If you are considering making a donation to Rutgers, I highly encourage you to make it to the EOF Program at the School of Arts and Sciences (Cornerstone Project ID 501533). We use this account to assist current EOF students with emergency funds (for example, meals over winter/spring break, glasses, medication), educational enrichment (Study Abroad, graduate exam fees), and travel expenses for internships/externships. Your generosity is appreciated. Here is the link:

We want to increase our social media presence to share information, and pictures of students/events.  If you use Facebook, please friend the SAS EOF Program at:  SAS EOF is now on Instagram @RU-SAS-EOF.  We are using the hashtag #RU1stEOF.  If you attend events, and want to share a picture, it would be great if you used this hashtag, so we can have them in one place.
