Rutgers’ campuses are located in the great state of New Jersey, one of America’s 13 original colonies. Packed with history, firsts—and people—it is where Washington crossed the Delaware, Edison invented the electric light, and the boardwalk and baseball were born. It is home to 8.7 million residents—the small but powerful sweet spot between New York and Pennsylvania.
With its tremendous density and diversity—of terrain, communities, arts and culture, transportation, and businesses—New Jersey is now and future America in microcosm, the ideal proving ground for new ideas. And Rutgers has always been its trusted partner in moving forward.
