proud of,” said Burlington County Freeholder Director Bruce Garganio. “The
Freeholder Board commends everyone involved in the campus’ transformation and

state-of-the-art-facilities while paying the most affordable tuition in the

experience that will better serve the entire college community and we are
excited to share our progress with the entire community we serve.”
