Mills + Schnoering Architects, LLC (M+Sa) of Princeton, N.J., completed design of the Rutgers University-Newark Alumni Center renovation and adaptive use project to strengthen alumni and community relations. Opened in Fall 2018, the facility recently completed its first semester of operations. The project builds upon other recent preservation and new construction projects strengthening Newark’s cultural heritage and reinforcing the university’s connection to the city.
“The Alumni Center is an investment in Newark in two fundamental dimensions,” said Rutgers-Newark Chancellor Nancy Cantor. “Physically, it celebrates Newark’s distinguished past while signaling the city’s extraordinary renewal. Metaphorically, it connects generations past and present—alumni and current students—for whom it is a hub for sharing experiences, knowledge, and wisdom.”
