On Thursday, Sept. 4, RPCV-NJ President Barbara Kelly and Peace Corps Recruiter Rachel Bueide participated in Rutger’s International Friendship Program’s (IFP) Welcome Party for new international students/faculty. About 100 people attended for a lively meeting of discussion and mingling.
This was the first event in our new collaboration which offers RPCVs the opportunity to get involved with Rutger’s international student/faculty community in a number of ways:
