The Rutgers University Association of International Relations holds firm in its belief that membership is not something that expires upon graduation. Alumni are an important part of what RUAIR has become and their contributions are what have kept this organization running smoothly for over two decades now. Noting the importance of Alumni as part of the RUAIR community we invite members from years past to join us for any of our regular meetings held Tuesdays at 9pm in Murray Hall room 210.
Though we are happy to see Alumni have found ways to stay connected through social media sites, we would love to have you as part of our Alumni database to contact you with monthly update newsletters with accomplishments and upcoming events. Please click below to fill out a form to be added to our Alumni Network.
After Rutgers, he got involved in politics, working on several local, state, and federal campaigns. He did a lot of community organizing in his free time. He also worked for the Democratic Party in my county. After last year's election cycle he moved down to DC to work for Senator Menendez, senior Senator from NJ and Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He feels it is a great opportunity because he gets to work in a place where everyone is immersed in two of his greatest interests- international affairs and his home state of New Jersey.

Alumni have invaluable experience from which new members could benefit a great deal. If you feel you have experiences about Rutgers University, your career path, or life in general that a student could benefit from please answer the short portion of the Alumni Network Form asking about you ability to participate. This program will be a chance for you to pair with a first-year member to help them find success at Rutgers and beyond. The mentor and student will have a chance to meet or simply exchange contact information after which they can decide on how much they'd like to be in touch. Mentors will be invited to RUAIR events and at the end of the semester there will be a chance for students and alumni in the program to share how it benefited them. As this is a new program we are looking to you to help us build it into a successful endeavor. Please add any input of suggestions at the end of the form. We look forward to hearing from you.
