Exhibition at Kilmer Library: "Three Campuses, One University"

The giant Rutgers 'R' created by Rutgers University Libraries staff to help celebrate Rutgers Day 2012. This item is also featured in the "Three Campuses, One University" exhibition.

Members of the Rutgers community and the general public are invited to view the exhibition, "Three Campuses, One University: A Look into the History of Rutgers and What Makes Us Proud," now on display on the main level of the Kilmer Library, on the Livingston campus in Piscataway.

Rutgers University has a rich history of growth, determination, and inspiration. Originally established as a school to train men for the ministry of the Dutch Reformed Church, it has evolved and expanded its educational values and influence. Today, the university spans across 3 campuses, educating more than 58,000 students and offering degrees in over 280 areas of study. The exhibit looks back on the history of Rutgers and the many achievements that make us proud.

Materials in the exhibition include The Rutgers Picture Book by Michael Moffatt, Rutgers: A Bicentennial History by Richard P. McCormick, Black Student Protest Movement at Rutgers by Richard P. McCormick, a DVD of the 2003 documentary Volcanoes of the Deep produced by James Cameron with assistance from Rutgers professors Richard A. Lutz and Peter A. Rona, and Rutgers memorabilia from the different campuses.
