When Daniel Toth was living on campus, he would report at 5:30 a.m. for a fitness regimen followed by a naval science class — all before starting his days as a student at Rutgers University. The Navy ROTC midshipman’s favorite workout has been the "strip swim." Dressed in uniform and boots, he and his colleagues would jump into a pool, then take off an article of clothing every 250 meters they swam. “You don’t see the swim team doing that!” he said.

As the end of the Spring 2020 semester approaches, Honors College senior Amol Lotia reflects on the past four years he spent at Rutgers University.   Lotia enrolled in the School of Engineering during his first year, aiming to expand his analytical skillset and apply his problem-solving abilities. However, he also knew he was interested in business, having already tried his hand at entrepreneurship as a high school student. Driven by both of his passions, Lotia began his pursuit of a dual degree in economics and industrial and systems engineering.

For professor Monica Mazurek, fuel efficiency is the key to keeping air cleaner after New Jersey reopens   On Friday, May 1, New Jersey reported a total of 7,222 deaths from COVID-19, after experiencing its highest single-day death toll. While there is little upside to the epic chaos and disruption wreaked by the viral pandemic, a dramatic improvement in New Jersey’s air quality – long ranked among the nation’s ten worst – is cause for temporary optimism.

Alumnus credits retired dean Fred Bernath with helping him earn his SoE degree For Mark Damiano, the path to earning a BS in civil engineering was far from direct. As the 1995 honors graduate sees it, if not for retired associate dean for academic affairs Fred Bernath, he would not have achieved his goal. “He gave me an avenue,” Damiano recalls. “No man’s an island – you need the help of other people. Through hard work, you can get there. But sometimes you just need a little push, or break, along the way.”
