Dear School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students,
Welcome Class of 2021 and welcome back upperclassmen!
Phew, time flies when you’re having fun and those summer nights just rushed past. Hopefully we all kept cool and took some time to rest, but now it is that time and we’re back live and in color with your weekly SAS Honors Program Newsletter.
Another fall, another school year, and another windfall of events and opportunities to take advantage of and we’ve got some exciting things this week that will help you make the most of the coming semester:
-Need help academically? Take a look at Scheduling 101 with our Peer Mentors and the Drop-In Office Hours that SAS Honors Deans are having all week.
-Already worried about giving your resume boost? Look at the applications to be an One-on-One Tutor or Blogger for the Honors Program.
-Need something to fill the large amounts of free time you have during syllabus week? Try one of the many Welcome Week events held all over or maybe reading about the summer of some fellow honors students on the SASHP blog.
As for the rest of the semester, there’ll be a newsletter every week to keep you up to date on the happenings in the honors program and around the university. This year we’ll also include personal shout outs, see below for more information. For even more news, announcements, and fun you can follow the SAS Honors Program on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, all linked below.

Interested in Being a Tutor?
Do you want to improve your critical thinking and leadership skills? Are you looking for a way to sharpen your academic knowledge while serving the Rutgers community? Volunteer to tutor fellow students! As little as 2 hours of your time each week can make a difference.
SAS Honors Program students in good standing who have completed at least one semester at Rutgers are invited to apply to the Tutoring Program. Tutors choose which course or courses they tutor, and only need to be available 2 hours per week! The application is available online the first week of the Fall and Spring semesters. Students selected to participate in the Tutoring Program will be required to attend periodic trainings and meetings throughout the academic year.

The Rutgers Road to Wall Street Program is designed to boost the interview and technical skills of a select group of approximately 50 sophomores who demonstrate strong interest in and knowledge of the financial markets. Participation in the program requires completion of four Wall Street seminars offered in the fall semester that focus on the initial steps necessary to prepare for the interview process, as well as a three-credit Road to Wall Street Financial Modeling and Market Analytics course taught in the spring term. Participants are also paired with an alumni mentor currently working on Wall Street who will provide invaluable guidance and networking contacts for the duration of the program.
Following the establishment of the program 4 years ago, there has been substantial growth in the number of junior internship placements for Rutgers undergraduates. Rutgers New Brunswick and Newark undergraduate students with an interest in the financial markets and Wall Street careers are encouraged to apply for this exciting program.
