On Feb. 20, 2017, Rutgers kicked off celebrations for National Engineers Week with a spirit day in the Busch Student Center. Spirit day is a day where students can experience different areas of engineering and get involved even if they are not normally inclined, said Priti Kantesaria, a School of Engineering first-year student. Kantesaria is part of the Engineering Governing Council (EGC), one of the two organizations responsible for coordinating the events. While EGC focuses a lot on planning Spirit Day and the signature Cardboard Canoe Races, the School of Engineering is more involved in other events such as the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture series and Young Engineer’s Day. During Spirit Day, multiple engineering societies set up tables where students can learn more about them, and participate in certain activities to get a hands-on feel for engineering. Students from the School of Engineering Honors Program presented a Rutgers-themed Operation game, a project they had been working on during their introductory classes. The Rutgers American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) also had a table up at the event. Kevin Leiton, president of the Rutgers AIAA and a School of Engineering senior, said the organization started four years ago with only seven students.
For years, people have been studying augmented and virtual reality. Now, Rutgers’ faculty is working towards integrating augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) into a learning environment so that the technology can help individuals study other subjects. The Rutgers Cyberlearning Innovation and Research Center (CIRC) aims to assimilate contemporary technology into the learning environment at the university.

It is common for owners to feed their dogs food that they happen to be eating themselves. But some foods, like chocolate, can be particularly dangerous for your companion. Chocolate contains the chemical theobromine, which is similar in structure to caffeine and a central nervous system stimulant, according to the Milliken Animal Clinic. The darker the chocolate, the more theobromine chemical it contains. While the human body contains the enzyme required to break down theobromine, dogs do not have the same enzyme, according to the site. An influx of theobromine can cause excessive stimulation of the nervous and cardiovascular systems in dogs.
Students can meet and debate the ethics of research and other scientific topics with the Bioethics Society of Rutgers University, a discussion-based student organization on campus. Alex Lin and Suraj Shukla, both School of Arts and Sciences seniors, are co-presidents of the Bioethics Society, which opens up conversations about bioethical topics. “Our organization is about creating an open forum where students can come together and discuss current controversial issues in health and medicine,” Lin said.
