Livingston College Alumni Participate in Coat Drive, Speed Networking Events (2013)

Board members of the Livingston Alumni Association (LAA) and other graduates of Rutgers’ Livingston College participated in two annual community service events in fall 2013: a coat drive held before a home football game, and a career networking event for students.

Partnering with the organization Jersey Cares, alumni and other football fans donated more than 100 coats during a coat drive, held before the Nov. 16 home game against the University of Cincinnati Bearcats.

The coat drive, part of the Rutgers University Alumni Association’s annual Day of Service in honor of the anniversary of the university’s  founding, was organized by the Rutgers Alumni Association (RAA), via its tri-chairs, Gene Armstead, Luis Largo and Bruce Marich, kicking off with 320 coats collected at High Point Solutions Stadium and the Louis Brown Athletic Center (the RAC) before the game. RAA and Jersey Cares partnered with Rutgers Athletics, Livingston Alumni Association, University College Alumni Association, Rutgers University Alumni Association, Rutgers Mock Trial Association, Rutgers Chapter of Circle K International and the Friends of Frank Tailgate.

Among the many volunteers at the coat drive were LAA board members: Rosemary Agrista, Jeffrey Armus, Joe Capo, Jason Goldstein, Iris Martinez-Campbell, Eric Schwarz and Marty Siederer, as well as Livingston College graduate Langston Campbell.

Back on campus Dec. 4, about 200 alumni filled the multipurpose room of the Rutgers Student Center on College Avenue in New Brunswick, to offer career advice to students (also numbering about 200, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels) at the eighth annual Alumni-Student Career Speed Networking Night. The event is dedicated to providing support and networking opportunities to current Rutgers students before they graduate, with alumni from various career fields interacting with students during short “speed dating”-type intervals to provide career advice and networking tips and to help students become confident job-seekers, with an opportunity for students and alumni to continue their conversations afterward.

The program was sponsored by the Rutgers Alumni Association’s (RAA) Undergraduate Committee, RAA Young Alumni Committee, Cook Community Alumni Association, Livingston Alumni Association, Graduate School of Education Alumni Association, Graduate School New Brunswick Alumni Association and Rutgers University Career Services.

The following Livingston College alumni participated in the Speed Networking event: Rosalie Adox, Rosemary Agrista, Farhan Ali, Ali Ali, Ndidi Amutah, Jeffrey Armus, Yao-Ming Chen, Marc Gerrone, Jason Goldstein, Mindy Hoffman, Arjay Ignacio, Michelle N. Jackson, Michael Kim, Charles Maderal, Jorge Mercado, Debra O’Neal, Niket Parikh, John Reyes, Eric Schwarz and Marty Siederer.

LAA Participates in Coat Drive, Marker Raising as Part of Rutgers Day of Service (2012)

RAA/LAA 2012 coat driveLivingston College alumni collected coats and helped rehabilitate a Delaware cemetery as part of the second annual Rutgers Day of Service on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012.

The Day of Service, organized by the Rutgers University Alumni Association, called on alumni (individuals and organizations) to give back to the community on or around the university’s annual Charter Day of Nov. 10.

COLLECTED MORE THAN 1,000 COATS

The Livingston Alumni Association (LAA) and the Rutgers Alumni Association (RAA) collected 1,170 new and gently used coats at the November 10 Rutgers-Army football game, outside both High Point Solutions Stadium and the Louis Brown Athletic Center (RAC). The coats were donated for distribution by Jersey Cares, a nonprofit community organization that supports those in need.

Jersey Cares collected additional coats at the Dec. 11 and 12 basketball games at the RAC.  Among volunteers in the coat drive were LAA board members Rosemary Agrista, Jeffrey Armus, Martin Dickerson, Jason Goldstein, Eric Schwarz, and Marty Siederer.

RAISING MARKERS TO HONOR VETERANS

In Wilmington, Delaware, Debra O’Neal, LAA’s first vice president, honored both the Day of Service and Veterans Day at the Historic Riverview Cemetery.

The Friends of Historic  Riverview Cemetery (FHRC) organized a “marker raising” on Nov. 10. Volunteers with FRHC visited the east side of the cemetery in Sections 18, 18-U and 18-S (along Eastlawn Avenue). Many veterans have been interred in these sections and the flat markers have sunken over time.   

“We formed teams to raise markers, add crushed stone, and re-set them,” O’Neal said. “We raised 23 markers this morning! It was an honor to hear the stories of volunteers who have served in the military as we worked to restore and preserve the honor of those vets who were interred.  

“The FHRC were glad that I chose this project as my Rutgers Alumni Day of Service Project. I had a chance to explain the purpose of the Rutgers Day of Service and the number of projects going on in New Jersey and around the country. Two volunteers have family in the New Brunswick area and were familiar with Rutgers. They welcomed me back again.”

FOCUS ON HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF

In the aftermath of the storm, Rutgers temporarily housed more than 800 evacuees from Atlantic County on the Busch and Livingston campuses. Rutgers Focus covered the university’s efforts to provide emergency shelter.
