New Student Day of Service

New Student Day of ServiceApproximately 250 new Rutgers University–Camden students spent a day working to improve their new host city during the annual New Student Day of Service that connects teams of Rutgers students to multiple city neighborhoods.

These first-year Scarlet Raptors engaged in voluntary activities at the Food Bank of South Jersey, the Neighborhood Center, and Urban Promise, among many other locations. The goal of the program is to introduce new students to service and service learning opportunities in the community while allowing them to make connections with local agencies.

The work reflects Rutgers-Camden’s commitment to civic engagement in all aspects of campus life, including academics and social activities.
