Barnes & Noble College Booksellers, the New Jersey-based bookseller known for creating lively and welcoming centers of campus life, is partnering with Rutgers to manage the university's bookstores and student center convenience stores on the New Brunswick Campus. The stores opened under Barnes & Noble management on November 3, 2008. The Rutgers University Bookstore, currently located in the Ferren Mall, will become a Barnes & Noble Collegiate Superstore when it moves to the Gateway facility adjacent to the New Brunswick train station. The superstore, occupying three stories and 46,000 square feet, will be the retail anchor of the Gateway, a major mixed-use redevelopment project that is anticipated to be completed in 2011.

In the disputed election of 1876, Supreme Court Justice Joseph P. Bradley RC 1836 casted the deciding vote that made Rutherford B. Hayes rather than Samuel J. Tilden president.
In 1899, U.S. Vice President Rutgers Hall of Distinguished Alumni honoree Garret A. Hobart RC 1863 died in office. President William McKinley replaced him with Theodore Roosevelt, who assumed the presidency after McKinley was assassinated.
A three-story public art installation connects the old and new at Rutgers School of Law–Camden, and the striking glass facade, created by a Rutgers alumnus, provides a community space where faculty and students mingle. The several-ton installation was designed by New Jersey-based artist Mac Adams MGSA'69.
In designing the east building of Rutgers School of Law–Camden, an inventive planning team found inspiration in what might have been a mere structural detail: the passageway connecting the new building with the 1970s original across the street. Light streams through the walkway’s three-story glass façade onto cheerful student and faculty lounges that sit along it, at the intersection of the old and the new.
The visual centerpiece of this crossroads is a 1,200 square-foot glasswork installation set in the center of the law school’s north wall, with abstract shapes in vivid tones of blue, orange, pink, and yellow stretching across its 29 window panes. Each of the panels weighs between 250 and 300 pounds and is made of hand-cut antique glass. READ MORE
