New Student Programs

New student on campus? Just getting acclimated to Rutgers-Newark? Want to experience first-hand our campus culture and learn about all the campus resources?  

That is what our new student programs are geared towards - helping you further become a part of our campus community.  

We host programs that build upon the foundation set at Student Orientation, Advisement and Registration (SOAR) to further enable, grow and empower students to positively acclimate to the campus and embrace the culture of our student leaders. 

The Office of Student Life and Leadership creates and manages programs such as Peer Connect and has first-year experience events that allow new students to learn about campus resources, build relationships, develop and enhance leadership skills, and become involved in the campus community.
