Paul Robeson, an athlete, actor, singer and civil rights activist who is one of Rutgers’ most notable alumni, would have celebrated his 125th birthday on April 9. To mark the occasion, various university organizations and alumni groups are holding several events in or around Rutgers University–New Brunswick throughout April to honor the 20th century Renaissance man’s legacy. 


The Engagement Hub, flanked by balloons and merchandise

At Rutgers University—New Brunswick, students have plenty of chances to get involved in intramural sports teams, student organizations, or employment opportunities in departments like Recreation and Dining, among many others. As of spring 2023, they have one more resource to connect them with these involvement opportunities: the Engagement Hub in the Student Activities Center (SAC).

On an unseasonably warm December morning, more than 2,000 runners participated in the Rutgers Big Chill 5K to benefit Winter Wishes, an annual holiday-themed event that provides clothing and toys to children ages 3-5 in New Brunswick preschool programs, and the Rutgers Student Food Pantry, which provides food to Rutgers students experiencing food insecurities.

A joint program between the Embrace Kids Foundation and RUDM, RU4Kids connects student organizations with patient families in hopes that college students can help provide comfort, friendly faces, and fun during trying times. Cameras were rolling as Joey and Rutgers UNICEF took in the sights and sounds of the 2019 edition of RUDM. For more information about RUDM and Embrace Kids, visit
