John Anciano
is a graduate of Rutgers University and spent plenty of time as a student being shuttled around by the campus buses. His 1st tour as an employee at his alma mater was from 2002-2007 as a Grant Accountant with the Division of Grant and Contract Accounting (now RFS) and then running the Business Office at the National Transit Institute within the Bloustein School. After leaving for private industry for a couple years, John’s return to Banks of the Old Raritan came in 2009 when he was hired by the Division of Life Sciences, where he is currently the Associate Director of Business Affairs. With 20+ years of his life dedicated to the university, John is a familiar with the area and fan of all things Rutgers, so feel free to reach out to pick his brain about things to do and places to eat around the five New Brunswick campuses, as well as the various Scarlet Knights athletic teams.

Geralyn Colvil is the department administrator in Art History and has been at Rutgers for over 20 years. She earned her degrees while working at Rutgers and is always happy to discuss the pros and cons of the non-traditional student. Geralyn’s office is in Voorhees Hall and is often filled with children’s toys and candy. The best antidote to bureaucracy is a Slinky.
