Campus Life



Gary Santos Mendoza, director of Rutgers-Newark's Intercultural Resource Center, had a hard time finding acceptance in college as a queer Latino man, an experience that motivated him to provide support for LGBTQ students. He recently received national recognition for his work.


The Rutgers-Newark campus mascot, Scarlet Raider, has gotten a new look. But the transformation won't be complete until students shape its style and identity. RU-N will be working with high school students from the Newark School of Fashion and Design and Rutgers Business School students to create and market Raider-branded apparel.
