Rutgers University Student Assembly Opposes Branch Closing
Rutgers University Student Assembly members are taking a stand against the university branch location closing of the former $2 million Rutgers University Student and Alumni Credit Union, the university’s newspaper reported Thursday. RUSACU was recently acquired by the $2.03 billion, Basking Ridge, N.J.-based Affinity FCU.
RUSA members voiced their concerns over RUSAFCU’s closing at a campus meeting Wednesday, The Daily Targum said. RUSACU signed a contract to merge with Affinity FCU in July 2010, leading to the consolidation of RUSAFCU’s board of directors and an upcoming move of the credit union’s operating location from the Rutgers Student Center to an Affinity location, Rutgers University Committee chair Kristen Clarke told The Daily Targum.
