Ours is a digital culture in which visuals of our selves are routinely snapped, shared, and spread. Why has the selfie become a primary means of communicating information in the digital age, and what exactly is being communicated? How are our identities, communities, and digital culture shaped and affected? In this Byrne Seminar, under the direction of Professor Mary Chayko, twenty first-year Rutgers University students will explore these issues and share our findings, our ideas, and our selfies.
Enjoying a juicy burger at the student acclaimed best dining hall – the Livingston Dining Hall. As one can tell from my smile, I agree with the Rutgers students who love Livingston.
Nice view of Busch campus under a brilliant Rutgers sunset at Yurcak Field, the Rutgers soccer stadium, Friday, August 26. Reminds me that this community is as quiet and beautiful as it is often busy and boisterous.
Spent Friday Aug. 26 at the soccer stadium to see Rutgers women’s soccer team play Georgetown. They lost in overtime but it was a great effort. I’m a big sports fan and a three-time RU alum and now faculty, so I really love going to athletic events and seeing the spirit and heart of the RU athletic teams in person.
