Officials wanted a better space for welcoming students and parents to campus

From The Philadelphia Inquirer: Rutgers University has opened a $7.5 million welcome center in its home base of New Brunswick, N.J. The 12,000-foot, two-story welcome center is distinguished by a large red wall with the university's signature block R in white that seems to grow out of the ground into the sky. A high-tech, light-filled building, it has a wall of glass that will make its key feature—a scarlet wall exhibit—visible from the road. It includes historical timelines and exhibits on the university's academics, campus and students.
