Rutgers Spirit is Alive and Well

Rutgers pride is shown by almost 3,000 homemade cupcakes.

Rutgers pride is shown by almost 3,000 homemade cupcakes.

Those walking through the Voorhees Mall today are surrounded by a sea of Rs – adorned with flowers and glitter, ribbons and bows – letting those visiting the university know that Rutgers has a proud strong history.

“Everyone really seems to enjoy this area,” says Diana Uveges, business manager in the Recreation Department whose area built the Rocking in the Boat R that plays music and allows children to catch fish for prizes.

The garden area is filled with Rs of all different sizes and decorations created by various units and departments at Rutgers.  Sports, student life, graduation, libraries, and graduate studies are just some of the areas that are taking part in the R-Garden and offering Rutgers Day goers the opportunity to share in Rutgers pride.

And if you’re hungry, the Rutgers Bake Shop has baked 8,000 delicious red and white cupcakes to share with those who come to Rutgers Day. Rutgers bakers have been busy all week, says Jackie Williams who works in the bakeshop and spent about an hour early this morning arranging about 2,800 of the cupcakes in the R-Garden to help welcome those who stop by.  The other 5,000 yummy cupcakes are being offered to those who visit the Busch campus and other Rutgers Day attractions.
