BTN LiveBIG: Best of … Rutgers

BTN LiveBIG: Best of … Rutgers

Few public universities in the United States have the historic pedigree of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. The institution, which traces its lineage back to its original charter in 1766, is celebrating its 250th “birthday” this year, making it slightly older than the U.S. itself.

Still, it’s looking good for its age. The university counts many modern trailblazers among its alumni, including novelist Junot Diaz, civil rights leader Paul Robeson, female soccer star Carli Lloyd and economist Milton Friedman.

And Rutgers alumni, faculty and students continue to make a mark on this country and the world, as demonstrated by some of these recent BTN LiveBIG stories:
