50th Celebrations

Let the celebration begin!

Taking care of business since 1972,

RCB kicked off its 50th Anniversary year with a series of celebrations and events.

Student wearing 50th anniversary shirt More than 600 students attended the 70s themed Rohrer Fest in September. Students colorfully decorated their Rohrer Fest t-shirts at a tie-dye station, roller skated in Business Center, which was converted to a roller rink, and took pictures in the Warhol Portrait photo booth. The event also included food trucks, ax throwing and a Saxbys coffee garden. 
Conference attendees In October, RCB hosted the Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance Conference. Held in cooperation with the Global Interdependence Center, the daylong program in Business Hall addressed a wide range of issues, including the science behind climate change, health care and the outlook for Covid, and corporate governance and investing amid staggering 21st century uncertainties.
Ric Edelman, a Rowan alumnus, investor and New York Times best-selling author, also came to campus in October. He discussed cryptocurrency and blockchain during his presentation to students, answered questions and signed copies of his latest book, The Truth About Crypto.
attendees holding 50th anniversary shirts As part of Rowan University’s homecoming week, the College hosted a 50th anniversary Alumni Fiesta. Under thatched umbrellas and surrounded by festive decorations, more than 100 alumni, faculty and staff raised a glass to celebrate and enjoyed made-to-order tacos.
 Student making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches The Rohrer Center for Professional Development (RCPD) hosted a Day of Service in November. More than 100 students, faculty and staff made 631 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to donate to Cathedral Kitchen in Camden and created more than 80 cards to send to servicemen and women overseas. The following day, RCPD worked with the Office of Volunteerism for an RCB-specific “Fresh for All,” providing 300 families with fresh produce — which was a new college record!

Later that month, the School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship hosted Jason Feifer, editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur magazine, for its Spotlight Speaker Series.

Mr. Feifer gave the first 80 students copies of his new book, Build for Tomorrow: An Action Plan for Embracing Change, Adapting Fast and Future-Proofing Your Career! 

He encouraged students to “become more resilient and adaptable in a world of constant change — so you can seize a new opportunity before anyone else does!”
