Now serving as the associate director of Development for University Initiatives at the University of Florida, Archut credits his undergraduate experiences for his continued interest and career in higher education.

"When I first started at Stockton, I didn’t know where I wanted to end up in life, but what I did know was that I wanted to help others,” said Archut. “And through my involvement as a student leader I discovered how I could make my goal of helping others a reality by working in higher education.”

Stockton Announces Cancellation Of Fall Sports Season

Kevin McHugh, executive director of Athletics and Recreation, shared the following message: Ospreys

Dear Osprey Student-Athletes, Coaches and Staff,
It is with profound sadness and regret that I write to inform you that Stockton's varsity sports teams will not participate in competition this fall season. Stockton University, the Office of Athletics & Recreation and the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) have been working tirelessly for the past several months to explore an appropriate pathway for a return to intercollegiate competition while keeping the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and staff as the paramount concern.

The conclusion is that one of the most effective ways to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 exposure to our athletes, staff, and the campus is to suspend fall competitions.
