After thinking about what the soul of New Brunswick was I yelled Eureka! (figuratively, not literally). 7-eleven is the only place where both worlds of New Brunswick- Rutgers University and the actual city of New Brunswick- collide and cross paths. 7-eleven is the middle are between both where residents of both worlds come together. So in my opinion 7-eleven is more than just the store to get Big Gulps from and the store that is open all day, everyday; 7-eleven is the heart of the city.

While in the computer lab doing some of my own researching on internships and jobs, I met a recent RU grad who is having trouble finding a job post graduation. Melissa Boucaud tells me her story on the economy, its effect on her finding a job and the lack of prepping grads for the real world.
