Office of the President
Dear Rider University Community,
Each new academic year represents a time for growth and exploration. Just by looking around campus, it is clear that Rider is growing. From renovated residence halls to new labs and lecture halls in the Science and Technology Center to the revamped pool to a brand-new Cranberry's, our campus is continuously evolving to foster a vibrant living and learning community.
Exploration is a special part of the Rider experience. This academic year students may find themselves choosing one of our new majors like dance science, exercise science, or game & interactive media design. Others may pursue an internship, complete a research project with a professor or study abroad. All of these experiences help our students discover their true passions by allowing them to wander with intention.
The Engaged Learning Program continues to actualize what every Rider student knows to be true — the best way to learn is by doing. Students are uncovering the multitude of opportunities a Rider education can offer and forging their pathways toward a professional career.
As you continue to find your path, Broncs, remember that you are never alone. Rider is a place where you don't go unnoticed. Your professors know more than just your name. They know who you are and what you dream to become. So this academic year, ask questions, get involved and feel secure knowing that you can find your path with the help of those around you.
