James Dickson Carr Library, 75 Avenue E, Piscataway, NJ 08854, USA

Join Rutgers University Libraries and the Livingston Alumni Association as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Livingston College.
Livingston College’s first students arrived on campus 50 years ago in September 1969. To mark the occasion, please join us on Friday, October 25 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for “Livi at 50: A Celebration of Livingston College’s 50th Anniversary” at the James Dickson Carr Library (formerly Kilmer Library) on the Livingston Campus. (“Livi” is the nickname that current students have given to the Livingston Campus, which has underdone much transformation in the years since its first students studied there.)

The program is being organized by the Rutgers University–New Brunswick Libraries and the Livingston Alumni Association, and will consist of a short panel discussion and a reception, where you’ll be able to browse display cases of Livingston College memorabilia, and meet up with fellow alumni, university staff, and students from the current Livingston Learning Community. We’ll also present the Riki Jacobs Livingston Pride Award to Eshan Kaul, SEBS’19, RWJMS’22.

Admission is free and light refreshments will be served. Guests are welcome!

A Conversation with Wall Street Journal National Security Correspondent Vivian Salama SC&I '00 LC '00

Join us on June 8, 2021 at 7 p.m. Eastern for a conversation with Vivian Salama SC&I ’00 LC ’00, who covers national security for The Wall Street Journal, based in Washington. 

Register here: https://www.cvent.com/d/3jq5j4

This event is jointly sponsored by the Livingston Alumni Association and Rutgers School of Communication and Information Alumni Association. 

Salama has covered U.S. foreign policy and national security issues for nearly two decades, reporting from more than 80 countries. A native of New York, she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Rutgers University, a master’s degree in Middle East politics from Columbia University and a law degree from Georgetown University.  Salama previously covered the Trump White House and national security for the Wall Street Journal, CNN and NBC. Before moving to Washington, she served as Baghdad bureau chief for the Associated Press, during which time she covered the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, as well as Iran’s growing influence across the region. She also covered the refugee and IDP crisis spurred by the violence, visiting camps across the Middle East. The experience inspired Salama to write a children’s book The Long Journey Home about an innocent Syrian boy who is forced to flee his home because of the war.

Over the course of her career, she has called Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, Israel and the Palestinian territories and the United Arab Emirates home, but has also reported more broadly from five continents, with extensive experience in several East Asian countries as well.
