The Rutgers-Camden History Club is a student-run organization open to all members of the Rutgers-Camden community with an interest in history, regardless of major or department affiliation. There are no requirements to join – all you have to do is show up!

We hold monthly meetings featuring free food, and organize film screenings, talks on entertaining topics by faculty, and subsidized group trips to museums and sites of historical interest. Recent destinations have included the National Holocaust Museum, the battleship New Jersey, Eastern State Penitentiary, the Library Company of Philadelphia, and the National Constitution Center. The club members decide where they want to go next.

If you are interested in participating in History Club events and activities, please email Professor Nick Kapur (nick.kapur@rutgers.edu), to be placed on the announcement email list. Or just come to one of our meetings!
