Let me make this clear: if it were not for the Department of Religion, I would not have had the strength, resolve, and support to survive these last four years at Rutgers, let alone New Jersey. I flew thousands of miles away from my homeland in Puerto Rico to study Psychology at Rutgers. However, my experience was initially frustrated: I wished to study clinical psychology, but the department's requirements demanded that I take a barrage of more experimental and biologically oriented courses in psychology. That, along with a maelstrom of personal difficulties in adjusting to life in the U.S. mainland, made school all the more troublesome.
