Traditional Events Committee Co-Chairs

On Sunday, December 4, Douglass’ Annual Yule Log Ceremony took place in Vorhees Chapel. Stair seniors, The Traditional Events Committee, and the Voorhees Chapel Choir led the community in a program filled with songs, readings, and traditions drawn from a diverse mix of cultures and religions. This year, Julianne D'Avirro Humphrey DRC’23 and Amanda Shapiro DRC’23 led the planning of the event as the student co-chairs of the Douglass Traditional Events Committee.

 "We are happy to have helped continue this long-standing tradition and as seniors we are excited to pass it on to our next co-chairs,” said the duo.

On October 14, 2022, STEM research students, Rutgers faculty, Douglass staff, and distinguished guests gathered to share in an evening of knowledge, new ideas, and celebration of Douglass students in STEM. The annual Project SUPER Undergraduate Research Symposium and this year’s STEM Lecture were held in-person for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

“The symposium made my research experience notable,” said Isha D. Patel DRC'24, a cell biology and neuroscience major and Project SUPER student. “I felt confident in my work and that I was able to educate others of the purpose my research serves for the greater community. The symposium helped to bring together professionals of various fields to empower growing women like us to learn from each other.” Click here to read more!

Students at Conference

Each year, The 2022 Christiana Foglio DC'84 Douglass Career Conference serves as a launchpad for the passions, aspirations, and goals of current Douglass students. Throughout a full day of speakers, panels, and networking events, students begin to chart their course for in and beyond college. The Career Conference, where students make connections with women professionals in a variety of industries, is essential for shaping and refining how a student’s future may look.

Dear Students,

Welcome to the Fall 2022 semester. On behalf of the staff at Douglass, we’re excited to have you back!

Research shows that students that have the most positive college experience, and stay through graduation, are those who find a sense of connection. With this in mind, I urge you to fully engage in all that Douglass has to offer.

Sacred Path

This coming month, Douglass will welcome the Class of 2026 to campus.
