Party, hang, chill, whatever. Is that what the next phase of your
life is going to be about? If it is, you’re reading the wrong
Not that we have anything against hanging or chilling or whatever.
Sometimes you gotta. But you can do that on your own time, for a
lot less money and a lot less effort. This book is about your career
and your future.This book is about getting serious.
You have some important decisions to make. The good news is that
there are a lot of fine colleges and universities from which to
choose—the bad news is that only a few will provide exactly
that combination of people, place and attitude that lead to your
fulfillment and success. And it can be very hard to discover which
is your best choice by looking at 50 college viewbooks that all
seem to have the same pretty pictures, the same happy students,
the same brilliant faculty—and the same story to tell.
At Rutgers-Camden, we aren’t above using pretty pictures and
quoting happy students. And we will talk about our superb faculty
and academic achievement and international reputation (it is Rutgers,
after all). But the story we tell will be different, because this
is a special place. A place that’s all about serious preparation
for your future. A place where you can ready yourself for a world
that will probably be 50 percent reinvented in just the time you’re
in school. Where you will be exposed to some of the smartest, most
accomplished teachers anywhere. Where you will be an important part
of one of the most diverse, real-world student bodies anywhere.
A place that looks exactly like the future.
This book is about Rutgers-Camden, and why it might be your best
choice. We won’t tell you it’s perfect and we won’t
tell you it’s easy. If you’re used to perfect and easy,
you probably don’t need us. We will tell you that Rutgers-Camden
is a safe, charming campus, surrounded by a stimulating metropolitan
area (the center of Philadelphia is just across the Benjamin Franklin
Bridge). Rutgers-Camden is not Rutgers-Lite: It is all the world-respected
power and prestige of Rutgers—in an affordable package of
small classes and close contact with your teachers. It is in the
center of a region of tremendous business and scientific activity
and opportunity. Its campus is a peaceful, green oasis, easily accessible
and bursting with energy. Rutgers-Camden is practical, secure, vibrant
and totally committed to the notion that serious preparation and
training can actually be, well, fun.
What comes next in your life?
Keep asking yourself that question as you read on. If you’re
motivated to get serious about reaching your potential and taking
your future by storm—with a lot of very good help—Rutgers-Camden
has the answer.
