Rutgers Day


Come as a family. Come with a group. Come by yourself. Just come to Rutgers Day! Rutgers Day programming takes place on the Busch, College Avenue, and Cook/Douglass campuses, and there is something for everyone at each location!

What is Rutgers Day?

Rutgers Day is a huge open house where you can get a glimpse of all the exciting things happening at New Jersey's state university. There are free performances, exhibits, interactive programs, demonstrations, and more on the Busch, College Avenue, and Cook/Douglass campuses in New Brunswick and Piscataway. As you and your family explore, learn, and play, you will get a clearer sense of the valuable contributions Rutgers makes to the people of New Jersey.

Everyone is invited to Rutgers Day! Bring your family and friends. There will be interesting, informative, and entertaining activities for parents and children, teens, current and prospective students, alumni, faculty and staff, and the general public.

What does the Geology Museum offer on Rutgers Day?

The museum is open to visitors all day long and will offer a variety of hands-on activities inside the museum as well as in tents set up on the College Avenue Campus.

Check out the full list the programs offered by the Geology Museum and other departments and units at Rutgers University on the main Rutgers Day website.


All parking lots are open and FREE, so you can leave your car and take the shuttle bus to travel between campuses. Signs will help guide you to parking and activities.
