The Postcards for Next Year Project was inspired by the nostalgia for our familiar spaces on campus. Participating students chose to welcome incoming Rutgers students through postcards that capture a memory, a place, or a state of being. We hope that the global RELI community will continue to engage with this project in all the unique, creative ways it already has.
