The new Sun branch is located on the first floor of The Whitney Center on
Rowan Boulevard, a centerpiece of Glassboro's$300 million downtown
redevelopment project and near the Rowan University campus. Sun customized a
prototype branch design to accommodate a 1,500 square-foot space and create an
inviting retail bank environment. The Whitney Center, which opened to student
residents in September 2011, includes first-floor retail space, with housing,
office and classroom space for Rowan University's honors students on upper

monitors broadcast Twitter feeds along with real-time social media updates and
product offers.

To provide customers with a convenient, efficient experience at the new

    lost or stolen card

    customer needs – from check cashing to account openings to loan
    applications – and deliver a one-stop service experience

"Sun National Bank is delighted to bring a new, state-of-the art Sun branch to
the Glassboro community, and we value our partnership with the borough of
Glassboro and Rowan University," said Douglas Smith, Senior Vice President,
Consumer Banking at Sun National Bank. "Sun designed this new branch to serve
the needs of the local community here, including Rowan students, faculty and
staff, as well as local merchants and residents in Glassboro. We look forward
to providing them with accessibility, convenience, personal service and the
most desirable banking products and services available."

Downtown Glassboro has been deprived of an easily-accessible, local bank since
1995, when the last retail branch in downtown Glassboro closed. As Rowan
University and Glassboro have grown – reaching a current population of
approximately 14,000 undergraduate and graduate students and nearly 2,000
faculty and staff employees – so has the need for consumer and business
services in the borough. Sun's downtown storefront branch location easily
accommodates pedestrian traffic and also offers nearby convenient parking.

"The Borough of Glassboro and the Rowan University community are thrilled to
welcome Sun National Bank to downtown Glassboro, and in such a prime
location," said Glassboro Councilwoman Anna Miller. "With well-established
roots in South Jersey, desirable products, and personal service delivered by
local bankers, Sun is the ideal bank to have a major presence in this growing
