Have you ever wanted to take your passion for baking to the next level? Meet two #Rutgers alumnae with a recipe for success.
Gina Roselle Broschart, right, and Nancy Lee, left, didn’t know each other at Rutgers—but when they met as coworkers at a Somerset, New Jersey, catering company in 2009, they quickly learned they had a lot in common. Both trained at prestigious culinary schools after college, and both still felt a strong scarlet connection. In 2014, their dual expertise and passion for baking and pastry-making led them to cofound The Vintage Cake, an Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey, venue at which they create beautifully designed wedding cakes and other delicious works of art.
The Vintage Cake also offers classes for baking enthusiasts. In February, as part of the RUAA’s ongoing Alumni on Location event series, Broschart CC’06 and Lee RC’07 hosted Rutgers graduates and their friends and families. All 25 spots for the get-together were filled within a week of its announcement. .

“My teaching is a manifestation of what I have experienced in the world: my own failures and my own successes. I offer myself as a guide, but I’m not providing a road map to life. The students have to create those road maps for themselves. I just explain how I did it.”
Jordan Casteel, an assistant professor of fine arts at @RUNewark, is part of a new generation of African-American painters who are addressing the historical absence of nonwhites in Western painting. Read more about her work and perspective in the latest issue of #Rutgers Magazine.

“I tell students this is the coolest class you are going to take at Rutgers. You are going to get dirty, you are going to get uncomfortable but realize it’s in the pursuit of you learning something and leaving different than when you came.’' – Anthony Sacchetti

Sacchetti, a senior research animal worker, oversees the care of all 26 horses that live on the 150-acre @RutgersFarm, which spans both sides of Route 1 in New Brunswick. He is one of nine full-time support staff members who care for all 225 animals on the farm, including the cattle, goats, sheep and one of the largest pig herds in New Jersey. #RutgersExcellence #RutgersPride

Two @Rutgers_Camden alumni with degrees in graphic design and marketing were among 73 students singled out nationwide as “Students to Watch.” According to Graphic Design USA, a leading source for graphic design professionals, Kelley Brennan and Ruben Garcia-Ramirez are heirs apparent to make a splash in the #graphicdesign world. And it’s no surprise: Brennan CCAS’18, SBC’18 and Garcia-Ramirez CCAS’16 were mentored by Allan Espiritu CCAS’93, an associate @rucfinearts professor  who is the founder and director of @GDLOFT_phl, a collaborative design studio in Philadelphia. #RutgersPride #RutgersExcellence

The statue of William the Silent—a.k.a. Willie the Silent or Still Bill—has graced Voorhees Mall at @RutgersNB for nearly a century. The beloved bronze statue is still in great shape, but two #Rutgers alumni thought a makeover of the grounds around Willie was overdue. Don RC’69 and Penny DC’70 Pray (pictured left and center) approached the university in 2017, offering to fund an upgrade of Willie and his surroundings, coinciding with the 90th anniversary of the statue, which was dedicated in 1928. “We wanted to make Willie more accessible and visible—more the little jewel that it is,” says Don. The project—designed by Brian Clemson CC’87 (pictured right), the university landscape architect, and Katja Patchowsky SGS’18, a former graduate student in the landscape architecture program—will expand the fieldstone plaza around the statue’s base. Three new paths leading to Willie will invite visitors to get close to him and his loyal pup without trampling the grass. Six black iron benches and new lighting will also be added. And like any good makeover, in which less is more, tree limbs will be pruned so that admirers will have unobstructed views as they approach Willie.
