Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
New Jersey
(/ˈrʌtɡərz/), commonly referred to as Rutgers
Rutgers
University, Rutgers, or RU, is an American public research university and is the largest institution of higher education in New Jersey. Rutgers
Rutgers
was originally chartered as Queen's College on November 10, 1766. It is the eighth-oldest college in the United States
United States
and one of the nine colonial colleges chartered before the American Revolution.[10][11] The college was renamed Rutgers
Rutgers
College in 1825[12] in honor of Colonel Henry Rutgers
Henry Rutgers
(1745–1830), a New York City landowner, philanthropist and former military officer, whose $5,000 bond donation to the school allowed it to reopen after years of financial difficulty.[13] For most of its existence, Rutgers
Rutgers
was a private liberal arts college affiliated with the Dutch Reformed Church. In 1864, the college expanded its role in research and instruction in agriculture, engineering, and science when it was named as the state's sole land-grant college under the Morrill Act of 1862.[14] In 1924, it gained university status with the introduction of graduate education and further expansion.[14] However, Rutgers
Rutgers
evolved into a coeducational public research university after being designated "The State University of New Jersey" by the New Jersey
New Jersey
Legislature in laws enacted in 1945 and 1956.[15] It is one of only two colonial colleges that later became public universities.[a] Rutgers, however, remains something of a public-private hybrid, in particular retaining certain "private rights" against unilateral changes in its governance, name, and structure that the state might otherwise want to impose.[16] Rutgers
Rutgers
has three campuses located throughout New Jersey: the original New Brunswick campus in New Brunswick and adjacent Piscataway, the Newark campus, and the Camden campus. Rutgers
Rutgers
is the statutorily designated state university of New Jersey. The university has additional facilities elsewhere in the state.[17] Instruction is offered by 9,000 faculty members in 175 academic departments to over 45,000 undergraduate students and more than 20,000 graduate and professional students.[7] The university is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools[18] and is a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance,[19] the Association of American Universities[20] and the Universities Research Association.[21] The New Brunswick campus was categorized by Howard and Matthew Green in their book titled The Public Ivies: America's Flagship Public Universities (2001) as a Public Ivy.[22]

Rutgers
University campus in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Colonial period[edit] Two decades after the College of New Jersey
New Jersey
(now known as Princeton University) was established in 1746 by the New Light Presbyterians, ministers of the Dutch Reformed Church, seeking autonomy in ecclesiastical affairs in the American colonies, sought to establish a college to train those who wanted to become ministers within the church.[23][24] Through several years of effort by the Rev. Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen (1691–1747) and Rev. Jacob Rutsen Hardenbergh (1736–1790), later the college's first president, Queen's College received its charter on November 10, 1766 from New Jersey's last Royal Governor, William Franklin
William Franklin
(1730–1813), the illegitimate son of Founding Father Benjamin Franklin.[23] The original charter established the college under the corporate name the trustees of Queen's College, in New-Jersey, named in honor of King George III's Queen consort, Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz
Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz
(1744–1818), and created both the college and the Queen's College Grammar School, intended to be a preparatory school affiliated and governed by the college.[24] The Grammar School, today the private Rutgers
Rutgers
Preparatory School, was a part of the college community until 1959.[24][25] New Brunswick was chosen as the location over Hackensack because the New Brunswick Dutch had the support of the Anglican
Anglican
population, making the royal charter easier to obtain. The original purpose of Queen's College was to "educate the youth in language, liberal, the divinity, and useful arts and sciences" and for the training of future ministers for the Dutch Reformed Church[24][25][26] The college admitted its first students in 1771—a single sophomore and a handful of first-year students taught by a lone instructor—and granted its first degree in 1774, to Matthew Leydt.[24][25] Despite the religious nature of the early college, the first classes were held at a tavern called the Sign of the Red Lion.[27] When the Revolutionary War broke out and taverns were suspected by the British as being hotbeds of rebel activity, the college abandoned the tavern and held classes in private homes.[24][25] Financial troubles and a benefactor[edit]

