" Mulcahy wrote that the fans' actions "embarrassed the university, the alumni and Rutgers fans across the state.

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.

Some very basic ideas have shifted in Rutgers-Camden's financial aid philosophy this year. The school used to distribute aid on the basis of both financial need and merit; this year, it uncoupled the two into need-based grants and merit-based scholarships. As the first freshmen enter under the need-based program, Bridging the Gap, the university said first-year student enrollment has grown more than 50 percent, which it attributes largely to the program. "When I started, one of the things I saw was we had first-generation, low-income, working-class families, and the way our structure was set up when it came to even grant aid, it was based on having a merit component with it," said Craig Westman, who joined Rutgers-Camden in 2015 as head of enrollment management.

A New Jersey appeals court on Friday ordered a new trial for a former Rutgers University student convicted of using a webcam to spy on his roommate during an intimate encounter. In a 61-page ruling, the court tossed bias-intimidation counts against Dharun Ravi because of changes in state law, and said he was entitled to a new trial on the remaining charges. The three-judge panel agreed with defense arguments that Ravi should not have been charged with bias crimes and that bias evidence was wrongfully used during his trial in 2012.

For months, the news about job growth has been good, at least nationally. But, until recently, it seemed as though the American people hadn't yet received the memo. Now, finally, there's a shift, with optimism on the rise, a Rutgers University study shows. Annette Reeves, 58, is feeling the mood. After many years of unemployment or underemployment, she started a full-time job in July. "I feel extremely confident," Reeves said. Like others caught in the recession, Reeves had lost her job, her house, and - almost - her spirit, a common effect of joblessness.

Ask Melton to name his position and he responds: "Athlete. " It looks like the Year of the Running Back in South Jersey football. It looks like the Year of the Rutgers resurgence in recruiting, too.

In the resolutions adopting the bumps, the university's main governing body described the increases as "modest" and "moderate.

BRUSSELS - The terrorist who decimated a holiday crowd in Nice on Bastille Day was the latest incarnation of the nightmare confronting police in Brussels, Paris, Toulouse, Denmark, Orlando, and elsewhere. How do you prevent a lone wolf from wreaking havoc on a community when the police have no previous indication of his terrorist leanings? A team of security experts from Rutgers University, working with community leaders and police in Molenbeek, Brussels, thinks it has come up with an answer.

As Temple continues its moves toward an on-campus football stadium, here's a discussion the school's hierarchy should have: Would a campus stadium be opening a door Temple wants to keep shut? Like the rest of the American Athletic Conference, Temple would presumably jump at the chance to join a Power 5 league. That's where the money is. Right now, Temple isn't just the best option if a Power 5 league wants to add the Philadelphia market. It's the only option. And it's not far-fetched to think the Atlantic Coast Conference might someday want to add a local outpost.
