Give us one word to describe your Rutgers experience?: Enlightening

What is one thing you learned at Rutgers that has helped prepare you post-graduation professionally or personally?: Internships and learning to ask for help when you need is something I learned at RU.

What is a part of your identity that you discovered while at RU (passion for something, political beliefs, etc)?: I learned who I am as person, a stronger belief in my values morals and traditions I learned to be more confident in my self and those beliefs. I also learned the positive impact my friends and family had on my life.

How has your Rutgers education or network help get you where you are today?: I would say the connections I made and what I learned in the courses I took really helped prepare me for the real world. 

If you could share one piece of advice with a current freshman, what would it be?: Don’t rush to finish school, enjoy your time in college it will be one of the best experiences of your life. Once you graduate the real world sucks.
