The New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center observed “Berkeley College Night” on 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 in Saddle River, NJ; Walk MS in Leonia, NJ; the Walk to Cure Arthritis New Jersey at Berkeley College in Woodland Park, NJ; and the Go the Distance for Autism Ride 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 secured its third consecutive United States Collegiate Athletic Association Division II Men’s Basketball National Championship. Student Elijah Phillips of Paterson, NJ, who graduated from Berkeley College with a BBA in Business Administration – Management, rode the Zamboni during intermission to salute the graduating Class of 2017.

 

The event builds on the College’s collaboration with the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center. In 2016, the organizations partnered to support the Children’s Hospital of New Jersey at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, NJ, when they donated 100 blankets to pediatric patients.
