The Rutgers Club of Southern California, founded in 1947 is one of the oldest Rutgers Alumni Clubs in the country. Since its founding, the club has sought to bring SoCal Rutgers alumni together through outings, meetings, and events, as well as maintain and strengthen their university connection by fostering feelings of Rutgers community and pride. We may be far from our beloved Alma Mater, but the Rutgers Club of Southern California aims to make that distance feel smaller by keeping the Rutgers spirit alive and well in SoCal.
All Rutgers alumni within Southern California, minus San Diego, are considered participants in our club.

Favorite Thing About Time at Rutgers:
Attending the Rutgers Football games including the Louisville football game in 2006 when Rutgers came back to win with Ito's famous winning field goal kick. Eating fat sandwiches on campus was my favorite food on campus.
Class: Rutgers Newark College of Arts of Sciences, 1986
Favorite Thing About Time at Rutgers: Many of us were paying attention and noticing a turning of the tables and an embracing by the university of the diversity that generations prior often denied existed. Rutgers-Newark is exemplary in that it was and continues to be a true melting pot of languages, heritages, cultures, races, religions, and serves a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds.
Class: Rutgers Newark College of Arts and Sciences, 1963 & 1967
Favorite Thing About Time at Rutgers: as the 4 years I spent on the Varsity Cheerleading Squad for RU Basketball, 2 of those years as Co-captain. Oh those splits I could do then. I think I still have my Varsity cheerleading jacket!
