Delran graduate Erica "Boo" Schubert, The Inquirer's South Jersey female athlete of the year in 1999, is transferring from the University of Florida to Rutgers after two seasons of playing for the Gators' soccer team. Schubert will not have to sit out a year after receiving her release from Florida. In soccer, a player can transfer once without sitting out if the school the player is leaving signs a release form. Schubert is transferring because she suffers from a gastrointestinal disorder and feels it can be better treated closer to home.

Dennis Barth isn't overly impressed, even when so many are praising him for one of the more eye-opening baseball resurgences in South Jersey. It's hard to believe, but Barth is already in his fourth season as baseball coach of Rutgers Camden, which has more than held its own while playing in the ultra-competitive New Jersey Athletic Conference, among the best Division III leagues in the country. The Scarlet Raptors are 10-4 and ranked No. 8 in the American Baseball Coaches Association Division III Coaches Poll and No. 10 in the D3baseball.com poll.

"Thankfully, we don't have any games that week," she said. But what about practice? "Don't ask," she said with a laugh. "One step at a time. " Next week might be the only one of the season in which the makeup of her team becomes an inconvenience for Catrambone. The Eagles enter this season with 10 seniors in their starting lineup.

Bonilla-Santiago, director of the Community Leadership Center at Rutgers-Camden, said she began working at the university as an administrator, a job she said she did not like because it "didn't really allow her to make any changes. " She decided to get her Ph.D. in sociology, and then became a member of Rutgers-Camden's faculty. As an educator, she said, she faced obstacles rooted in covert prejudice and low expectations.

When Donald Trump retweeted a quotation attributed to him but actually uttered by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini - "It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep" - it was a victory for Gawker, which had set up the automated Twitter account to poke fun at the Republican front-runner. It was also perfect fodder for a new digital politics program at Rutgers-Camden, which melds political science with digital studies. "The digital is not incidental to the conversation; it is core to the conversation," said Jim Brown, the English professor who heads the Digital Studies Center at Rutgers-Camden.
