Orientation to a New Home

“Welcome to Rutgers” is the first thing you see anywhere near the New Brunswick campus during or before your orientation week. As an international and a transfer student, Rutgers made an overwhelm-free transition and an awesome beginning into this world of scarlet.

Starting with the organizers who deserve a special “Thanks,” the orientation days were organized by both staff from the Center of Global Services and students who volunteered their time and effort to make this happen. All organizers were very helpful and ready to answer any questions that the international students had. The organizers, the staff, and the students on campus are really welcoming and friendly to the extent that they make a new student feel that Rutgers is the new home and everyone is a family member. Different departments on campus conducted info sessions and workshops for the new students to make them know what are the available resources that they have on campus, and some of those info sessions were presented by the volunteers who did an awesome job. On the other hand, the orientation wasn’t just info sessions, there was a free movie at the Rutgers Cinema, trips to New York City and Philadelphia, Scarlet Knights football game, welcome events, food, and games to make the students socialize with others and start making friends even before the semester starts.

Wether you are prospective international undergraduate or graduate, the orienatation week is where it all begins. It is very useful and entertaining as well so having a good time is guaranteed. Welcome to Rutgers and welcome to R Family. If you are already part of the family please let the new students know more about your orientation week in comments below.
