walking tourContinuing Studies Program Does AC Through Walking Tours

Around 30 people braved a heat wave to embark on a tour through Atlantic City’s former “gayborhood,” now known as the Orange Loop, on Friday, July 22. Thanks to the occasional ocean breeze and some shadowed areas along the route, participants of the program, sponsored by Stockton’s Office of Continuing Studies, learned about Atlantic City’s cultural history. 

Diana Strelczyk, assistant director of the Office of Continuing Studies, developed the walking tours in the summer of 2018 after seeing an article about Levi Fox, adjunct professor of General Studies and Atlantic City historian, leading tours of former casinos. Strelczyk thought a similar tour, but encompassing all of Atlantic City’s history, would be a lot of fun, and that led her to develop the program with Fox.

Nick McDonough will remain Head Women's Cross Country Coach and replace Resch as Head Men's Cross Country Coach. McDonough also will be an assistant coach for track & field.

Todd Curll is voluntarily stepping back as Head Women's Track & Field Coach, but he will remain on staff as an assistant track & field coach, primarily working with the pole vaulters. The moves streamline the coaching staff, with Resch the head coach for both track & field teams, McDonough the head coach for both cross country teams and Curll staying at Stockton as an assistant coach.
