Student developers at Rutgers have a place on Busch campus to call home, and it is known as “the Cave.” Except this cave has electricity, tables, chairs and most importantly, computers. “The greatest environment for really dedicated engineers is ‘the Cave,’” said Billy Lynch, president of the Undergraduate Student Alliance for Computer Science, in reference to Hill Center Room 252.

Now he is now working to develop better quality meals for the men and women serving over seas.The Rutgers Food Development and Manufacturing Center has been actively working on making military meals more convenient, said Rieks Bruins, associate director of the Center for Advanced Food Technology.
When Tyler Clementi found out that his former roommate, Dharun Ravi, had been spying on him via a webcam he had set up in their room, the former University student quickly filed a request with University Housing for a room change. Although the case —which charges Ravi with invasion of privacy, bias intimidation, witness tampering and hindering arrest — is incomplete, it has brought national focus to issues affecting college-age students across the nation.
Tyler Gebler watched No. 9 Georgia Tech sweep the Rutgers baseball team last weekend in a series of sporadic production from his fellow pitchers. But the junior righthander saw it all from his computer. Gebler stayed home from Atlanta because of arm tightness — he missed two of the Scarlet Knights’ three series for that reason — but Gebler is tired of missing time. In the upcoming series that begins tomorrow at Florida Atlantic, Gebler will be a relief pitcher.

This week, all 30 hailed from warm climates.
The Rutgers baseball team is not on there, but a successful series this weekend against No. 9 Georgia Tech might merit it some recognition.
Gregory Jaffe, the director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, dispelled several myths about genetically engineered foods yesterday during a lecture at the Marine and Coastal Sciences Building on Cook campus. Genetically engineered crops, or biotech crops, are not nutritionally better or worse than organic crops, Jaffe said. “… The industry has been arguing for a decade now that they will have more nutritious crops coming out,” he said.
