What is the Douglass Residential College?

Ladies, if you’re considering enrolling in it, read this post. One of my friends from high school who’s gonna be a freshmen asked me about it and I figured if she had questions, a bunch of others probably do, too.

What is it?
So, the DRC is like a section of Rutgers open to all undergraduate women who wanna be part of it. It’s like a community of women that guide you in the right direction as to what you wanna do in the future and give you a bunch of resources and opportunities for networking when you graduate. You’re part of this section of Rutgers, you take a couple courses on women’s history and things like that (which fulfill the diversity requirement for the school), and you get involved in clubs and things like that within the residential college.

What are the benefits?
You’re automatically eligible for a bunch of scholarships. You get a mentor and extra advising which is awesome because it’s someone you can go to one-on-one when you need her. They have something called an “externship”, which is like an internship in the sense that you’re assigned to an alumni who’s working in the field that you wanna go into after graduation for like 2 weeks. It’s neat because you can make lots of networking connections and it might help you out a LOT when you graduate and are looking for a job. 

Dorming arrangements
So freshmen year you’re living in these dorm on Douglass called Katzenbach and New Gibbons. Katzenbach is an all-girls dorm and you’re living with an RA and a peer mentor, I think. I don’t know what the DRC’s section of Gibbons is like but I’d imagine it’d be kinda the same. After your freshmen year or if you’re a transfer, you’d live in Jameson or Woodbury Hall, or the Henderson Apartments, all on Douglass. The Bunting-Cobb residence hall is like a special-interest dorm (for math, science, engineering, etc).

Is all of Douglass the DRC?
No. And I think people get confused by this. If you’re assigned to Douglass, that’s different than being enrolled in the residential college. All of Douglass is not all girls. And Cook/Douglass is still the same campusThere are co-ed dorms on Douglass (Lippincott, other parts of New Gibbons), so not all of them are girls’ dorms. The DRC just happens to be ON Douglass, but it’s not all of the campus.

To sum it up: It’s a cool opportunity, so check it out if you’re interested. One of my friends is in it and she loves it.
