PERFORMING AT YOUR PEAK
An interactive session that will explore the obstacles that hinder students from obtaining their “peak” academic performance including lack of exercise, excessive stress, alcohol/drug use, emotional difficulties and procrastination.  This session will provide an opportunity to talk with current students who have found ways to navigate the system at Rutgers-Camden and take advantage of the services offered.
 
CAMPUS CARNIVAL
We will end the day with food trucks, activities, giveaways, and over 80 vendors.  During the fair, you will be able to interact with student clubs & organizations, greek organizations, staff, departments, and a number of local vendors
