About

History

Established in 1766, the university is the eighth oldest higher education institution in the United States. 

Education

Many students that come to PALS want to be excellent students that leave PALS with stronger English language proficiency. According to our experience working with students, students that have the following habits tend to be more successful at PALS.

Research

Rutgers’ $736.8 million in annual research and development expenditures place us among the nation’s top public universities. Rutgers' R&D expenditures exceed those of all other New Jersey colleges and universities combined.

Career

At PALS, we believe that our role goes beyond teaching English to our students. As an institution, we actively put into action the Rutgers values of cherishing diversity, bridging cultures as well as fostering a collaborative learning environment.

Student Life

Campus life

Think of Rutgers University–New Brunswick, with about 43,000 students, as something like a lively and vibrant city. And just as the best small cities have a fun mix of neighborhoods, each with its own identity, so do the five smaller residential campuses of Rutgers University. At each campus, you’ll find everything you need—student centers, dining options, residence halls, computer labs, classrooms, libraries, student lounges, and lots more.

Sports facilities

Long before varsity athletics provided an outlet for youthful energies, the men of Rutgers, like so many of their counterparts at the other colonial colleges, were privately challenging students from other schools to meet them “on the banks” for a little friendly competition.

In fact, the Rutgers student body is credited with initiating the first intercollegiate contest in football in 1869 and later with starting collegiate ultimate frisbee in 1973. Both of these efforts were student driven and student supported with little, if any, assistance from the University.
