Kateryna's Story

What has been your best experience so far?

Every day at Rutgers University is a good experience for me. I enjoy every course that I attend because of outstanding professors. Also, living in a dorm was a great experience for me, since I learned how to be independent.  There are amazing professors at Rutgers University. Professors are interested in the success and personality of every student. If you want to talk with your professors there are office hours available and each professor is eager to talk to you. Every professor has a good experience to share with you and they are happy to hear your stories. Faculty are always ready to help each and every student.

How has Rutgers University-Newark helped you achieve your career plans, goals, and dreams?

At Rutgers-Newark Business School there is a special class called ‘Business Forum’. This class motivates students to find internships and helps with writing resumes and cover letters. Rutgers has career fairs, which allow you to talk to business representatives.

What campus organizations/activities have you been involved during your time at Rutgers-University Newark?

I am on the RU-N Dance Team - it's a great experience.

How has living on campus been positive for you?

For new students, I would recommend living in the dorm because there is much more interaction, therefore there is much more fun. The food at the dining hall is good for everyone because there are a lot of foods to choose from. Campus activities are happening on a regular basis and usually you would go there with your roommates, so live in a dorm if you can!

What are some RU-N community projects that you have been involved in and how has it empowered your learning?

I tried to create my own organization at Rutgers. I wanted to have an exchange of students from Ukrainian universities and Rutgers University-Newark. The Office of International Admissions recommended that I move it forward.

What I love most about Rutgers University-Newark?

I love the education at Rutgers University and how professors treat their students.

How has Rutgers University-Newark helped you as an international student?

International Students usually into a cultural shock, but the office of International Admissions does everything possible to help students integrate into American life. Rutgers-Newark helped me to get familiar with American life and culture, which is very different from my own culture.
