Another group of about 20 people focused entirely on the merger of Rutgers-Camden and Rowan. Hyun Kyu Seo, a Rutgers-Camden student, brought copies of online petitions he created in opposition to the merger, signed electronically by 11,500.

The junior art major from Columbus — joined by several other students and a dozen Rutgers-Camden faculty members — said taxpayers “deserve a fuller fiscal and educational accounting before being forced to commit to radical changes in education in southern New Jersey.”

“I disagree that a merger between Rutgers-Camden and Rowan will boost the educational mission of both institutions,” he said.
