Dear students, faculty and staff,
Welcome to the start of the fall 2023 semester! I especially want to wish our newest Broncs a warm welcome to the Rider community.
The energy and excitement of the fall semester is like no other. There are so many events, performances and ways for everyone at Rider to get involved. Remember to check rider.edu/events and BroncNation for the most up-to-date information about events, clubs and organizations.
A new semester represents a time of change for us all. There are limitless opportunities to embrace something new, whether it is taking on a leadership position, setting a goal that will support your career aspirations or learning from a viewpoint outside your own. Making room for change is fundamental for growth both personally and professionally.
Students, as you begin a new semester — or possibly your first one at Rider — remember that you have the full support of the Rider community behind you throughout your entire collegiate career and beyond. Ask questions, embrace new opportunities and take a moment to breathe.
Faculty and staff, thank you for your tireless mentorship and devotion to our students. Your impact is felt every day at this University and you truly make a difference in our Broncs’ lives. As we embark on a new academic year, our shared passion for helping students achieve beyond their expectations, our diverse perspectives and our belief in the power of higher education will guide our success.
Have a great year and Go Broncs!
Gregory G. Dell’Omo, Ph.D.
