A Minor, In Time: International Student Stays on Course in Winter Session

For the 3,400 international students in Rutgers’s diverse student body, online courses taken during summer and winter terms enable them to be in two places at once.

Hailing from more than 115 countries, international students use online courses to hurdle time and distance barriers to complete required courses, pursue a minor, or chase other academic goals.

Bhagyawati Sanghani is one of those. She’s an international student who took a class even though she traveled back home to India over winter break.

Taking an online class -- remotely from her family’s home – as part of Winter Session at Rutgers University-New Brunswick allowed her to graduate with a minor in Public Health in May 2015. That minor rounded out her degree in Biological Sciences from the School of Environmental & Biological Sciences.

BTN LiveBIG: Rutgers brings classes to students 'at the Shore'

Rutgers brings classes to students 'at the Shore'

Far from being a surf-and-sun session with a little learning mixed in, it offered students intensive, intimate courses driven by practical considerations, said Liz Beasley, director of the summer session and special projects at Rutgers-New Brunswick.

“We’re always looking for new ways to get courses to the students,” she explained. “A lot of them work part-time or full-time. If they’re working, they have to cut back on the credits they take. The summer and winter courses are important to them for graduating in a timely manner.”

Instead of paperback novels, Rutgers students might be bringing textbooks as their beach reading. The university will host 17 new undergraduate courses in Atlantic City, Cape May and Point Pleasant Beach.

How to Lay a Concrete Paver Patio or Walkway: A Lifetime of Expert Tips & Shortcuts Shared in 2 Short Days

So you just installed a paver patio.  Stand back and admire your work.  It probably looks pretty decent right now.

But wait a few months. Or a year.  Let one good winter pass.  Now how does it look?

What Can Go Wrong When You Don’t Know What You’re Doing

“A lot of pavers look good when they first go in,” said Alex Burke, instructor in Rutgers’ Concrete Pavers class.  But when an installer doesn’t really know what he is doing, the ill effects will show within a year.  

“After you’ve gone through the winter and had time for settling, that’s when you start to see problems,” explained Burke.  “It might be frost heaving, settling or problems caused by difficult site conditions, like clay soil.”

Educators can take advantage of Rutgers’ highly-rated Summer Advanced Placement Institute offered on the New Brunswick Campus in three sessions running from July 8 through August 15. The program, offered in partnership with the College Board, is open to beginning and experienced AP teachers. 

The sixth annual summer program includes 12, week-long intensive seminars that focus on specific pedagogical issues in the AP classroom. Each program fulfills 30 hours of professional development requirements for New Jersey teachers. Educators also may complete a seminar for three nondegree graduate credits through the Rutgers-New Brunswick Summer Session.

This year, the Summer AP Institute has added courses in AP chemistry and calculus. The program also will address the new exams being introduced in chemistry and Spanish language and culture, which will be administered in 2014. This will be the first opportunity for educators to learn about changes to the exams.
