Why did you choose to work at Rutgers Residence Life?
“Last year, I was an AmeriCorps VISTA serving as the volunteer coordinator for a volunteer run, free tax program in Mercer County. Half of my volunteers were college students which quickly made me realize my calling. After I sought a degree in CSA. Specifically, I chose residence life because AmeriCorps taught me the importance of living in the community you serve. It fosters relationships in a unique way at a grassroots level.”
