Prospective Students Get to Know Rutgers

Freshman Hailee Bellusci and other members of the Douglass Student Recruitment Network can answer your questions about college. Look for the purple polos!

Are you interested in studying at Rutgers?

Whether you’d like to pursue undergraduate, graduate or continuing studies programs, you can catch a glimpse of the student experience during Rutgers Day.

On the Cook/Douglass Campus, plant “leadership” seeds and discover what it means to be “a woman of Douglass” from the Douglass Student Recruitment Network. You’ll be able to chat with undergraduate researchers from Project SUPER, a mathematics, engineering and technology enrichment program for first-year Douglass women.

Rutgers Alternative Breaks will also be available on Cook/Douglass to chat with prospective undergraduates who are interested in semester-long service learning experiences.

Rutgers Alternative Breaks students volunteer with individuals with significant disabilities at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center in New Hampshire.

“We’ve helped people in Joplin, Missouri after tornadoes, addressed rural poverty in Virginia and West Virginia, and supported disaster relief in New Orleans,” says Molly Hampsey, who serves as co-president of the service organization.

If you feel inclined to travel the world, head over to Voorhees Mall on the College Avenue Campus to discuss your options with Rutgers Study Abroad alumni. (Make a detour at the Rutgers Dining Services BBQ to sample the campus fare!)

Staff and students from First-Year Interest Group Seminars (FIGS), the Livingston Social Justice Learning Community, and the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities will be on Voorhees Mall sharing the wealth of opportunities available to help ease the college transition for first-year undergraduate students.

Rutgers' new Master of Business and Science is a combination of an MS and MBA degree.

If you are interested in graduate study, stop by Busch Campus to meet students currently enrolled in the new Master of Business and Science (MBS) degree program, which combines applied science courses with targeted business courses.

Over 50?  No problem! The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute offers individuals over 50 an opportunity to expand their horizons, learn in an engaging environment, and meet new friends. The Division of Continuing Studies invites you to Voorhees Mall to learn more about Rutgers’ partnerships with degree completion programs at Brookdale, Atlantic Cape and Raritan Valley community colleges.
