As educators, we understand that learning occurs both inside and outside the classroom. We facilitate a supportive campus environment that contributes to student learning and personal development. Additionally, we seek to inspire students to be engaged citizens within the Rutgers community and beyond.

Although New Brunswick, in central New Jersey, is surrounded by opportunities for excursions into the natural world, the longest trip that many students at Rutgers—New Brunswick regularly take is from one campus to another.

GO Outdoors, a Recreation program designed to get students into the outdoors, aims to change that with accessible trips and courses available to students and other Rutgers community members within and outside of the Division of Student Affairs. 

April is a busy month for Kyra Boss. When she isn’t serving the community with Omega Phi Alpha or serving as a Rutgers University Dance Marathon (RUDM) captain, she is working with the animals at the Rutgers Farm. We caught up with her this week about what it was like to supervise the Animal Fitting, Handling, and Exhibition class.
