"Let's Do Lunch" with Dean Goodman on April 28

Rutgers Day logo The popular tradition of "Let's Do Lunch with the Executive Dean" at Rutgers Day/Ag Field Day will take place this year in a new, elegant venue - the Ludwig Global Learning Center on Jameson Quad on the Douglass campus. Plan to join us from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, 2018.

All School alumni, retired faculty, and their families are invited to join Executive Dean Bob Goodman and many of our active faculty to see this outstanding new facility and enjoy a tasty barbecue lunch. The event is free, but registration is strongly suggested.

The Ludwig Global Leaning Center is the newest building on the Cook/Douglass campus. It is located at 9 Suydam Street at the corner of Nichol Avenue, tucked neatly behind the original buildings of the Jameson Quad. Guests will enjoy seating in the indoor Schonberg Room or on the patio outside the center. Tours of the public areas of this grand new building - built with a gift from alumna Kathleen DC'75 and spouse Edward Ludwig - will be available.

The building was selected by the New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in a survey initiated by USA Today Travel, which asked AIA chapters across the country to name the top 25 structures visitors should see in their states.
