"I've met and gotten to know people from all different races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities. I feel like I have grown so much as a person by being around people from such different backgrounds."

"It's crazy how you can meet someone your first year...and then you may not see them for two years. Then you suddenly see them...and catch up right where you left off. Even though Rutgers is such a large school, there is such community."

"What was so surprising to me about Rutgers is how small it feels sometimes, in spite of its size. I keep running into the same people when I'm walking around campus, and I run into friends from classes and activities more often than I thought I would, which is always nice."

"Health Care Systems, which was about health insurance, turned out to be the most interesting class I've taken. It was an eye-opener to how insurance operates and how it affects us."

"As an LGBTQ+ student, I was not always confident in who I was. However, since being at Rutgers, I've been able to find my voice and be proud of the journey I've been on. When you come to Rutgers, you can always find your community."
