Alumni Relations

Scarlet Pride

The Official Blog for Rutgers Alumni


Incoming Rutgers students from across the country may spend these last few weeks of summer Googling every possible topic about Rutgers, looking for clues about what their college experience might be like. From deciphering the bus routes to finding the right courses—and even finding the best late-night pizza—having experienced alumni to talk to would sure be a helping hand!

Now, thanks to a network of loyal alumni, many soon-to-be students will get a better sense of what to expect by participating in Student Send-off Receptions, hosted by RUAA Regional Clubs across the country in partnership with University Undergraduate Admissions.

To welcome the Class of 2014 to the Rutgers family, the following clubs are hosting events this summer: Greater Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley, Raleigh-Durham, Charlotte, Southern California, San Francisco, and San Diego. At these events, alumni share stories about their Rutgers experiences, offer invaluable advice and tons of encouragement, and help students and families feel confident in choosing Rutgers.

RUAA Regional Clubs are a wonderful opportunity to serve Rutgers from your hometown, even if you are thousands of miles away from campus. Clubs not only represent Rutgers to incoming students, but also at college fairs and other events in their area. Where there are alumni, there is Rutgers!
