For two hours on Saturday morning, Rutgers President Richard L. McCormick opened his office to any visitor who wanted to meet him.

Many people took him up on the offer, with steady lines forming throughout the morning.

“Thanks for visiting Rutgers today,” he told a family from Highland Park. “Have a great day; there are more than 500 things to see and do out there.”

McCormick said the visitors included students, parents alumni and many others who just wanted to extend well wishes.

“It’s wonderful,” he said. “There are so many things to do on Rutgers Day, so it’s nice to have people come by.”
