Rutgers University-New Brunswick is a public research university, and one of the top 70 colleges in the U.S. It is the oldest Rutgers University campus (the two others are in Newark and Camden), and was chartered in 1766. Rutgers is also the eighth oldest institution of higher learning in the U.S., and one of nine colonial colleges that opened prior to the start of the American Revolution. The campus size is nearly 2,700 acres. Its motto is “Sol iustitiae et occidentem illustra” or “Sun of righteousness, shine also upon the West.” Notable alumni include actors Sebastian Stan and Brandon Flynn, soccer player Carli Lloyd, bass player Paul Robeson, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, football defensive tackle Eric LeGrand, actress Kristin Davis and journalist Becky Quick. The school’s color is scarlet, and the mascot is Scarlet Knight. Its sporting affiliations are NCAA Division I, FBS and Big Ten. Varsity sports offered include men’s baseball, basketball, cross country, golf and wrestling, and women’s basketball, softball, field hockey, soccer, swimming and diving, and tennis. Rutgers is where college football began; in 1869, Rutgers and Princeton played the first game of intercollegiate football. Rutgers won, 6-4.
