The New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center observed “Berkeley College Night” on Sunday, March 26, 2017, to celebrate the success of Berkeley College students and the College’s continued support of charitable initiatives.
As the Devils faced off against the Dallas Stars, Berkeley College associates and students raised funds and registered participants for upcoming community initiatives including the Susan Zabransky Hughes Memorial 5K Run on April 29, 2017, in Saddle River, NJ; Walk MS on April 30, 2017, in Leonia, NJ; the Walk to Cure Arthritis New Jersey, on May 21, 2017, at Berkeley College in Woodland Park, NJ; and the Go the Distance for Autism Ride, on June 4, 2017, in Paramus, NJ.
“As we prepare our students for dynamic careers, we also expect them to leave Berkeley with a social consciousness and go on to make a difference in New Jersey and the world,” said Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College.
During the game, the Devils honored the Berkeley College Men’s Basketball team which recently secured its third consecutive United States Collegiate Athletic Association Division II Men’s Basketball National Championship. Student Elijah Phillips of Paterson, NJ, who will graduate from Berkeley College with a BBA in Business Administration – Management, rode the Zamboni during intermission to salute the graduating Class of 2017. Berkeley College will hold its Commencement ceremony at Prudential Center on May 5, 2017.
