Chancellor of Rutgers University, New Brunswick, Richard L. Edwards, will address incoming students and formally welcome all to the Rutgers University community at Convocation on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 5:00pm. The event will take place at High Point Solutions Stadium on the Busch Campus and feature speeches by students and administrators, as well as performances by several performing arts groups including the Rutgers Glee Club.
Students living in residence halls will travel together as a group and should check with their resident assistant for meeting times and transportation instructions. Convocation is followed by an outdoor BBQ (remember your RUID) and Carnivalé where new students can watch an outdoor movie, win prizes, play boardwalk games, laser tag, giant trike races, and much more.
Commuter students should plan to arrive at the Busch Campus Center at 2:30pm for an informal gathering in The Cove prior to Convocation. At 3:45pm students will walk to the stadium for the ceremony. Parking is available for commuters in Lot 64 (located at the Werblin Recreation Center).
