up quick or fall by the wayside. Your Email: Required not shown. He briefly taught high school math and social studies before taking a temporary job in at Stockton as a tutor and advisor in the Educational Opportunity Fund program, which helps support students from disadvantaged backgrounds. He has since been named to the permanent post. But as gambling shriveled and Stockton grew, bumping up against the Pinelands building limits imposed on its Galloway campus, Atlantic City beckoned with fire-sale prices.

In July , Richard Dovey took a Sunday drive with his father from their Burlington County home to the college he was planning to attend, but had not yet seen. There are no photos with those IDs or post does not have any attached images! Your Name: Required. We were on our own, but that was also the philosophy of the school: You were an adult and should be able to figure out life yourself. Kesselman commuted to classes in the Mayflower from his home in Manahawkin. Kesselman had been serving as provost and executive vice president, but planned to leave to become president of the University of Southern Maine. The administrator has held so many different positions across so many years that he is often referred to as Mr. But it turned out there was a legal covenant preventing the property from being used as anything but a casino, and after much controversy and acrimony, Stockton flipped it in January to a new owner, Showboat Renaissance LLC, a corporation set up by developer Bart Blatstein. Tourists still checked in to stay on the top two floors, but the rest of the hotel was temporarily transformed into classrooms, offices and dorm rooms. One of his regular customers was an administrator who was helping to get the new school started and who saw in the long-haired kid filling his tank, and heard in the conversations they had, a kindred spirit he thought would fit well there.
