Rutgers Day, one of the state’s landmark spring events, drew crowds to New Brunswick and Piscataway on Saturday for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic forced the activities to move online two years ago.
Thousands of visitors came to Rutgers to enjoy over 500 activities and programs showcasing Rutgers excellence, including a surgical robot demonstration, cart racing, geology crafts, agriculture quizzes, and a Block R Rubik’s cube art installation.
Many people in the crowd have been coming to activities that are part of Rutgers Day for years. But for President Jonathan Holloway, Saturday marked his first Rutgers Day since he started in his role during the pandemic.
"For me, this is a day of wonderful discovery, and I am thrilled to be here," Holloway said.
