Why did you choose to work at Rutgers Residence Life?
“Learning is an interesting phenomenon, because it is cyclical and contagious. As educators teach students, they also learn from students; students then share that knowledge to peers, friends, family, who teach others what they have learned. My students continue to teach me something new every day, and I embrace those ideas. They help me to think outside of the box, in ways that I might not have thought before. Rutgers University fosters an environment to empower students in and out of the classroom where students have the opportunity to present new ideas of exploration, think critically, and work hard, while having an enjoyable experience.”