In its early years, due to a lack of funds, Queen's College was closed for two extended periods. Early trustees considered merging the college with the College of New Jersey, in Princeton (the measure failed by one vote) and later considered relocating to New York City.[24][25] In 1808, after raising $12,000, the college was temporarily reopened and broke ground on a building of its own, called "Old Queens", designed by architect John McComb, Jr.[28] The college's third president, the Rev. Ira Condict, laid the cornerstone on April 27, 1809. Shortly after, the New Brunswick Theological Seminary, founded in 1784, relocated from Brooklyn, New York, to New Brunswick, and shared facilities with Queen's College (and the Queen's College Grammar School, as all three institutions were then overseen by the Reformed Church in America).[24][25] During those formative years, all three institutions fit into Old Queens. In 1830, the Queen's College Grammar School moved across the street, and in 1856, the Seminary relocated to a seven-acre (28,000 m2) tract less than one-half miles (800 m) away.[24][25] After several years of closure resulting from an economic depression after the War of 1812, Queen's College reopened in 1825 and was renamed " Rutgers
Rutgers
College" in honor of American Revolutionary War
American Revolutionary War
hero Colonel Henry Rutgers
Henry Rutgers
(1745–1830). According to the Board of Trustees, Colonel Rutgers
Rutgers
was honored because he epitomized Christian values. A year after the school was renamed, it received two donations from its namesake: a $200 bell still hanging from the cupola of Old Queen's and a $5,000 bond (equivalent to $108,000 in 2017) which placed the college on sound financial footing. Land-grant college[edit] Rutgers
Rutgers
College became the land-grant college of New Jersey
New Jersey
in 1864 under the Morrill Act of 1862, resulting in the establishment of the Rutgers
Rutgers
Scientific School, featuring departments of agriculture, engineering, and chemistry.[24][25] The Rutgers
Rutgers
Scientific School would expand over the years to grow into the New Jersey
New Jersey
Agricultural Experiment Station (1880) and divide into the College of Engineering (1914) and the College of Agriculture
Agriculture
(1921).[24][25] Rutgers
Rutgers
created the New Jersey
New Jersey
College for Women in 1918, and the School of Education in 1924.[24][25] With the development of graduate education, and the continued expansion of the institution, the collection of schools became Rutgers
Rutgers
University in 1924.[25] Rutgers
Rutgers
College continued as a liberal arts college within the university. Later, University College (1945) was founded to serve part-time, commuting students and Livingston College
Livingston College
(1969) was created by the Rutgers
Rutgers
Trustees, ensuring that the interests of ethnically diverse New Jersey
New Jersey
students were met.[24][25] State University[edit] Rutgers
Rutgers
was designated the State University of New Jersey
New Jersey
by acts of the New Jersey
New Jersey
Legislature in 1945 and 1956.[29] Shortly after, the University of Newark (1935) was merged with Rutgers
Rutgers
in 1946, as were the College of South Jersey and South Jersey Law School, in 1950. These two institutions became Rutgers University–Newark
Rutgers University–Newark
and Rutgers University–Camden, respectively. On September 10, 1970, after much debate, the Board of Governors voted to admit women into Rutgers College.[24][25] There were setbacks in the growth of the university. In 1967, the Rutgers
Rutgers
Physics
Physics
Department had a Centers of Excellence Grant from the NSF which allowed the Physics
Physics
Department to hire several faculty each year and become a more prominent institution. These faculty were to be paid by the grant for three years, but after that time any faculty hired with the Associate or Full Professor designation would become tenured. The Governor and the Chancellor forced Rutgers
Rutgers
to lose this grant by rejecting these faculty as tenured. In 1970, the newly formed Rutgers
Rutgers
Medical School hired major faculty members from other institutions. In 1971, the Governor's Office separated Rutgers
Rutgers
Medical School from Rutgers
Rutgers
University and made it part of New Jersey
New Jersey
College of Medicine and Dentistry, and many faculty left the Medical School, including the dean of the Medical School, Dr. Dewitt Stetten, who later became the Director of the National Institutes of Health. As a result of the separation of the Medical School from Rutgers
Rutgers
University, graduate PhD programs that had been started in the medical center were lost, and students had to seek other institutions to finish their degrees. Although Rutgers
Rutgers
is a public university, it retains -- as the successor to the private college founded and chartered in 1766 -- some important private rights and protections from unilateral state efforts to change its fundamental character and mission.[30] Today[edit]

