Student Activities

Rutgers maintains a quality out-of-classroom program experience as a means of broadening the overall educational development of its students. The Office of Student Activities and the Rutgers-Newark Program Board plan and coordinate an extensive activity program which enriches the educational, cultural, and social experience of students. The Office of Student Activities is responsible for the development of specific programs and activities for our diverse student community. It serves as adviser to students and their organizations in all aspects of their cocurricular involvement at the campus.

Musicians, featuring both classical and contemporary styles, regularly appear on campus. The Rutgers-Newark string orchestra, concert band, and university chorus also provide outlets for student musical talent. Art exhibits are a frequent feature at the campus center. Professional and student groups perform at the theater, and frequent trips to the New York theaters are promoted by a number of student organizations. The Observer, the student newspaper; the Encore,the yearbook; WRNU, the student radio station; and several other student organizations provide valuable experience for students interested in communication media.

Close to one hundred on-campus undergraduate organizations related to academic interests, contemporary problems, the arts, religion, and the professions encourage students to participate in their regularly scheduled meetings and special events. Both social and honorary fraternitiesand sororities are available to students who wish to identify with small service, social, or professional groups. Several of the major religious faiths maintain fully staffed facilities near the campus. For more information, call 973/353-5300 or 5881.
