Welcome to the Countdown to Rutgers Day 2014 Blog

Rutgers Marching BandMark your calendar for Rutgers Day on Saturday, April 26.

The university’s annual welcome and show-and-tell for New Jersey residents of all ages promises something for everyone with nearly 500 programs. 

Learn all about big time academics, big time athletics and Rutgers’ transition into the Big Ten Conference on Voorhees Mall. Visitors can also catch the Scarlet and White spring football game in High Point Solutions Stadium at the end of the day. 

Take a closer look at the human brain and its complexities on the Busch Campus. Play games to learn about brain processing and learning, and perform surgery on model skulls with a little guidance from the region’s top neurosurgeons. 

Students from the East Asian, Spanish, African, Middle East and French special-interest houses in the Global Village Learning Community on the Douglass Campus will share their various language and cultural experiences. And don’t miss the New Jersey Folk Festival, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

Be certain to return to this blog frequently. We will provide the latest news and information in the weeks leading up to the big day. Check out the Meet the Bloggers section to learn more about our team. 

We also encourage you to download the new Rutgers Day mobile app, visit us on Facebook and Twitter, read our news release and browse the Rutgers Day website for more specific information about activities on each campus. 

See you soon!
