RU READY is a game that portrays the life of incoming freshmen at Rutgers University. Located conveniently on the back of the Rutgers "R" that comes in each dorm, the purpose of the game is to see who can "survive" the transition from high school to college, while learning about the different aspects of the university. The parties, exams, and even the buses can be overwhelming for those who are unfamiliar with them. Will you make it past freshman year? Roll the dice and find out.
THE BUS SYSTEM
Riding the buses to get to class is something that you have to get used too, especially if you're not used to using public transportation. RU READY is a fun, easy way to help answer many of the questions that new students might have on how to get around.
EXAMS, EXAMS, AND MORE EXAMS
Exams might be the most stressful thing in college, with many classes having one or two exams determining a student's grade. The key is time management and making smart decisions about studying, some of the same choices you have to make in RU READY.
From our nationally recognized sports programs to our respected academic programs, there's a lot to be proud of to be a student here at Rutgers University. While it may be overwhelming at first, freshman year is an incredible time of change, but it's important to have fun with it. We hope that incoming students can learn about the different aspects of Rutgers in a fun way, through playing RU READY.
