International Week Flags 

A new edition to the Campus Center Scarlet Lounge is our 2023-2024 Flag Display, which represents the 60 countries our students arrive from to attend class at Rutgers University – Camden.  These flags not only celebrate the rich diversity of our campus community but allow every Rutgers student to connect with our physical campus and know Rutgers celebrates their identity. Each year, we will update the flags based off the enrollment list received from the Registrar’s Office. 

Sponsored by the Camden Campus Center
