It's a day to find out what New Jersey's state university is all about, when the sixth annual Rutgers Day takes place Saturday on the New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses.
There's a little something for everybody, young and old. Rutgers Day, a free event which last year drew a record 83,000 attendees, runs from 10 am to 4 pm. Parking also is free, and shuttle buses will connect the campuses. The Douglass Campus will host the Global Village, where you can experience different cultures, plus the 40th annual New Jersey Folk Festival with dozens of musical acts. The Busch Campus will have an exhibit called Gray Matters, focusing on the complexities and advancements in neuroscience. The College Avenue Campus has the "Rutgers is B1G" exhibit, highlighting the university's upcoming academic transition into the Big Ten.
For the athletic side, there's the annual Scarlet-White Football Game that caps off spring camp, 4 pm at High Point Solutions Stadium. That's also free. At halftime, the women's basketball team will be honored for winning the 2014 WNIT Championship; they'll also be available for pictures with fans before the game, from 3 to 3:45 outside the North Gate of the stadium.
