We are officially in the full swing of fall at Rutgers University!  The air is getting cooler, but things are certainly heating up here on campus! If someone asked me why fall is so popular, I could give them a million reasons; however the biggest reason is, without a doubt, all of the fun things to do in and around Rutgers during this time of year.  Take a look at some of the great activities happening throughout the fall season.


Scarlet Harvest

The Woodlawn on Douglass campus is home to a Rutgers tradition-  Scarlet Harvest.  Sponsored by RUPA, this event is the perfect way to enjoy all of what fall has to offer.  There will be food, music, and plenty of other activities to enjoy with your friends.  Stop by on October 14th from 3:00 to 6:00.


Deiner Park

Looking to get some fresh air and exercise? Deiner Park is the place for you!  Located on George Street on the College Avenue campus, this park is the perfect place to spend time outdoors.  Whether you decide to go for a walk to take in the fall foliage and the Raritan River, or play basketball or frisbee with friends, you are sure to find something to do here!


Passion Puddle

If you’re not in the mood to exercise, you can always enjoy the fall scenery at Passion Puddle on the Douglass campus.  It’s a great place to have a picnic, read a book, or just simply take a break from the hecticness of your day.  


Need a Treat?

A fall staple is, without a doubt, the pumpkin spice latte.  Luckily, there is a Starbucks in the Plaza on Livingston campus to fulfill your cravings!  It’s the perfect pick-me-up in between classes, especially on the days when the weather isn’t its best.  Line too long? Head over to the Livingston Student Center and enjoy a pumpkin cheesecake square from Dunkin Donuts.


Fall Sports

The fall sports season is far from over!  Head over to Busch campus to see the Big Ten in action.  Yurack field is home to our soccer program, and both the men’s and women’s teams have winning records! There are still 3 home games left for our football team, so there is plenty of time to enter the lottery and catch a game. Of course, we can’t forget about field hockey and volleyball.  Make sure to support all of the fall sports here at Rutgers!

Of course, this list isn’t nearly comprehensive.  There is something new and exciting to do every day at Rutgers.  So, gather your friends, break out the sweaters, and enjoy everything Rutgers has to offer this fall.
