Are You Ready to Rock R-N?
Welcome to fall semester at Rutgers-Newark; a lot has happened over summer break. Rutgers-Newark is now part of an expanded “new” Rutgers University. On July 1, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey merged with Rutgers University, creating Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS). One of the end results: Rutgers-Newark is now one of two Rutgers campuses in Newark. The schools and units of the former UMDNJ have become the Rutgers Health Sciences campus at Newark. Welcome to our new colleagues and classmates at the Rutgers Health Sciences campus at Newark!
Whether you are new to Rutgers-Newark or returning to campus, you’ll have plenty to do this semester. For starters, you might still need to register for a course, sign up for a parking permit, move into your campus housing, get a photo ID, or buy your books.
You might want to join a club or otherwise participate in student life at R-N. You can check out the exhibitions at the campus’s Paul Robeson Galleries, cheer on the Scarlet Raiders at a game, explore one of the campus’s several libraries, take in a student play –or perform in one – or go for a swim.
Off campus you can enjoy concerts and live entertainment at the NJPAC or The Prudential Center, or tour one of the finest small museums in the U.S., The Newark Museum. Check out the multitude of things to do in Newark after class.
Studying or working at Rutgers-Newark can be your pathway to a new world. Get out and explore it.
