This summer, Natasha will return to NJIT to take a class she's even more excited about: aeronautical engineering. >>
A group of 50 students from NJIT's New Jersey School of Architecture will spend spring break cleaning out houses in a flood-ravaged neighborhood in New Orleans. "Helping people rebuild their houses, and their lives, is an amazing feeling and a great experience,” says Thomas Reynolds, a senior at NJIT who helped organize the trip. “I'd much rather spend my vacation helping these people than sitting on a beach in Florida.” >>
