After a hiatus imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, limiting it to two years of virtual presentations, Rutgers Day returned to Rutgers University–New Brunswick in the spring. More than 75,000 people attended the annual event, which showcases the extensive breadth and depth of teaching, research, and outreach at the university through hundreds of exhibits, programs, and performances. Among the participants were Rutgers president Jonathan Holloway and Rutgers–New Brunswick chancellor-provost Francine Conway, who also addressed crowds at the popular New Jersey Folk Festival on the Douglass campus and Ag Field Day on the Cook campus. The president also teamed up with Brian Strom, chancellor of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, to greet visitors at Rutgers Day’s new Rutgers Health Village on the Busch campus.
