POWER Workshops

POWER Workshops are informational workshops facilitated by student Peer Advisors from the Office of Academic Services. The workshops prepare students to excel academically and professionally as well as increase student knowledge on Rutgers University Newark resources. They are held once a month throughout the academic year in Hill Hall. Attendance to one POWER Workshop is a requirement for all NCAS first-year students, however all new students are welcome. Look out for more information regarding upcoming POWER Workshops on our Eventbrite page.

(If you have any suggestions for future POWER Workshop topics, feel free to e-mail the Peer Advisor Program at peeradvisorprogram@gmail.com)
