5. NEW: College Rowing Program Announcement. Coach Tylander received the following information that we are sharing with you for your awareness. Stockton University, not far from Philadelphia with campuses in both Galloway and Atlantic City, NJ, is relaunching its Rowing programs! Both the Women’s NCAA Division III Varsity program and the Men’s Club team are being revamped with the imminent hiring of a full-time head coach, the infusion of more financial and equipment resources and the support of President Kesselman and the Stockton rowing coach who are fully committed to growing Stockton Rowing: AC Press & Stockton Rowing. With student recruiting expanding throughout the country, Stockton Rowing will become more robust and competitive.

Stockton is a nationally ranked, mid-sized, liberal arts university at the Jersey Shore. With over 160 areas of study, many of which no longer require the submission of test scores (SAT or ACT) for admission, Stockton may be the perfect place to continue both athletic and academic careers!

2018-19 Open Houses
  • Sunday, October 14 
  • Sunday, November 4 
  • Sunday, December 12 
  • Sunday, April 7 
For more information regarding admission to Stockton, including their new test optional policy, or to register for an Open House or campus tour, please visit them at admissions.stockton.edu.
