The Rutgers-Camden History Club is open to all members of the Rutgers-Camden community with an interest in history, including both graduate students and undergraduates, regardless of major or department affiliation. There are no requirements to join – all you have to do is show up!

The fall is full of interesting events; a talk about an archaeological expedition, a trip to the Penn Museum, Quizzo, and more!
