Office of New Student & Family Programs

We seek to support the ongoing success of all Rutgers University – Newark students through Orientation and Welcome programming, as well as family-focused programming. By providing a foundational understanding of the University, its resources, and communities, and engaging the family members of our students, NSFP seeks to create a community culture of support and success for Rutgers students and families.

Office of New Student and Family Programs

Through my involvement in The Office Of New Student and Family Programs while mentoring the students, I have been learning many new skills that provide me with a very good opportunity to grow as a human being and learn new life skills everyday, which I’m sure will be helpful in my coming future.
