Rutgers Officially Opens Lifelong Learning Center at Atlantic Cape Community College

Rutgers officially opened its new Lifelong Learning Center on the campus of Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 28 hosted by Rutgers President Robert L. Barchi and Atlantic Cape President Peter Mora. More than 200 guests attended the event.

The two-story, 22,000-square-foot facility enables Rutgers to expand academic opportunities for students from Atlantic, Cape May and surrounding counties who hold associate degrees and wish to earn Rutgers degrees – close to where they live or work – in such popular disciplines as psychology and criminal justice.

“This splendid building demonstrates our strong relationship with Atlantic Cape as well as Rutgers’ commitment to address the growing educational demands of this region,” said Barchi.

As Susan and Ashley Rivenbark begin classes as new Rutgers students this month, they are among the first to walk through the doors of the university’s new Lifelong Learning Center on the campus of Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing.

The Rivenbarks – mother and daughter – are starting the next phase of their college careers as students in Rutgers’ off-campus degree-completion program. Both received their associate’s degrees from Atlantic Cape last spring and were admitted to Rutgers’ program there. Susan plans to complete her bachelor’s degree in liberal studies and Ashley in psychology. They will be among 300 students projected to enroll at that site this fall.

As residents of nearby Hammonton, they see the new facility as a draw for other like-minded individuals wishing to complete their degrees.

“I think it will attract many new people like me from the area who are looking for a great opportunity closer to home,” said Ashley.
