Getting Back from Break
All good things come to an end, and that includes winter break! Welcome back to campus, to classes and to college life. Here are some ways to ease your transition into the Rutgers routine.
- County College of Morris Will Offer Rutgers Baccalaureates at CCM’s Randolph Campus Beginning In Fall 2014
- Do More Than Beat The Heat This Summer; Beat The Competition Through Courses
- PALS: Making a difference for Non-English students at Rutgers University in Newark
- Rutgers School of Public Affairs & Administration and the Public Technology Institute Announce Strategic Partnership
Still need to add a course, or drop one? Check the academic calendar to make sure you do so without getting a “W” grade.
Have your list of books for those classes? Check out the hours at the Campus Bookstore, where you can buy your textbooks and whole lot more, including technology and Rutgers-Newark gear.
If you still need a parking permit, you can get one online or at the Commuter Transit and Parking Services office in Blumenthal Hall.
Blumenthal Hall also is the go-place for paying bills, getting a photo ID, applying for financial aid, filling a prescription, getting medical care, and other student services.
Check out spring hours at John Cotton Dana Library; if you just transferred to Rutgers University-Newark, check out all the resources and services available at Dana!
Want to take a yoga class, pump iron or go for a swim? The Golden Dome Athletics Center is where you want to be.
Need an internship? Already thinking ahead to summer? Or are you graduating this spring and looking for employment? Come to the 16th Annual Internship and Summer Jobs Fair on Jan. 29. Be sure to dress to impress potential employers and to bring a supply of your most current resume and/or candidate business card.
Want to do something really different after graduation? How about teaching English in another country? Learn more at the free Jan. 28 information sessions for teaching English abroad.
And since there’s more to college life than classes, make some time for the concerts, plays, talks and other special events planned for spring 2014. Don’t worry about tight budgets -most are free!
And of course the nearby MetLife Stadium is hosting the SuperBowl this February, with lots of events planned in advance of the big game!