Prior to 1982, separate liberal arts faculties existed in the several separate "residential colleges" (Rutgers, Douglass, Livingston, University, and Cook colleges) at Rutgers–New Brunswick. In 1982, under president Edward J. Bloustein, the liberal arts faculties of these five institutions were centralized into one college, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, which itself had no students. The separate residential colleges persisted for students, and while instructors for classes were now drawn from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, separate standards for admission, good standing, and graduation still continued for students, depending on which residential college they were enrolled in. In the fall of 2007, Rutgers, Douglass, Livingston, and University Colleges, along with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences were merged into the new "School of Arts and Sciences" with one set of admissions criteria, curriculum, and graduation requirements. At this time, the liberal arts components of Cook College were absorbed into the School of Arts and Sciences as well, while the other aspects of that college remained, but as the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. These changes in 2007 ended the 241-year history of Rutgers
Rutgers
College as a distinct institution. In 2013, most of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey was integrated with Rutgers
Rutgers
University and, along with several existing Rutgers
Rutgers
units, was reformed as Rutgers
Rutgers
Biomedical and Health Sciences.[32][33] This merger attached the New Jersey
New Jersey
Medical School and Robert Wood Johnson Medical School
Robert Wood Johnson Medical School
to Rutgers
Rutgers
University. On June 20, 2012, the outgoing president of Rutgers
Rutgers
University, Richard L. McCormick
Richard L. McCormick
announced that Rutgers
Rutgers
will "...integrate five acres along George Street between Seminary Place and Bishop Place into the College Avenue Campus."[34] Most of the block had been occupied by the New Brunswick Theological Seminary. Rutgers

changed part of its alma mater, "On the Banks of the Old Raritan". Where the lyrics had stated, "My father sent me to old Rutgers, and resolved that I should be a man," now they state, "From far and near we came to Rutgers, and resolved to learn all that we can."[35] Rutgers
Rutgers
celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2016. On May 15 President Barack Obama

University president[edit] See also: List of Rutgers
Rutgers
University presidents Since 1785, twenty men have served as the institution's president, beginning with the Reverend Jacob Rutsen Hardenbergh, a Dutch Reformed clergyman who was responsible for establishing the college.[36][37] Before 1930, most of the university's presidents were clergymen affiliated with Christian denominations in the Reformed tradition (either Dutch Reformed, Presbyterian, or German Reformed).[37][38] Two presidents were alumni of Rutgers
Rutgers
College—the Rev. William H. S. Demarest (Class of 1883) and Philip Milledoler Brett (Class of 1892).[39][40] The current president is Robert L. Barchi, M.D., Ph.D. (b. 1946), an accomplished neuroscientist and board-certified physician.[41][42][43] Dr. Barchi previously served as president of the Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia
Philadelphia
and as provost of the University of Pennsylvania[44] before being appointed by the university's two governing boards on April 11, 2012 to succeed outgoing president Richard L. McCormick
Richard L. McCormick
(b. 1947), the son of popular Rutgers
Rutgers
history professor and college dean Richard P. McCormick. Barchi assumed the office on September 1, 2012[45][46] and his tenure has so far involved overseeing the university's acquisition of a medical school and related research and clinical facilities after a merger with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, a redevelopment of the College Avenue Campus, and a transition of the Scarlet Knights athletic program to the Big Ten Conference
Big Ten Conference
(beginning in 2014). The president serves in an ex officio capacity as a presiding officer within the university's 59-member board of trustees and its eleven-member board of governors,[47] and is appointed by these boards to oversee day-to-day operations of the university across its campuses. He is charged with implementing "board policies with the help and advice of senior administrators and other members of the university community."[48] The president is responsible only to those two governing boards—there is no oversight by state officials. Frequently, the president also occupies a professorship in his academic discipline and engages in instructing students. Governing boards[edit]

