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

The Law and Political Science Discovery House is a self-selected group of first-year students who will enjoy the benefits of sharing common residential and academic experiences while making new friends, exploring common interests, and being a part of a close community of peers. Students will benefit from special programs and having residence life staff provide assistance with your transition to Rutgers. It is a thriving academic and social community that will allow you to engage in programs that will allow you to explore the academic and non-academic involvement opportunities within political science, access to a variety of resources and develop lasting friendships!

Programming for this community in the past has included:

  • Land your dream internship
  • Attending the involvement fair
  • Resume workshops and career panels
  • Study survival tips
  • Successful time management
  • Participate in social events as a community e.g. football games

Open to first-year students affiliated with SAS, RBS and SEBS

Students must place into Basic Composition or higher for English testing
