From the Director

Dear Students,

Welcome to the official website for The Office of Student Transitions (OST). My name is Jonnine DeLoatch and I have the honor and privilege to serve as the Director of OST.

The mission of OST is to support students transitioning into and completing the middle years of college. We aim to encourage students in developing a sense of purpose; to set and achieve realistic goals as you continue your college journey.

One of my favorite quotes is, "honor the space between no longer and not yet." You are no longer considered a first-year student and you have yet to enter your senior year which will ultimately lead to you graduating from William Paterson University. I encourage you to honor the space between these moments that make up your sophomore and junior years. Ask yourself what type of experiences you need and most importantly, want to have, to make you a well-rounded student.

I hope that you have been encouraged to utilize our services and take the opportunity to connect with OST. The goal is to assist you in manifesting your destiny. Please feel free to reach out to me at, if you need assistance or would like to introduce yourself.

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, remember intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education.

Wishing you a peaceful, restful and enlightening summer!