Governance at Rutgers
Rutgers
University rests with a Board of Trustees consisting of 59 members, and a Board of Governors consisting of 11 members: 6 appointed by the Governor of New Jersey
New Jersey
and 5 chosen by the Board of Trustees.[49][50][51] The trustees constitute chiefly an advisory body to the board of governors and are the fiduciary overseers of the property and assets of the university that existed before the institution became the State University of New Jersey
New Jersey
in 1945. The initial reluctance of the trustees (still acting as a private corporate body) to cede control of certain business affairs to the state government for direction and oversight caused the state to establish the board of governors in 1956.[52] Today, the board of governors maintains much of the corporate control of the university. The members of the Board of Trustees are voted upon by different constituencies or appointed. "Two faculty and two students are elected by the University Senate as nonvoting representatives. The 59 voting members are chosen in the following way as mandated by state law: 28 charter members (of whom at least three shall be women), 20 alumni members nominated by the Nominating Committee of the Board of Trustees, and five public members appointed by the governor of the state with confirmation by the New Jersey
New Jersey
State Senate. The six members of the Board of Governors appointed by the governor also serve as members of the Board of Trustees. Of the 28 charter seats, three are reserved for students with full voting rights."[53] Affiliations[edit]

Locations and divisions[edit] Rutgers
Rutgers
University has three campuses in the state of New Jersey. The New Brunswick Campus located in the city of New Brunswick and adjacent Piscataway is the largest campus of the university. The Newark Campus in Newark, and the Camden Campus in Camden are located in the northern and southern parts of the state, respectively.[54] Combined, these campuses comprise 33 degree-granting schools and colleges, offering undergraduate, graduate and professional levels of study.[54] The university is centrally administered from New Brunswick, although Chancellors at the Newark and Camden campuses hold significant autonomy for some academic issues.[55] Rutgers–New Brunswick[edit] Main article: Rutgers
Rutgers
University–New Brunswick The New Brunswick Campus (or Rutgers–New Brunswick) is the largest campus and the site of the original Rutgers
Rutgers
College. Spread across six municipalities in Middlesex County, New Jersey, it lies chiefly in the City of New Brunswick and adjacent Piscataway, right along Route 18, and is composed of five smaller campuses and a few buildings in downtown New Brunswick. The historic College Avenue Campus
College Avenue Campus
is close to downtown New Brunswick and includes the seat of the University, Old Queens and other nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century buildings that constitute the Queens Campus
Queens Campus
and Voorhees Mall. Its proximity to New Brunswick's train station and numerous food vendors located downtown, in addition to a large amount of off-campus housing and fraternity and sorority houses make this a popular weekend destination. Across the city, Douglass Campus and Cook Campus are intertwined with each other and are often referred to collectively as the Cook/Douglass Campus. Cook Campus has extensive farms and woods that reach into North Brunswick and East Brunswick. Separated by the Raritan River are Busch Campus, in Piscataway, and Livingston Campus, also mainly in Piscataway but including remote sections of land extending into Edison and the Borough of Highland Park. The Busch Campus is noted as the home of Rutgers' highly ranked Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, as well as the golf course and football stadium. The Livingston campus is home to the RAC, a trapezoidal building which currently acts as home for many sports teams, notably the Men's Basketball
Basketball
Team. Additionally, this campus has undergone many renovations and is regarded as the most "modern" campus. The campus entrance is delineated by an all-glass business building known as the "100 Rock". From this building's fifth floor lounge, one can see the distant skyline of New York City on many clear days. Featuring (arguably) the best dining hall and top notch housing, Livingston attracts many students who may want a quieter city-life experience than the one on College Avenue. Rutgers Campus Buses

transport students between the various campuses.[56] As of Fall 2010, the New Brunswick-Piscataway campuses include 19 undergraduate, graduate and professional schools, including the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Communication and Information, the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, the School of Engineering, the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, the Graduate School, the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, the Graduate School of Education, the School of Management and Labor Relations, Mason Gross School of the Arts, the College of Nursing, the Rutgers
Rutgers
Business School and the School of Social Work. As of 2012, 40,434 students (31,593 undergraduates and 8,841 graduate students) were enrolled at the New Brunswick-Piscataway campus.[6] The New Brunswick-Piscataway campus includes a new state-of-the-art Business School building on the Livingston Campus that accommodates a growing number of students pursuing a business degree. Rutgers–Newark[edit] Main article: Rutgers

