Rutgers-Camden is in a dilapidated area, and the community relies on the law school and all the clinics they offer poor and disabled residents. Same can be said for Rutgers Newark. Also, Rutgers-Camden has a federal courthouse across the street and another across the river in philly. Rutgers newark has a federal courthouse in its vicinity as well. Also, RC has ties to Philly, RN to North Jersey and NYC. Rutgers at NB campus would be illogical and will not happen bc there little to none employment prospects, nor a federal courthouse that is very close.
These are all great points, but unless you are President Barchi you can't say with 100% certainty that the campus situation won't change.
I agree, while perhaps chances are small something major would happen...it cannot be ruled out. The administrators are not omniscient, they may make a mistake or compromise some short term goals/success for long term success. They have to deal with budgets, and other pressures as well. Also, just because people would be upset doesn't mean that it won't happen -- if that were the case then no administrative decisions would be made that upset people....that is clearly not the case.
