New Brunswick. September 4, 2012
Students at Rutgers University have returned to the classrooms for the start of the new semester.
Students say they’re excited about getting back to school and seeing their college friends.
Kristen Beatty of Cherry Hill is a senior at Rutgers. She’s majoring in English literature and wants to go to graduate school.
“I think I’ll eventually make it. I can’t live very extravagantly but it’ll be worth it because I’m doing something I love.”
Craig Rutter of Lacey Township is a Rutgers sophomore who’s majoring in history.
He wants to be a teacher and hopes the job market improves by the time he graduates.
“I do have student loans and yes I’m a little concerned, but I have three years to go and hopefully get a masters too. So I hope it picks up because it doesn’t look too great right now.”
All of the students surveyed at the New Brunswick campus say they believe getting a college education is worth the expense.
