Manessa's Story

Manessa Lormejuste loves France, has a talent for science, and thinks a lot about healthy skincare.

So at Rutgers she designed the ideal undergraduate experience: She majored in chemistry, minored in French, and landed an internship in the laboratories of L’Oréal.

The Linden native graduated from the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) and started a full-time job at the L’Oréal facility in Clark, N.J., while continuing her education in a Master of Business and Science program at Rutgers with a concentration in personal care science.

She also participated in the Summer in Paris program through the Department of French and Study Abroad.

“It’s really the combination of experiences—the labs, the internship, the travel, and the people—that help you grow, develop, and reach your true potential," she said.
