Law & Political Science

Law & Political Science Students

Judson Suites, Busch Campus

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!

Student Testimonials

“I love the group events, it's really nice to talk to our LLC RA and Peer Mentor about their experiences and what to do for the future.”

“Meeting new people in such a big environment as Rutgers can get difficult sometimes, however, through the LLC I have been able to make more friends and talk to more peers with the same interests as me.”

“The shared class is definitely helpful, being able to pool ideas and resources that are related to our classes and majors has been super helpful.”
