Hello everybody! We hope you enjoyed your Spring Break and the beautiful weather we have been having. As finals are approaching please remember to relax, visit professors office hours, and to think about the awesome plans you may have this summer! This month there are a lot of fun events, such as Rutgers Day, which will be held on April 28th this year. Check out our new page focusing on the Human Ecology Departments affiliate club, Students for Environmental Awareness. Learn about what SEA is
up to, upcoming events, and how to get involved. As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions and are always looking for new writers! If you are interested in writing for the Trail next semester, please feel free to email us (don’t forget you get a credit for doing so)! As a final note, thank you to our wonderful staff for all of their hard work this semester and congratulations to graduating seniors! Even though you are moving on from Rutgers, don’t forget to keep in contact with your professors. Let them know what you’re up to and keep them updated with any internship opportunities you may be able to pass on through your jobs after graduation to current EPIB majors and minors. Have a great summer & see you next semester!
