Student Development announces annual student, faculty, and staff dinner after 2-year hiatus

The Office of Student Development has announced the 38th Annual Student, Faculty, & Staff Dinner, which is stipulated to be held on Thursday, November 17th, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. in the Campus Center Event Room. The annual event is an opportunity for students to recognize faculty and staff members who have made an impact in their lives by inviting them to the dinner. The last time the dinner was held was in 2019, and well over 300 people attended the event; however, in 2020 and 2021, the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, the dinner will be in-person and students have been advised to choose a faculty or staff member and invite them to a free, sit-down dinner. At the dinner, Kosher and Halal food options will be available, making the event an inclusive and diverse one. When asked about the dinner, Assistant Director of Student Development Dianne Stalling said that “the dinner’s tradition is one that brings together everyone that makes Stockton unique.”

In addition to that, faculty or staff members can invite students who have made a difference in their lives or career to the event. However, tickets will be required for you and your guest to be admitted into the event room regardless of whether you are a student or not. Consequently, individuals intending to be at the dinner are encouraged to pick up their tickets from the Campus Center Information Desk. 

Tickets became available for pick up at the Campus Center information desk at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 27, 2022. The information desk is open between 8AM – 11:30 PM on Monday to Saturday and from 10AM – 11:30 PM on Sundays.

Those who plan to attend the dinner are encouraged to bring a non-perishable item to support the Hunger & Homeless Awareness Week Food Drive. The dinner is organized by the Office of Student Development and is also sponsored by the Student Senate, Campus Religious Council, and Hillel.
