Office of the President
Dear Rider University Community,
For a number of students, this semester represents their last at Rider before they venture off into their first jobs post-college. During this time of reflection, remember that all of your experiences as a student — whether it was switching your major to pursue your passion for teaching, interning in Los Angeles at a major network or making lifelong friends — matter. Experiences both grand and small have helped you develop your path.
A common thread for Rider students is their desire to explore their interests and carve their own way with the unconditional support of their fellow classmates, professors and staff members on campus. To our students finishing their final semester, there will be plenty of celebratory goodbyes with your fellow graduates, but always know that you are a Bronc for life. Wherever your journey takes you, Rider will always be a part of your story. We can't wait to hear where life continues to take you because we know you'll accomplish things that may only be dreams right now.
To our students who are still in the midst of your journeys, use this semester to engage fully and embrace your passions. If you're second-guessing your major or unsure where to start looking for your dream internship, that's all part of the process and we're here to help. At Rider, we want you to wander with intention because you are never alone.
College is a time to write your own, unique story. This semester, think about what the next chapter of your story will be and we'll help you get there.
