A Look Back: 2019 University Commencement

Thank you for making the 253rd Anniversary Commencement held at Stadium on May 19, 2019, an amazing celebration. Heartfelt congratulations to our newest 13,473 graduates.

Before a crowd of 47,000, Super Bowl champions and Rutgers alumni Jason McCourty and Devin McCourty encouraged the Class of 2019 to chase their dreams. The McCourty brothers urged students to not let moments of self-doubt, fear, and disappointment interfere with the drive to be great. Read more about the address. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy received an honorary doctor of laws degree, and Susan Robeson received a replica doctor of humane letters degree given to her grandfather Paul Robeson in 1973.
