NJCU’s Mention in Mayor Fulop’s Ward A “State of the City” Address

And we quote:

“Two of the most important projects in the city are actually happening right here in Ward A. First, We are especially excited for the expansion of New Jersey City University’s campus here in Ward A, which will include new residential housing and retail space. This is one of the largest and most transformative projects in the entire city. This expansion will be located on a 21-acre vacant site here in Ward A. As mentioned before, it will include new residential housing, new student housing, retail including a brand new large supermarket for residents on the south side of the city. A project of this magnitude will have an incredible impact, and will bring new opportunities, jobs and activity to this underutilized area.”(10)

Read the whole Ward A address given on March 20, 2017.

Making New Jersey Colleges More Affordable

The final report of the New Jersey College Affordability Study Commission has just been released. It lists many recommendations within it to make going to college in the state less of a financial burden. It needs to be remembered that New Jersey ranks as the fourth most expensive state to attend public college. And once again, it needs to be pointed out that New Jersey City University charges the least tuition of any public college in the state.
