From a colonial college (1766) and land-grant institution, Rutgers has developed into one of America's leading public research universities. As New Jersey's State University, Rutgers fulfills its three-part mission of instruction, research and service by educating a diverse student body of over 48,000 on its three campuses, in Newark
and New Brunswick
The New Brunswick campus enrolls approximately 34,000 of those students. The program leads to bachelors degrees, masters degrees, post-masters certificates, doctoral degrees and first professional degrees. Rutgers is one of three public research universities in New Jersey.
Athletic scholarships are given in football, basketball, baseball and track/cross-country. Student housing is available for over 12,000 people.
