Commencement on Social


Safety Efforts
As part of our efforts to ensure safe and enjoyable events, we are working closely, as we do each year, with Lawrence Township Police Department and Mercer County Fire Police for the Lawrenceville campus ceremonies and with Princeton University Department of Public Safety for the Westminster Choir College ceremony. As in past years, they will monitor the ceremonies with us, assist with traffic and parking, and be a presence on campus along with Rider’s Department of Public Safety and other staff throughout the University.

To assist our Department of Public Safety, we ask that graduates, families and guests refrain from bringing backpacks, large purses, coolers, duffel bags and any other large bags to the Commencement ceremonies. When you are on campus, please do not leave any items unattended.  We also ask that you refrain from bringing pets to the ceremonies.

Should you have any concerns while on campus, please reach out for assistance to any of our Public Safety officers or other Rider staff, identifiable by their attire.
