Picture Stockton ... Going Outside for Class
Not all classrooms have ceilings. The sky is the limit in Stockton University's outdoor learning spaces that include a Sustainable Farm, the Atlantic City Boardwalk and ecosystems that stretch from the beach to the forest.
Galloway offers a breath of fresh forest air and subtle notes of birdsong, while Atlantic City offers a sea breeze and the sounds of waves crashing on the beach.
Faculty have taken advantage of the great outdoors at Stockton since it opened in 1971. The challenge of creating physically-distanced classroom spaces during the COVID-19 pandemic has inspired even more to take their lessons and their students outside.
See how the longtime tradition of outdoor learning has evolved into a new format of learning during the pandemic.
