Rutgers Day in Six Easy Steps

This is a guest post written by our Rutgers Day intern, Nancy Yang.

To celebrate our sixth annual Rutgers Day, here is an essential six-step guide to help you have the best experience.

Step One: Get connected.

Subscribe to all things Rutgers Day by liking our Facebook page and following @RutgersDay on Twitter. Receive exclusive updates and ask any questions you may have about the event. Brand new to Rutgers Day this year, our mobile app is ready for download on iPhone and Android. This intuitive application features interactive maps that allow you to create your own itinerary for Rutgers Day.

Step Two: Choose a campus.

Rutgers Day expands across three New Brunswick campuses: Busch , Cook/Douglass , and College Avenue. Our recommendation is to pick one campus to explore and check out another campus at the next Rutgers Day. Discover the unique program offerings of each campus through our website or through our new mobile app.

Step Three: Get there and get around.Students and visitors walking about on campus for Rutgers Day.

If you’re arriving by car, feel free to park in any of the Rutgers lots, which are free all day. Keep in mind that Hamilton Street on the College Avenue Campus will be closed, as will Lipman Drive and College Farm Road on Cook. The Northeast Corridor line also leads you right to the fun on College Avenue if you are using NJ Transit. When you get here, navigate the day like a Rutgers student by using our special shuttle traveling all around the campuses.

Step Four: Explore, explore, explore!

There are tons of new programs that are going to be held at Rutgers Day 2014. You can’t miss the Big Ten tent or the annual parade at 11 a.m., both on College Avenue. On Busch, stop by the many new programs by Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences and cheer on the Scarlet Knights at the Scarlet-White game at 4 p.m. at the stadium. If you love adorable animals, head to Cook/Douglass to get your fix.

Step Five: Fuel up.

With a variety of tasty food options, Rutgers Day will fulfill any craving. Check out Rutgers’ very own food truck, the Knight Wagon, for a delicious, on-the-go meal. There will also be food vendors offering everything from traditional carnival food favorites to café style coffee.

Step Six: Share your day with us.
