In 2016, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, will mark its 250th anniversary. Chartered in 1766 as the all-male Queen's College in New Brunswick, New Jersey, the school was renamed Rutgers College in 1825 to honor Revolutionary War veteran and trustee Colonel Henry Rutgers. Today, Rutgers, a leading public research university, is home to more than 65,000 students each year and 24,000 faculty and staff in New Brunswick, Newark, Camden, and other locations around the state.

Rutgers: A 250th Anniversary Portraitbrings to life two and a half centuries of excellence in higher education. At its "sestercentennial", Rutgers stands as the nation's eighth oldest institution of higher learning - one of only nine colonial colleges established before the American Revolution - and boasts an unparalleled tradition of meeting the challenges of each new generation. In celebration of this auspicious milestone, this limited edition commemorative book includes an eclectic mix of historical narrative, archival artifacts, and personal stories and memories from alumni.

This beautifully illustrated book, with over 200 images of new and archival photographs, revisits people and programs, achievements and discoveries of Rutgers's illustrious past with an eye toward the next 250 years. Rutgers also offers a unique perspective on the University with contributions by renowned alumni, prominent faculty members, and University leaders - names you're sure to recognise - all capturing the fascinating history of Rutgers and its potential in the next 250 years.
