BACKGROUND: “Science and tech schools don’t usually conjure up images of love and romance,” said Donna Minnich Spuhler, director of the NJIT Campus Center. “But dating is alive and well at NJIT. More than 400 social events are held annually, enabling students to interact. And they do.” But come out and see for yourself.