Biomedical and Health Sciences[edit] Main article: Rutgers
Rutgers
Biomedical and Health Sciences The Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) is a division of the university that serves as an umbrella organization for schools, centers, and institutes from Rutgers
Rutgers
University and the old University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. The organization was incorporated into the university following the 2013 merger of Rutgers and the UMDNJ.[57] While its various facilities are spread across several locations statewide, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences is considered a "campus" for certain organizational purposes, such as the appointment of a separate Chancellor.[58][59][60][61] RBHS comprises nine schools and other research centers and institutes including; Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research, New Jersey
New Jersey
Medical School, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, College of Nursing, School of Nursing, School of Dental Medicine, School of Health Related Professions, the School of Public Health, Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine, Environmental and the Occupational Health Sciences Institute. The programs are offered at different location sites across New Jersey
New Jersey
in New Brunswick, Newark, Camden, Stratford and Scotch Plains. Rutgers-Online[edit] As of Fall 2015, Rutgers
Rutgers
offers a total of 11 fully online degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels.[62] An integral part of the institution's academic fabric, and a priority in the university's strategic development initiatives, these programs constitute, collectively, " Rutgers
Rutgers
Online." Online degree programs at Rutgers
Rutgers
must meet the same academic expectations, in terms of both teaching and learning outcomes, as traditional on-campus programs. Off-campus[edit] Rutgers
Rutgers
offers classes at several off-campus sites in affiliation with community colleges and other state colleges throughout New Jersey.[63] These partnerships are designed to enable students to achieve a seamless transfer to Rutgers, and to take all of their Rutgers
Rutgers
classes in a select number of the most popular majors at the community college campus. The collaborative effort provides access to Rutgers

is one of the nine colonial chartered colleges established before the American Revolution. In 1864, the New Jersey
New Jersey
Legislature selected Rutgers
Rutgers
as New Jersey's sole land-grant college which expanded the school's offerings in the fields of practical agriculture, science, military science and engineering. The state legislature designated Rutgers
Rutgers
to be New Jersey's state university by acts passed in 1945 and 1956. It is the only university in the United States
United States
able to boast all three designations.[65] The university offers more than 100 distinct bachelor, 100 master, and 80 doctoral and professional degree programs across 175 academic departments, 29 degree-granting schools and colleges, 16 of which offer graduate programs of study. Rutgers
Rutgers
is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools
Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools
(1921), and in 1989, became a member of the Association of American Universities, an organization of the 62 leading research universities in North America.[66] Rutgers–New Brunswick

Alexander Library is also a Federal Depository Library, maintaining a large collection of government documents, which contains United States, New Jersey, foreign, and international government publications.[71] The Library of Science and Medicine (LSM) on the Busch Campus in Piscataway houses the University's collection in behavioral, biological, earth, and pharmaceutical sciences and engineering. LSM also serves as a designated depository library for government publication regarding science, and owns a U.S. patent collection and patent search facility.[72] It was officially established as the Library of Science and Medicine in July 1964 although the beginning of the development of a library for science started in 1962. The current character of LSM is a university science library also serving a medical school.[73] On the New Brunswick-Piscataway campus, in addition to Alexander Library, many individual disciplines have their own libraries, including Alcohol Studies, Art History, Chemistry, Mathematics, Music, and Physics.

Rutgers' facilities across the four campuses include a golf course, botanical gardens, working agricultural, horse, dairy, and sustainable farms, a creamery, an ecological preserve with multiple use trails, television and radio studios, theaters, museums, athletic facilities, helipads, a makerspace, and more. Admissions and financial aid[edit] U.S. News & World Report considers the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers
Rutgers
University to be a "more selective" school in terms of the rigor of its admissions processes.[80] For the Class of 2017 (enrolling fall 2013), the New Brunswick campus received 30,631 applications and accepted 18,230 (59.5%).[81] The number enrolling was 6,402; the yield rate (the percentage of accepted students who enroll) was 35.1%.[81] The middle 50% range of SAT
SAT
scores was 520–640 for critical reading, 570–690 for math, and 540–650 for writing.[81] For the Class of 2020 (enrolling fall 2016), the New Brunswick campus accepted 58% of the 35,340 applicants. The number enrolling was 7,706; the yield rate was 37%.[82] As a state university, Rutgers
Rutgers
charges two separate rates for tuition and fees depending on an enrolled student's residency. The Office of Institutional Research and Academic Planning estimates that costs in-state student of attending Rutgers

