NJUS marks second year at University
The New Jersey United Students, a statewide student organization that aims to increase accessibility and affordability for high education, celebrated its two-year anniversary yesterday.
Spencer Klein, president of NJUS, said one of the biggest accomplishments the group made in its two years was the voter registration campaign, where they registered about 6,300 voters statewide.
“The more students find out — the more students want to get involved,” said Klein, a School of Arts and Sciences senior. “[If] student power is in play then there is very little that can’t be accomplished.”
Since the organization’s beginning, the group has grown to include about 14 member campuses including the University, Rutgers-Newark, Rutgers-Camden, Rowan University and Montclair State University.
“It’s been a really great two years, but it’s only the beginning of what we look to accomplish,” he said.
The organization is working to guarantee in-state tuition for New Jersey’s undocumented students.
