Miss New Jersey settles in as MBA student at Rutgers

State's 2009 winner Ashley Shaffer embraces next challenge

BY JOHN CHADWICK

But at Rutgers, Shaffer is enjoying relative anonymity as she focuses on grades rather than glamour. The 24-year-old Monmouth County resident entered the MBA program at the Rutgers Business School- Newark and New Brunswick in September, and has quickly forged a reputation as an energetic, involved student who helped start the program's first student blog.
