What was once Queens College was established in the year 1766, 10 years before America was even a country. As the retired TV commercial once echoed, "Before there was a United States... (there was Rutgers)."
Rutgers has a history dating further back than the country we celebrate today; so as we remember our founding fathers and the signing of the Declaration of Independence, let us also keep in mind the great University we celebrate every day on this website. Enjoy your holiday and be thankful for the great country we are able to live in.
On The Banks wishes everyone out there a fun and safe holiday weekend!
