Student Life serves over 400 student organizations and their student leaders through advisement, organizational development programs and support services. These groups range from academic to social action organizations and include the student government of the University, Rutgers University Student Assembly (R.U.S.A.). The staff offers student development programs including retreats, recognition programs, and the annual Involvement Fairs. Students are encouraged to become involved in the planning and implementation of these programs as well as to become active participants.
