With nearly $45 million raised for Students at the Center: The Campaign for Saint Peter’s College, Saint Peter’s will kick off the Campaign’s public phase on Friday, May 6, 2011 with an official launch event at the Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City, New Jersey.
At the heart of this comprehensive Campaign is the construction of the College’s first ever, state-of-the-art student center, which will house space for student activities, dining and study facilities, and boast many other noteworthy features, once built. The enrichment of five additional priorities – academics, athletics, the endowment, Jesuit mission and identity and The Saint Peter Fund – is also a central component of the framework for Students at the Center.
Leadership-level College supporters were invited to Liberty National Golf Course, Jersey City’s most exclusive waterfront destination, to celebrate the momentous Campaign launch event. Guests will have the opportunity to celebrate the success of alma mater amidst unmatched panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline. A surprise performance by a top-rated musician will provide an energetic end to the night.
Entering the public phase of Students at the Center on May 6 will mark a moment of transformation for Saint Peter’s College. Once this phase is underway, Saint Peter’s can announce to the world its plans to raise the bar for what defines a first-class, Jesuit higher education, and begin to anticipate groundbreaking for the student center in the coming months.
