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!

We hold monthly meetings featuring fun activities, informative workshops, and talks by guest speakers. We also take trips to museums and sites of historical interest. Recent destinations have included the National Holocaust Museum, the battleship U.S.S. New Jersey, Eastern State Penitentiary, the Library Company of Philadelphia, and the National Constitution Center.

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