would amount to $25,566 for an undergraduate living on-campus and $30,069 for a graduate student. For an out-of-state student, the costs rise to $38,228 and $39,069 respectively.[6] As of the 2012–2013 academic school year, the cost of attendance for in-state students is $13,073, $26,393 for out-of-state students and $11,412 for Room and Board.[83] In the 2010–2011 academic year, undergraduate students at Rutgers, through a combination of federal (53.5%), state (23.6%), university (18.1%), and private (4.8%) scholarship, loans, and grants, received $492,260,845 of financial aid. 81.4% of all undergraduates, or 34,473 students, received some form of financial aid. During the same period, graduate students, through a combination of federal (61.9%), state (1.8%), university (34.5%), and private (1.9%) scholarship, loans, and grants received $182,384,256 of financial aid. 81.5% of all graduate students, or 11,852 students received some form of financial aid.[6] In 2007, the university's office for Enrollment Management launched the Rutgers
Rutgers
Future Scholars Program as an initiative to help 7th graders from low-income families achieve academic success and be the first in their families to go to college. The program targets students from the school systems of Rutgers's hometowns, New Brunswick/Piscataway, Newark, and Camden. Once admitted, the students receive mentoring and college prep courses each summer leading up to the year of their college applications. If admitted to the university, they are given a full tuition scholarship for four years of undergraduate study. The program has been very successful and currently admits as many as 200 new 7th graders each year with the most of the original 200 now attending the University as undergraduates.[84] Rankings[edit]

Rutgers
University offers a variety of housing options. On the New Brunswick-Piscataway campus, students are given the option of on-campus housing in both traditional dorms or apartments. Freshman students, however, are allowed only a dorm, while upperclassmen have a wider array of on-campus housing choices, like apartments, but must apply for on-campus housing through the Rutgers

Rutgers
Rutgers
University has a student government which controls funding to student groups. The student government is made up of campus councils and professional school councils. Those councils then send representatives to the student assembly as well as the university senate. An example of these campus councils is the University College Council, which represents adult, part-time, and military veteran students. Rutgers
Rutgers
hosts over 700 student organizations; among the first student groups was the first college newspaper in the United States. The Political Intelligencer and New Jersey

Adviser began publication at Queen's College in 1783, and ceased operation in 1785.[25] Continuing this tradition is the university's current college newspaper, The Daily Targum, established in 1869, which is the second-oldest college newspaper published in the United States, after The Dartmouth

Rutgers
University is home to chapters of many Greek organizations, and a significant percentage of the undergraduate student body is active in Greek life. Several fraternities and sororities maintain houses for their chapters in the area of Union Street (known familiarly as "Frat Row") in New Brunswick, within blocks of Rutgers' College Avenue Campus. Chapters of Zeta Psi

fraternity, founded at Rutgers
Rutgers
College in 1879, was the first fraternity at Rutgers
Rutgers
to own a fraternity house, or "Lodge", purchased in 1887. The fraternity today still owns and occupies the same property at 114 College Avenue. Today, there are over 50 fraternities and sororities on the New Brunswick-Piscataway campus, ranging from traditional to historically African-American, Hispanic, Multicultural, and Asian interest organizations.[117] The New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University has a chapter of the only active co-ed pre-medical fraternity, Phi Delta Epsilon, as of 2008.[118] Greek organizations are governed by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs. Twelve organizations maintain chapters in New Brunswick without sanction by the University's administration.[119] Students involved in Greek Life must meet academic eligibility requirements including maintaining a cumulative 2.5 GPA, completion of 12 credits, and be a currently enrolled full-time student. Some individual organizations hold a higher GPA requirement. Many Greek organizations hold fundraising events specific to their philanthropy. However, it's Rutgers
Rutgers
tradition that our students participate in one of the largest student-run philanthropic events in New Jersey. All proceeds go to the non-profit organization, Embrace Kids Foundation. This foundation advocates for children with cancer and blood disorders. Dance Marathon

Several of the campuses are relatively new; the Busch campus (shown) was built within the last few decades and the Livingston campus is being expanded with new dormitories and facilities.

