Newark By The Numbers

Newark Strong

Rutgers-Newark is rated as the northeast's fourth best bang for the buck by Washington Monthly 2021. Our campus has traditionally served as the place of educational opportunity for first-generation college students, for students whose home languages were not English, for students who commuted to campus to save money, for students who work to stay in college and/or support their families, and to students of diverse racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.
