Jungle Jambooskies, a rap group consisting of first-year students Jason “Big Chill” Morel, Edsel Selengalla, Christian “Sibs” Barillas, Nicco Salgado and Jordy Reyes, has released nine singles since its inception in February.

Hip hop group Jungle Jambooskies, consisting of all first-year students, reminds U. to check Sakai

Any student who has attended Rutgers, be it for four years or four days, have all had to do the same thing at some point in time — hop on their computers and type out the five letters that will haunt their nightmares for the duration of their time on the Banks: Sakai.  Rarely is there a time where checking Sakai, the interface most professors at the University use to communicate with students, post assignments and many other not-fun things, is a positive.

Recipes from Rome: Weigh in on Italy's staple food

Rome is famous for four pastas — cacio e pepe, gricia, amatriciana, and carbonara. If you walk into any trattoria in Rome, you are likely to find at least two or three of these pastas on the menu (if not all four).  The Romans are very, very territorial when it comes to food, especially when it comes to their pastas.

How March Munchies winner Hansel 'n Griddle grew from small business to community favorite

As the inaugural March Munchies progressed, and the field narrowed by the week, Nicholas Komandis paid increasingly more attention to the competition.  The owner of Hansel n’ Griddle, one of the 32 restaurants competing in the contest held by the Daily Targum to determine the best eatery in the Rutgers—New Brunswick area, began calling his old fraternity brothers, friends, family — anyone he could get — to let them know about the competition. His restaurant began advertising the competition on napkins both in-store and on deliveries, informing customers of its existence without encouraging them to vote either way. “It was fun,” Komandis said.

Jazzy Jon and the Hard Bop Hitters perform jazz tunes for Garden State Ale House

In the downstairs dining room of the Garden State Ale House with food that’s way too fancy for the average Rutgers student to afford, The New Brunswick Jazz Project is back at it again with another Emerging Artists Night. On April 11, Jazzy Jon and the Hard Bop Hitters swooned the audience with their renditions of their favorite jazz tunes as well as originals written by the band’s front man and guitarist Jonathan Kirschner, a Mason Gross School of the Arts sophomore. Other band members included Stephen Yee on alto saxophone, Ryan Permaul on bass, and Nick Dekens on drums.
