Rutgers begins offering summer courses at the Jersey Shore

Summer is approaching, which means sandy beaches, bathing suits and ... textbooks. The Jersey Shore is set to be more than a vacation destination this summer.

For the first time, Rutgers University is offering summer classes at the beach, called RU at the Shore.

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.

The best of classroom and online education will be available to students enrolling in Rutgers’ Winter Session on the New Brunswick Campus this year as more courses are delivered in online and hybrid formats than ever before.

Responding to the increasing popularity of online education, Winter Session, December 21 through January 18, will offer nearly 40 percent of its courses in fully online or hybrid – part online, part classroom – formats. Online registration is in progress until December 3 for more than 100 traditional, online and hybrid courses.

Rutgers students like the flexibility that hybrid and online courses offer, and most students who have taken hybrid and/or online courses rate them equal to, or better, than traditional classroom courses in terms of their interactions with professors and classmates, engagement in the courses, and instructional methods.

A few days into their adventure, students who signed up for the new 3-credit course “Severe Weather Field Trip” spotted the Holy Grail for storm chasers. Just north of Cheyenne, Wyoming, 15 Rutgers students watched a swirling tornado.

The sighting was a highlight of the two-week storm-chasing caravan that crisscrossed the highways and back roads of Tornado Alley.

“From a safe distance of 10 miles, we saw [the tornado] quite clearly, not as a big funnel but as swirling dust,” said Steven Decker, an assistant professor in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. “Even if we hadn’t seen a tornado, every team of students managed to see severe thunderstorms, their structure. It was exciting, dramatic and fun to see.”
