Progress is Earned: Big Ten TV Commercial

On the banks of the Raritan, the gears of progress turn
Powered by a willingness to stand for what’s right
By gaining ground in the race of our lifetime
And by ensuring every step we take includes our responsibility to the future.
Wherever the human race moves forward, you can be sure there’s someone there… pushing, learning, persevering
Because progress isn’t just made, it’s earned.

Progress doesn’t happen easily. It’s the result of long hours, occasional sweat, and perseverance to see it through. Progress is born of determination, and Rutgers gives everyone—from engineers to artists to the business leaders of tomorrow—the opportunities make the most of theirs.
