Due to COVID-19, we have removed the residential requirement, and have instead moved our learning communities online.

The Business Discovery House is a self-selected group of first-year students who will enjoy the benefits of sharing academic experiences while making new friends, exploring common interests and being a part of a close community of peers. Students will benefit from virtual programs/activities, and having a residence life staff member provide help in acclimating to Rutgers.

This is a community for students who have a strong interest in any field in business and closely related fields.  Students gain advantages in areas that help them academically, as well as build important skills that will allow them to succeed in the field of business e.g. networking, interviewing.

Programming for this community has included:

  • How to stand out at career fairs — Preparing for RU careers fairs in advance, during the fair and then what to do after
  • One Major = Many Career Options – Review of major options and different career paths
  • The Importance of Internships – Review of gaining experience through internships, as well as how to get an internship
  • What is networking?  — Importance of networking and different strategies
  • Connection with faculty and staff outside of the classroom
  • Attendance at the involvement fair
  • Participation in social events as a community e.g. football games

  1. Enroll in SAS, RBS, or SEBS.
