Where Were You At 62? Court Reporter Finds Her Own Words Through Rutgers Degree Earned Off Campus

Patricia Florio of the Rutgers Class of 2005

Patricia Florio spent an entire career as a court reporter writing other people’s statements.

But all along, the writer inside of her wanted to put her own words down on paper.

And at age 62, when many contemporaries were calculating Social Security payouts, Florio earned her bachelor’s degree through Rutgers Off Campus Programs to help launch her second career as a writer.

When she worked in federal court in Brooklyn, N.Y., Florio had to painstakingly assure that every word was recorded correctly, for legal purposes. “On the job, and through someone who proofed my work, I learned how to become a perfectionist,” said Florio. “And that is very much required when you're a court reporter.”

Florio also had experience as a freelance newspaper reporter, giving her the background to launch her writing career. But she felt she needed the confidence that a college degree would provide.

First Rutgers Off Campus Grad in Public Health Takes the Long Road

Rutgers Off Campus Programs at Atlantic Cape Community College

Mishi Resian’s life journey has taken her from a village in Kenya, to U.S. Army bases in Germany and New Jersey, to deployment in Iraq as an Army combat medic, and then to community college near her home in Galloway Township, N.J. near Atlantic City.

But no path has been more important to her than the walk for her Rutgers diploma.

In May 2015, Resian graduated as the first-ever student in the Center for Off Campus Programs in the Rutgers Division of Continuing Studies to earn a Bachelor of Science in Public Health degree from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.

Taking all those roads, her commute by contrast seems easy: While she is an Off Campus student, Resian chose for the past two years to drive the 100 miles from Galloway to New Brunswick to take all classes for her major in person. This semester, she also took three classes at the Rutgers Off Campus Programs location at Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing, close to her home.

As Susan and Ashley Rivenbark begin classes as new Rutgers students this month, they are among the first to walk through the doors of the university’s new Lifelong Learning Center on the campus of Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing.

The Rivenbarks – mother and daughter – are starting the next phase of their college careers as students in Rutgers’ off-campus degree-completion program. Both received their associate’s degrees from Atlantic Cape last spring and were admitted to Rutgers’ program there. Susan plans to complete her bachelor’s degree in liberal studies and Ashley in psychology. They will be among 300 students projected to enroll at that site this fall.

As residents of nearby Hammonton, they see the new facility as a draw for other like-minded individuals wishing to complete their degrees.

“I think it will attract many new people like me from the area who are looking for a great opportunity closer to home,” said Ashley.

Gifted Education Program for Teachers Expands to South Jersey

Information session set for September 6 in Mays Landing

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Starting in January 2013, K-12 educators in South Jersey will have more convenient access to Rutgers’ Gifted Education Graduate Certificate Program, which will be offered for the first time at Rutgers’ new facility at Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing.

Free information sessions about the program will be held throughout the fall at Atlantic Cape.

New Jersey state law requires school districts to assess giftedness and provide gifted instruction in kindergarten through grade 12, but offers little guidance on program design or professional training, according to Liz Beasley, director of the program.
