NEW BRUNSWICK - Rutgers took the national spotlight last night when CNN aired a special on bullying that took place at the college's Livingston Student Center.
The special, which begins a weeklong forum on the topic, follows the suicide of former Rutgers student Tyler Clementi. Clementi took his own life after his roommate posted a video of an intimate encounter online.
Since Clementi's death, Rutgers has formed a civic engagement program which brings together students from diverse backgrounds to work together in underprivileged areas and learn more about each other's differences.
