• The special exhibition galleries are filling up with YOUR photographs - nearly 1,600 and counting - as the HereNow: Rutgers 250 initiative celebrates the university’s milestone anniversary. Submissions from students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors capture the iconic scenes of student life, campus sights, hidden nooks, and treasured moments. Together, these images create a dynamic, once-in-a-lifetime collage.


    We encourage you not to miss this opportunity to participate and encapsulate your Rutgers experiences for future generations. Upload images from 2015 and 2016 at Following the upcoming deadline, a panel of arts professionals will review the photos and select 250 to be featured in a full-color art book available this fall.
