Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey is one of America's most prestigious universities. It is also among the nation's oldest; founded in 1766, which was before this nation was born. The university consists of seven campuses in three locations (Newark, New Brunswick and Camden) along the state of New Jersey. Areas of study seem endless. Students from as near as only a block away to as far as from other countries attend here. According to the late Dr. David Rebovich, a notable alumni of Rutgers and a prominent instructor of Rider University during his time, Rutgers is New Jersey's flagship university.
