Clothier Hall, College Avenue Campus

“I transferred from community college. I wanted to find a school that was big, had great sports programs, and had awesome academics. Rutgers was able to hit all the points on my list. I’m a journalism major and I want to specialize in sports journalism. I have always loved to write and I’ve always loved sports so it’s a perfect fit for me.I want my time at Rutgers to be remembered as a period of growth. Not just academically, but socially.

I want to make connections here that will last a lifetime. Before finals there was a paint night on our floor. It was cool because everyone was able to relax and have fun and be creative and forget about finals for a while. I am most inspired by people who work hard and go to accomplish their dreams. My life motto is Babe Ruth’s quote,’It’s hard to beat a man who never quits.’”
