Rutgers-Camden is excited to host one of the regional competitions for New Jersey History Day. Each year, National History Day chooses a historical theme that provides a framework for students’ research. The purposefully broad theme encourages investigation into local, national, or world history from any period of time. Conducting historical research through the focused lens provided by the annual theme allows students to develop perspective, make connections over time, and place their topics into historical context by considering the time and circumstances associated with their topics.
The 2022-2023 theme is Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas.
Rutgers University-Camden will be hosting one of the three regional competitions on Saturday, February 25. The schedule for the day is here. When visitors arrive on campus, they should report to the lobby of the Campus Center (shown on the map here) in order to pick up their registration folders.
Here is some logistical information to help plan your visit:
Free parking will be available. Lots are shown on the campus map here. Visitors may park in any campus lot except C12 and C13 (which are reserved for dormitory residents).
We will provide a light continental breakfast for visitors. Lunch will be available for purchase from our dining hall, located in the Campus Center.
If you are traveling by the River Line, please exit at the Cooper St. / Rutgers Univ. stop, which is next to our campus.
