The Fall semester is near and we are planning our activities. If you did not get an opportunity to give us feedback please fill in our survey: http://bit.ly/pImvKn
In the fall we want to offer a new way for students to experience Rutgers and its surroundings. We understand that a large number of new graduate students have different challenges while being at the university. One of these challenges is getting around. We would like to help empower new students by offering guided trips to different places (The Malls, Sights and Sounds in New Brunswick/Highland Park/Piscataway/Princeton). These trips would not be the same as GSA trips where one pays and gets a chartered bus or van but would be a way to introduce students to using public transport and smashing that stereotype that makes students feel isolated while at Rutgers.
If you have ideas for us for places to go, things to do that are accessible (or could be accessible) for students using the public transport system please do notify us.
If you would also like to assist in setting up these trips email email@example.com
Our first social hour is at the end of orientation week (26th August). This social hour will have a lot of new Graduate students so we encourage you veterans of our institution to come and join us next Friday and meet the new students. There might be students from your department/country or who share the same interests as you.
Our second social hour will be on the 2nd of September. This social hour will also be our anual recycle drive. Yes Recycle drive is not really the right word but it captures the spirit. Bring in and drop off your old/unused stationery/kitchen/household/other items and we’ll offer it to others at the ISAC Social Hour.
We all know how bare our apartments were in the first few months at the University. We also know that we have collected a lot of useful things that we no longer use and we could give to others who would appreciate more. That’s what the recycle drive is all about. We will announce next week where and where you can drop off items that we will then make available on the 2nd of September.
