“It’s an invaluable website for looking for entertainment,” said Duffet.

“Students at Delta College, like everyone else, can use our site to learn about what Stockton has to offer. They can visit the events calendar to see all of the great events happening in our city,” said Duffet.

“The event calendar is one of the largest in the region,” said Duffet.

The mobile app, called the Stockton, California Guide, highlights everything on the website and has an itinerary builder that allows users to save places to visit.

“Our mobile app is also a great on-the-go tool for busy students who don’t have a lot of time to spare,” said Duffet.

One of the classics in Stockton is the Bob Hope Theatre.

The theater hosts events ranging from musicals to classic movies, to comedy shows.

Another landmark is the Haggin Museum.

For the low student admission price of $5 a person, students can see the work of many European and American artists as well as galleries that focus on the history of the San Joaquin Valley.

For nature lovers, take a visit to Micke Grove Regional Park and Zoo.

The 258-acre park includes the zoo, the San Joaquin Historical Society, a Japanese Garden, the Fun Town amusement park and the three-acre Wortley Lake.
