Put Politics into Action! Apply Now for the Darien Learning Community: Citizenship and Civic Engagement

The Eagleton Institute of Politics and Department of Political Science invite students for fall 2014 to apply for the Darien Learning Community (DLC):   Citizenship and Civic Engagement – an exciting opportunity to put your interest in politics into action on the Rutgers campus and in local communities. 

DLC students will benefit from being a member of RU Voting and register, educate, and mobilize Rutgers students to be politically active, meet weekly with professors and other politically engaged students to explore the connections between political theory and political practice and develop and implement civic and political engagement activities. Students will co-register for a 3 credit course The Nature of Politics, the department’s introductory course in political theory and a 1.5 credit Topics in Political Science course focusing on issues of youth political participation in contemporary United States.    DLC students will meet together weekly, construct and enact political learning activities, maintain a journal about their experiences, and participate in a public presentation at the Eagleton Institute of Politics.  This learning community is open to all majors and class years with a minimum GPA of 3.0.  To request an application, contact Aiisha Harden at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Make History! Change a Life! Be an SASHP Peer Mentor!

The SASHP is looking for motivated, interested and dedicated students to mentor the incoming class. WE NEED YOU to help us orient our incoming students by serving as a peer mentor! 

Apply immediately at: https://secure.sas.rutgers.edu/apps/forms/mentor/
Deadline: Friday, April 25th.

The School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program matches new SASHP students with current student mentors. Mentors volunteer as resources who are available to share information about everything from requirements to professors, to tell you where to get advice, and to be a familiar face at SASHP and college events. Mentors range in class year from sophomores to seniors, and majors from Art History to Molecular Biology.

When possible, we match students on the basis of possible major, career plans, and extracurricular interests. The participants determine the nature of the mentoring relationship: some meet only once or twice, and some form lasting friendships. We leave that part up to you!

***Current Mentors must re-apply for the next academic year and all Peer Mentors must attend training***

WANTED: Interested, motivated SASHP students to volunteer for an academic advising opportunity with your new peers!

Summer Honors Colloquium

Here's your chance to take a special Honors Colloquium! 

This Colloquium is special in two ways: it will take place in the summer, and it will be taught by our Writer-in-Residence Paul Blaney (http://www.sashonors.rutgers.edu/about/meet-the-staff/159-mr-paul-blaney-writer-in-residence.html?catid=4%3Ameet-the-staff).

This hybrid course will focus on the concept of the city. We'll be considering fictional cities, ancient and modern cities, ideal and organic cities, declining cities, and imaginary cities. Questions explored will include how do cities work, how do they not work, and how to design a city that will thrive. Details below:
