As we prepare for the start of another school year, you may be wondering how you can stay connected to Rutgers University, its resources, and other Rutgers students.  Look no further.  Below are ways you can get connected and stay connected throughout the summer.

Ways to Get Involved

One of the best parts of the college experience is making new friends and connections that can last a lifetime. Since classes this fall will be online and you will not be physically on campus, it is even more important for you to have the opportunities to meet other students and make connections when we are back on campus.

We have just the opportunity for you to do that now! Start to build your Rutgers network by joining a Scarlet Knight Interest Community, a virtual platform for incoming students to meet and connect with new friends.

Learn more about these Communities and how you can join here.

Summer Programs

Every week are social opportunities to connect with other incoming students.  Try your hand at Bingo, Trivia, Coffeehouses, Movies, and more!  Login to your Canvas site ( to learn more and get the access codes!
