Ask current Rutgers students questions about academics, campus life, dorm living, and more.
Rutgers has shut down campus visits and tours due to the coronavirus outbreak, and many families are worried about choosing a college without being able to visit in person and get a feel for campus life. In this Q&A session, we'll ask our panel of Rutgers students a series of questions about everything ranging from campus life to athletics to the classroom experience. Webinar attendees will also get to participate in the second half of the Q&A.

I'm majoring in Cell Biology and Neuroscience and minoring in Linguistics, and I hope to pursue an MD/PhD after graduation. I am heavily involved in research at Rutgers, helped found the Rutgers Undergraduate Research Journal, and was named a 2020 Goldwater Scholar for my research in macrophage-mediated pulmonary inflammation. I am also part of the Rutgers Club Fencing Team and I am involved in a lot of teaching and mentoring activities on campus. Being a part of the research community and the undergraduate community at Rutgers has been an incredible experience!
