NEW BRUNSWICK – If you’re a Rutgers student, chances are you’ve had a frustrating month.
With the semester winding down, and with finals looming, internet and wi-fi services at the New Brunswick campus were crippled last week by a cyber attack, the second in less than two months.
While university officials worked to restore service, students flocked to area coffee shops in search of working wi-fi. Others began using their smartphones as wi-fi hotspots, racking up larger service fees. And for nearly an entire week, social media was awash in scarlet-tinged exasperation.
Becoming more unstable than Rutgers Internet services 🙂

With internet service now mostly restored, university authorities may be looking to lighten the mood with humor.
On May 1, the university posted a video of a handful of Rutgers professors reading anonymous student reviews posted to a “Rate My Professors” website.
“He is a bro,” says Michael Rossi, reading one student’s assessment of his work. “If you’re a bro, and you know about bro’s, then you’ll like this teacher.
“I can add that to my list of titles,” Rossi deadpans in the video. “Ph.D, instructor and now, well, bro.”
