“I liked reconnecting with familiar faces and old friends and meeting new people. I also liked the opportunity to be by myself , to experience how college can develop a sense of independence, and to learn about the many things that the university offers.”
“My favorite part of Orientation was learning about all of the resources available and different clubs and communities I could be a part of.”
“I very much so enjoyed meeting my group and had a blast at the Rutgers game show and the social. I also thought the health and safety presentation were very educational.”
