In Search of Alumni Veterans

How many of Rutgers–Camden’s more than 50,000 alumni are veterans? The alumni database counts 1,427, but administrators believe there are more. The university did not start tracking veteran status until 2009, missing several generations.

The Veteran Alumni of Rutgers University (VARU) wants to grow its membership and reach out to all Rutgers–Camden alumni veterans. “It’s important for veteran alumni to know that they are not alone,” said William Brown Sr., a 1981 graduate of Rutgers–Camden and president of VARU.

The association asks that all veterans update their contact information and identify themselves with the university by filling out a veterans affiliation form at or by calling 856-225-6028. For more about VARU, call 609-937-9200 or email
