Rhodes? Marshall? Fulbright? Gates Cambridge? Goldwater? Udall? Truman? You can win one of these!
We invite you to come celebrate Rutgers’ success in the competitions for the Churchill and Luce Scholarships as well as the Fulbright Grant, and hear from Dr. Arthur D. Casciato, Director of Rutgers’ Office of Distinguished Fellowships, about how students just like you were selected for these prestigious national awards.
The Office of Distinguished Fellowships assists in all stages of the application process for major national fellowships and postgraduate support, and is geared not only for students in their last year of college, but for all students—from first-years to seniors—who want to pursue their academic goals beyond Rutgers through a national fellowship.
We encourage you to take full advantage of the resources of this office and learn about these fellowships early in their college careers, so we hope you will join Dr. Casciato for this very special Tea with the Dean!
Seniors interested in the Fulbright are especially welcome. There's still time!

On this trip, we will be looking at Dutch paintings and art--from Rembrandt to Miro, Dutch paintings of the seventeenth century—the "Golden Age" of Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals, and Johannes Vermeer— to the work of modern artists Miro influenced by the Dutch masters, all which have been eagerly collected in America over the past two centuries.
From its founding purchase in 1871 of Dutch landscapes, portraits, still lifes, and scenes of everyday life, the Metropolitan Museum now houses the finest and most comprehensive collection of Dutch pictures in the Western Hemisphere.

Be transported: when it comes to summoning the spacious vistas of the American landscape, few pieces can rival Copland’s Appalachian Spring and Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony. A different landscape beckons in Silent Woods, inspired by the serene forests of Dvořák’s native Bohemia and performed by NJSO Associate Principal Cello Stephen Fang.
HereNow: Rutgers 250 celebrates the 250th anniversary of Rutgers University by looking to the future. The project includes three components: a digital gallery, a museum exhibition, and a book.

What To Expect When You’re NOT Expecting: Fertility and Health Insurance Wednesday, February 3 at 9PM - 10PM
Scott Hall, Room 206, College Ave Campus
Welcome back to another semester at Rutgers! Mark your calendars - the Rutgers Bioethics Society will be having its first general body meeting, "What To Expect When You’re NOT Expecting: Fertility and Health Insurance".
In celebration of our first meeting, free food and beverages will be provided!
With the presidential elections impending, there has been a lot of discussion about single payer health insurance. As health care costs continue to rise, presidential candidates from both parties have shown support for single payer insurance. If our health insurance were to switch to single payer, should fertility treatments and procedures be covered? Is fertility a human right that should be covered by insurance or should it be the responsibility of individuals to pay the costs? Come by on Wednesday night to munch on food while we talk about the ethical implications this change could have on fertility in America!
