Rutgers Day April 30th, 2011

On Saturday April 30th thousands of incoming freshmen, alumni, high school students, parents and children descended on the grounds of Rutgers for a fun filled day. Rutger’s Day 2011 was an enormous success with every department at Rutgers representing their prospective discipline’s under huge white tents with creative activities for all.

If you traveled along the paths on the Busch campus you would smell the cooking of burgers and hot dogs from the Engineering Fraternity tents, hear the sounds of WRSU, Rutgers own radio station, and see children of all ages crowed around the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology’s displays.

This year GSAPP had many wonderful activities to offer children and adults of all ages to engage them in psychology. While parents gauged their stress with GSAPP stress cards, children had their faces painted by GSAPP students, Jennifer Jones, Nida Khan, Deseree Romaguera, and clinical department administrator Alicia Picone. Clinical student, Robin Dean, displayed her talent by making balloon animals for children as they perused the GSAPP tent. Sylvia Krieger entertained the younger children with Bubble Art. The children had an amazing time blowing bubbles and creating creative one of a kind 2 minute art projects. Other activities at the GSAPP booth included “Feelings Masks” which were faces that that expressed varying feelings and Name Necklaces and Bracelets that coincided with each person’s personality.

GSAPP students spoke at length with high schoolers and incoming freshmen about the many opportunities a career in psychology has to offer. By and large, Rutger’s Day was a great success with GSAPP students and staff touching the lives of hundreds of children and parents throughout the day.
