Rutgers University-Camden Ready for First Rutgers Day

CamdenRDThanks to guest blogger Edward J. Moorhouse for this post.

At Rutgers University–Camden, we’re proud to be Rutgers in South Jersey, and that Scarlet Pride will shine brightly during our Rutgers Day experience!

On Saturday, April 30, we invite you to experience Rutgers in a uniquely South Jersey way as you stroll around our beautiful 40-acre campus in Camden’s University District near the historic Camden Waterfront. Kids of all ages will be invited to explore science, technology, the arts, world cultures, health, business, and more during interactive and immersive activities throughout the day.

At Rutgers Day in Camden, you’ll be able to:

  • Be a part of art history. Have your photo taken and inserted in classic works of art such as the famous expressionist painting “The Scream!” After that, visit the Rutgers–Camden photo booth and take a selfie with poet Walt Whitman, pretend you’re on an African safari, or even hang out with the Scarlet Raptor.
  • Wear judicial robes, hop on the judge’s bench, and hold court. Children will be able to explore the moot courtroom at the Rutgers Law School. Court is now in session!
  • Explore Rutgers throughout time. Learn about the 250 year history of Rutgers University by participating in a campus-wide scavenger hunt. Our Rutgers Day guests will also have the opportunity to make their mark on a Rutgers 250 mural using wood blocks and ink.
  • Take to the fields. Join Rutgers–Camden resident assistants for volleyball, football, wiffleball, Frisbee, and more!
  • Make Rutgers your own. Decorate your own graduation cap, get a Rutgers “Spirit R” temporary tattoo, and create your own Rutgers shield!

In addition to those activities, be sure to take in one of the 10-minute concerts and theater program performances in the Black Box Studio and the Gordon Theater; learn about how Rutgers–Camden students help the Camden community through civic engagement; explore the Stedman Gallery; and see how Rutgers–Camden students take learning beyond the classroom.

Rutgers–Camden is a supportive and energetic community that comes alive with school spirit. Visit here for information about all of Rutgers–Camden’s Rutgers Day activities. We hope to see you there!
