Public invited to attend first-ever Rutgers Day

In recognition of Rutgers University’s unique relationship with the people of New Jersey, we are opening our doors to the public for the first-ever Rutgers Day on April 25. In difficult economic times, it is more important than ever to connect the university’s resources to those we serve. On Rutgers Day, all New Jerseyans are welcome to explore their state university and see firsthand how Rutgers’ teaching, research and service benefit the state.

In addition to the traditional Ag Field Day and New Jersey Folk Festival — both of which continue as part of Rutgers Day — there will be a lively mix of performances, tours, lectures, exhibits, demonstrations, and children’s programs on the university’s campuses in New Brunswick and Piscataway. Visitors will be able to experience the technology of the future, learn about workplace trends and in-demand skills, get tips on staying healthy, and find new ways for greener living. All events are free.

Please join us and bring your family, friends, and neighbors to share the excitement. The day begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m., rain or shine. For more information and to help plan your day at Rutgers, visit

I hope to see you at Rutgers Day on April 25.
