SOR: What were your thoughts about Rutgers before the event?
Josh Furman: I am a big college football fan and have been watching games for some time. I follow the Big East. They have become a better team over the last 4 to 5 years. I remember watching them in the big game against Louisville a few years ago.
SOR: Talk to me about what stood out to you most about your trip?
Josh Furman: I did not understand the concept of the APR before the visit. But when they explained how well they do academically and that they finished in the Top 5 in the nation in that department, that really made an impression. I also thought it was special to get to meet the Dean of the school.
SOR: Who are some of the people you got to interact with on your trip and what was your comfort level?
Josh Furman: We spent some time with Joe Lefeged and Coach Hewitt. Both spent a good amount of time showing us around the place. Then we got to sit down with Coach Schiano for about an hour. I think he is a great person. I believed in everything he said. He has a plan and is going to continue to turn the program in the right direction.
