Why is Rutgers known as SLUTGERS?

What brought about this? Are they talking about Rutgers in general, or a specific campus?

    I don't know if it pertains to Rutgers as a whole, but it is prevalent on the New Brunswick campus.

    I don't know when the terms was coined, but it was stated that Rutgers had a high STD rate. SLUTGERS -- if there is high STD rate, most likely there are a lot of sluts here on campus, haha (females AND males). Just sleeping around, with whoever, whenever...I guess no one has ever heard of condoms?

    And apparently there's even a (condom) mascot; Sploogy, the Slutgers Mascot.

    yeah, rutgers has/had a bad reputation for rampant stds. they used to include condoms in the welcome package when you moved in, for safety precautions--that's how bad it was.

    but i don't think rutgers is particularly slutty, you know, as compared to other schools. ie there was a syphilis outbreak last year at cornell. crazy stuff.

    Hmm, I'm trying to find articles that pertain to this that states (and proves!) that Rutgers STD rate was high when compared to other universities.

    Anyway, if you plan to sleep around AMGLeague, just make you're protected! Although, it might be safer just to be with one person (that's just me)

    College in general is a fantastic place to get an STD.
  • MushaboomBlueMushaboomBlue Registered User Posts: 1,715 Senior Member
    True, pepsitruck

    Also, take into account that this university is large, so there will be more STD-infested kids.

    with all the sex in college, STDs will obviously go around. Rutgers just seems to have a higher STD rate than other schools. I heard that College Ave campus has more of the STDs since the frats and parties are there

    Oh great...I bet if my parents knew about this...they wouldn't have forced me to enroll just because it's cheap since I'm instate, LOL.
  • MushaboomBlueMushaboomBlue Registered User Posts: 1,715 Senior Member
    It's not like you'll get an STD by breathing in the air of that syphilis-infected chick with a cold sore that sat next to you on the "A" bus.

    Just don't sleep around, haha. But .... if you're one who tends to sleep with different partners, perhaps you should make sure that protection is involved in every sex act you engage in -- not just intercourse, but oral.

    oh great, another thing to be wary of in Rutgers....:D
    Oh well, I'm highly anticipating my first year there, despite what I hear about
    the rampant sex related diseases and the slightly over the line frat parties. The PSA taken into account MushaboomBlue! =)
  • zircushiozircushio Registered User Posts: 858 Member
    JUST so all the girls know, I'm available as a study partner, or to anyone who just wants to spoon. :]
  • MushaboomBlueMushaboomBlue Registered User Posts: 1,715 Senior Member
    ^ LMAO!!!

    The sad thing is, there might be some random soul out there willing to take up the offer, esp. at Slutg--ehem --Rutgers University =(
  • zircushiozircushio Registered User Posts: 858 Member
    ^ i'm glad you understood the joke :]

    Giving my 2 cents to a very old question here:

    Why is Rutgers called Slutgers?

    For absolutely no other reason than that it rhymes.