In the late 19th century, the university banned fraternities because of their unusual hazing practices. This caused them to go underground as secret societies. It also sparked the interest of some students to create their own societies. Cap and Skull was founded at Rutgers before the turn of the 20th century. Rutgers
Rutgers
has four vocal ensembles: Voorhees Choir (the university's women's ensemble), Kirkpatrick Choir (the university's most selective coed ensemble), Glee Club (the university's most esteemed male ensemble), and University Choir (a larger mixed choir). In 2011, the Iota Psi chapter of Sigma Chi
Sigma Chi
raised a national Greek record of $167,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network with the help of seven sororities: Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Phi Sigma Sigma, Sigma Delta Tau, Sigma Kappa, and Zeta Tau Alpha.[122] Traditions[edit] Main article: Rutgers

They serve traditional grill fare, Middle-Eastern specialties, and are especially well known for serving "Fat Sandwiches," a sub roll containing various ingredients such as cheesesteak, burgers, pork roll, chicken fingers, French fries, mozzarella sticks, eggs, bacon, gyro meat, and marinara sauce. The Rutgers

Three trucks remain on the College Avenue Campus, while the remaining two were moved to the Cook/Douglass Campus. The Dance Marathon
Dance Marathon
is a student-run organization that consists of a year-long series of fundraisers and culminates with the annual Marathon on April 5–6 in the College Avenue Gym. At the Marathon over 400 dancers pledge to raise funds and remain standing for 32 hours without sleeping. The 'Dancers', along with over 500 volunteers and countless visitors, are entertained by live bands, comedians, prize giveaways, games, sports, a mechanical bull, computer and internet access, various theme hours and much more. Rutgers
Rutgers
has held this tradition since 1999 and to date has raised in excess of $1.3 million for the Embrace Kids Foundation. In the seventies the Dance Marathon raised funds for the American Cancer Society. In the Eighties it was the Rutger Cancer Research Association. 'RutgersFest was a day-long cultural event staged variously on either Livingston Campus or Busch Campus. It was designed to promote college spirit through student organization participation with activities and entertainment throughout the day, culminating with a free concert and fireworks at night. The event was free to all students and guests and was funded as part of an elected programming fee paid by all students as part tuition. Past musical guests have included: Kanye West, Everclear, Sugar Ray, Guster, Goldfinger, Ludacris, Reel Big Fish, Method Man

and Redman, Fuel, Third Eye Blind, Hawthorne Heights, NAS, SR-71, Ok Go, N.E.R.D

and Pitbull. The event would feature carnival attractions such as bungee bull, bouncy boxing, moon walk, electronic basketball, a recording studio and more. Attendance for the annual event was about 40,000–50,000, topping out at an estimated 65,000 in 2004 at the event which featured Kanye West
Kanye West
and Sugar Ray[123] The event was staged by the Rutgers
Rutgers
University Programming Association (RUPA), which used to be known as the Rutgers
Rutgers
College Programming Committee (RCPC), as a year-end celebration before the start of the final examination period. During its final year in 2011, the festival was held on Busch Campus. Invited musical guests included Yelawolf, Pitbull, and 3OH!3. Several violent incidents that year lead to the indefinite cancellation of the event. President Richard McCormick, in a letter to the Rutgers community, commented: "The problems that occur following RutgersFest have grown beyond our capacity to manage them, and the only responsible course of action is to cancel the event."[124] Colors, mottos and mascots[edit] Rutgers
Rutgers
University's only school color is scarlet. Students had sought to make orange the school color, citing Rutgers' Dutch heritage and in reference to the Prince of Orange. The Rutgers
Rutgers
student publication Targum (which would become the Daily Targum) proposed that scarlet be adopted in May 1869, claiming that it was a striking color and because scarlet ribbon was easily obtained. During the first intercollegiate football game with Princeton on November 6, 1869, the players from Rutgers
Rutgers
wore scarlet-colored turbans and handkerchiefs to distinguish them as a team from the Princeton players.[125] The Board of Trustees officially made scarlet the school color in 1900.[125] In its early days, Rutgers
Rutgers
athletes were known informally as "The Scarlet" in reference to the school color, or as "Queensmen" in reference to the institution's first name, Queen's College.[125] In 1925, the mascot was changed to Chanticleer, a fighting rooster from the medieval fable Reynard the Fox
Reynard the Fox
(Le Roman de Renart) which was used by Geoffrey Chaucer's in the Canterbury Tales.[125] At the time, the student humour magazine at Rutgers
Rutgers
was called Chanticleer, and one of its early arts editors, Ozzie Nelson
Ozzie Nelson
(later of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet fame) was quarterback of the Rutgers
Rutgers
team from 1924 to 1926.[126] The Chanticleer mascot was unveiled at a football game against Lafayette College, in which Lafayette was also introducing a new mascot, a leopard.[126] However, the choice of Chanticleer as a mascot was often the subject of ridicule because of its association with "being chicken."[127] In 1955, the mascot was changed to the Scarlet Knight after a campus-wide election, beating out other contenders such as "Queensmen", the "Scarlet", the "Red Lions", the "Redmen" and the "Flying Dutchmen."[125][128] Earlier proposed nicknames included "Pioneers" and "Cannoneers". When Harvey Harman, then coach of the football team, was asked why he supported changing the Rutgers
Rutgers
mascot, he was quoted as saying, "You can call it the Chanticleer, you can call it a fighting cock, you can call it any damn thing you want, but everybody knows it's a chicken."[129] Harman later is said to have bought the first "Scarlet Knight" mascot costume for the 1955 season, which was to be his final season as football coach at Rutgers.[130] Overseas study[edit] Rutgers
Rutgers
has study abroad programs that visit prestigious Chinese universities such as Renmin University, Tsinghua, and Peking.[131] It also has working relationships with the professors at those universities as well.[132] With these universities, Rutgers
Rutgers
professors and students are actively engaged in social science and policy research. One of the results of this research is an anthology called China: Nonprofit Sector.[133] The editors are professors from Rutgers, Tsinghua, and Beijing Normal University. Rutgers
Rutgers

