When he’s not fulfilling his coursework obligations or taking part in a campus activity, Ricky Jackson works at the Hill Family Center for College Access at Rutgers–Camden. The center offers college and career guidance to Camden residents and their families with workshops on test preparation, conflict resolution, time management, writing, and organizational skills. “It’s all about lending people my ear and giving them my time to help them discover their goals and achieve them,” Jackson says. “I feel like I’m pretty good at that.”
