When I first began having discussions about college, I honestly never even considered Rutgers University. At the time, I felt the institution was too large, as there were about 30,000 undergraduate students, and as someone that is not a city person, I didn’t want to feel uncomfortable at college being surrounded by so many people. I also had the mindset that Rutgers was just a party school, and did not think it was good in regards to academics. However, after speaking to multiple teachers, family members, etc., that attended Rutgers University, my outlook soon changed.
Given my ignorance, I did not previously consider Rutgers University to be a good school academically, and was quite pleased when I actually took the time to get to know more about the institution. I never toured the entire campus (as there are 5 campuses for the New Brunswick location), but after visiting Douglass Residential College, I decided that I would indeed like to attend Rutgers University. DRC was appealing to me because I saw it as the best of both worlds: I would be a Rutgers student with access to its large network of students and alumni, but I also would be a part of a smaller network of women and would not find myself getting lost in the chaos of a large institution. Being a member of DRC also provided me with access to more potential scholarships, and ultimately my decision to attend DRC/Rutgers allowed me to visit Mexico twice as an undergraduate student, free of charge.
However, from a retention standpoint, I made sure to get involved in a variety of ways on campus so that I can meet new people and maximize my positive impact. I joined an organization that supported our sports teams, multiple organizations that planned volunteer opportunities, and I also was later involved in Greek Life. Personally, they all positively contributed to me remaining in school because they were fun and allowed me to feel better connected.
Lastly, in regards to staff/faculty, people that gave me a chance, even when they didn’t realize it, absolutely helped me remain in school, and helped me move towards accomplishing my goals. Honestly, as an undergraduate student, at one point my grades plummeted because I was too focused on skipping class to work and afford living off campus and tuition. However, I was still able to obtain a research assistant position because I had established a great connection with one of my Spanish professors, and she reached out to me personally about helping her. Without her, I would have never considered myself research material. I also had a few staff members take a chance on me when it came to being on an executive board, because my grades were slightly under the requirement. Had they not given me the opportunity to serve the board, I’m not sure if I would now be in student affairs. That opportunity opened so many doors for me, and kept me looking forward to new programs and ideas to come for our students.