Rutgers
International service learning, exchange programs, and 2+2 and 2+3 programs. Rutgers and the Beijing University of Chemical Technology signed a 2+2 program, where Rutgers
Rutgers

has built a strong crew program consisting of heavyweight and lightweight men. Women's crew was added to the program in 1974. Financial support of the men's crew program was discontinued by the university in 2006, though the crew continues to compete (funded entirely by alumni and private support) at a high level in the prestigious Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges conference. The first intercollegiate athletic event at Rutgers
Rutgers
was a baseball game on May 2, 1866, against Princeton in which they suffered a 40–2 loss.[25] Beginning in 1866, Rutgers
Rutgers
was unaffiliated with any formal athletic conference and thus classified as "independent" for eighty years. From 1946 to 1951, the university was a member of the Middle Three Conference, and from 1958 to 1961, was a member of the Middle Atlantic Conference.[139] In 1978, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Rutgers
fields thirty teams in NCAA Division I sanctioned sports, including football, baseball, basketball, crew, cross country, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, swimming and diving, wrestling, and volleyball.[143] The Scarlet Knights have won five Big East Conference tournament titles: men's soccer (1997), men's track & field (2005), baseball (2000, 2007), and women's basketball (2007). Several other teams have won regular season titles but failed to win the conference's championship tournament.[144] Although the Rutgers

by a score of 37–10 and finishing the season ranked twelfth in the final AP poll of sportswriters, the team's highest season-ending ranking.[147] Under Head Coach C. Vivian Stringer, the women's basketball program is among the elite programs in the country as they remain consistently ranked in the Top 25, consistently making the NCAA Women's Championship Tournament, and sometimes winning the Big East regular season championship. In 2006–2007, the Scarlet Knights won their first ever Big East Conference Tournament Championship. The program has been highly competitive since its inception, winning the 1982 AIAW National Championship, reaching the 2000 Final Four, and reaching the Final Four and national championship game in 2007. The Scarlet Knights maintain athletic rivalries with other collegiate institutions. The university has historic rivalries with Princeton University, Columbia University
Columbia University
(formerly King's College), Lafayette College, Lehigh University

originating from the early days of college football. While they maintain this rivalry in other sports, neither of them has met in football since 1980. Rutgers

Rutgers
New Brunswick/Piscataway's NCAA Division I sports were discontinued by the University, including men's swimming and diving, men's heavyweight and lightweight crew, men's tennis, and men's and women's fencing. Some continued as club teams, while some were disbanded completely. The University claims this change was due to budget cuts, while others claim it was a politically motivated move designed to protest state's funding changes. In November 2012, the Rutgers
Rutgers
Scarlet Knights, along with Louisville, Connecticut, and Cincinnati left the Big East to form the American Athletic Conference. Syracuse and Pittsburgh have decided to enter the Atlantic Coast Conference, while West Virginia entered the Big 12 conference, taking effect as of the 2012–2013 season. Rutgers decided to leave the American for the Big Ten Conference, effective July 1, 2014. Rutgers
