Summer Refresher 2019


The 5th annual FLENJ Summer Refresher had its largest turnout ever!  Held this year at the new Academic Building on the Rutgers, New Brunswick campus, it was an amazing day with more than 20 professional development sessions.  Networking opportunities, exhibitors and vendors, and even a tour of the College Avenue campus to the new Language Center headquarters on Spring Street were several additional features.  Our Summer Refresher coordinator Kathy Stotler and the FLENJ board of directors put together a truly special day of PD for the more than 170 language educators and professionals in attendance.  Thank you for joining us!  Here are some photos that capture the spirit of this event!
