Rutgers-Newark Poem

From Alma Mater Vol. 2: The Northeast
Available Now for only 99 cents!



Rutgers brings the colors of All America,
Raiders sing its song from an altered view,
Sharing Hughes’s lyric on a mixed America,
Singing, “I am America, too.”
The most diverse campus in the country—
Newark is where culture and breeds are rife,
Beyond the words in a dictionary,
Culture is: our way of life.
We make you feel at home—the country’s RA,
The different flavors join—inside the broad batter,
Diversity is spread out & in our DNA,
Diversity is our science: It does matter.
We show different colors, but all share the same Jersey,
Representing Rutgers in Newark, New Jersey.
