Why did you choose to work at Rutgers Residence Life?
“College is one of the most transformational times in folks lives and while working in residence life, I have had the opportunity to learn how greatly impacted students are by the living-learning community around them. As a Residence Life Coordinator, I strive to lead with an education-based lens, and challenge students to grow via thought and experience. I hope to show students how much they matter, and how to use their lived experiences and voices to leave an impact at Rutgers University. As a proud alumna, I am extremely excited to return to the institutional system that helped me find my place in this field!”
