A 25-year member of the College Foundation board, Arpino’s service as an educational benefactor helped many Rowan College students through her nursing and allied health scholarships, the college said in a news release.

The new Catherine J. Arpino Education and Humanities Center will prepare the next generation of communicators, educators, government shakers, historians and philosophers and is a fitting tribute to the memory of one of the city’s strongest supporters of higher education, the college said.
