Meet with Katherine
Katherine is a junior Nursing major with a minor in English. She is a tutor in the Learning Center, a member of the Leadership Institute, and is a happy Ambassador Leader. She is a commuter student and drives to campus.
Why did you choose Rutgers–Camden?
I knew I wanted to study nursing and Rutgers has an absolutely amazing program. The open house won me over because they showed me the facilities, answered all of my questions, and helped me see that Rutgers was the perfect fit.
How do you get involved on campus?
Even though I’m only in class with students from my major, I still have the chance to meet new people outside of my program by hanging out on campus. The quad is a great place to make friends and come across students with different perspectives.
How do you take advantage of the resources and facilities Rutgers offers?
I wasn’t aware of the resources that Rutgers offers my first semester. Once I became an ambassador, I dug deeper and learned more about the school’s hidden gems. I started using the free tutoring program. I didn’t know about it my first semester and could really see the difference during my second semester when I did use it.
