About Rutgers Day

GRADUATING SENIORS sign up to represent the Class of 2017 in the Rutgers Day and Alumni Parade at 10:30 a.m. on College Avenue.  Receive breakfast and a shirt to wear in the parade.

The 9th annual Rutgers Day will continue to have a statewide presence in 2017 with programming in Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark. There is something for everyone at each location! Experience hands-on learning activities, see exhibitions and demonstrations, enjoy entertaining stage performances, and more! We'll also celebrate Alumni Weekend with Rutgers graduates and their families. Taking place on the last Saturday in April each year, Rutgers Day is the annual spring event to attend.

All are welcome and admission is free!

Explore our proud history as a colonial college and our bright future as a comprehensive research institution. Whether you’re a first time guest or a frequent visitor, we invite you to get reacquainted with our great university and have some fun along the way!

Use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Drones

Rutgers University has instituted a ban on the recreational use of unmanned aerial vehicles, remotely operated model airplanes and helicopters, and other remotely operated flying vehicles on university property, and the recreational use of any university-owned UAV equipment under any circumstances in any location. Failure to comply with this ban may result in confiscation of the UAV, imposition of disciplinary measures, and possible state and/or federal penalties.
