Through my experiences, I feel that being an active student leader on campus is crucial during your college experience to ensure that you take full advantage of your time at Rutgers University-Newark. All we have is the present, so take full advantage of the opportunities around you!

The word career definitely used to scare me, and I know it scares a lot of other people, but at the CDC we provide personalized assistance that doesn’t overwhelm the students.

RU-N Completes 14 Projects During Fall 2019 Community Engagement Day

By Claretta Bellamy

“Rutgers University - Newark prides itself on being a very diverse and inclusive campus. Both our campus programming and special events reflect the vibrant campus culture and students we have here. Program Board caters to the U in University. It’s run by the students for the students. As much as we do focus on academics here, that is not all that RU-N is about. We host events that entertain, educate and create unity amongst our student groups. All work and no play creates robots. We rather create happy, functional people.” – Ariel Chambers, Excursion Chair of Program Board
