College next to a casino – Would you support it? – Poll
The Trump Taj Mahal voiced its lack of support for Stockton University's "Island Campus" this week, saying a school next to a casino would be bad for business.
"You do not see a college on the Las Vegas strip," read a statement released this week by the casino.
According to the Taj Mahal, Stockton's ongoing efforts to start a college at the gambling destination would produce trouble as students under 21 would try to access facilities reserved for those who can legally drink and gamble.
Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson, however, said in his own media statement that the area offers underage attractions like the Tangier Outlet shops and Steel Pier. The shoreline would also promote outdoor activities.
"I don't believe that Stockton's presence in Atlantic City is a panacea for all of the city's ills, but it would be a tremendous asset and could play a significant role in the revitalization Atlantic City so badly needs," Levinson said.
