Accepting an honorary degree from Rutgers-Camden today at the Susquehanna Bank Center, Jon Bon Jovi debuted a new song written for the occasion. The Associated Press identified the title as “Reunion.”

“Write your song, sing along, love your life/Learn to laugh, dare to dance, touch the sky,” Bon Jovi sang in the inspirational, uptempo song, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. “Take pictures each step of the way/Make this the best of the rest of your days/Start your revolution/And I’ll see you at the reunion.”
