The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey will host the 9th Annual Day of Service on Saturday, September 8, 2012, beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the Campus Center Event Room. “The event has become an annual tradition at Stockton as we prepare for the coming academic year,” President Herman J.

As an additional feature, students get to know one another and become acquainted with faculty and staff members.”The event has grown each year and the College is expecting more than 300 student volunteers to participate in projects benefitting over 25 community organizations.
Faculty, staff and members of the community are also invited to participate.
