Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Bring a fan to Rutgers. It's very hot the first couple of weeks of school.
  • Bring a pair of flip-flops for the shower and a pair of slippers to walk around in at night.
  • Bring a pole lamp for the dark dorm rooms.
  • Bring an Ethernet cable for your laptop.
  • Buses don't always come when they're supposed to, so give yourself more time to travel or always look at before leaving your dorm.
  • Get the smallest meal plan.
  • If you feel like you are going to fail a class, drop it with a "W". Never fail!
  • Take advantage of orientation days because that's when you will meet many new people.
  • Take Geology 101 if you are not a math or science major. Sign up for it on APA Day, the day where you sign up for classes because it fills up very quickly.
  • Try out the various clubs that Rutgers offers. Join an activity that you are interested in because you'll meet people who have the same interests as yourself.
  • Try to use as much as you can. You will be able to find out when the next bus is coming, so you won't have to wait outside as long when trying to get to class.
  • Watch what you eat because you will gain the Freshman 15.
  • You can get quarters for the washers and dryers from the vending machines in your building. If not, you can go to any of the Rutgers student center and get quarters there.
