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; former RIAS account 539523). 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: https://access.rutgers.edu/sas-eof/alumni/donate-to-eof.

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: https://www.facebook.com/saseof?fref=ts.  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.
