University named one of 387 best colleges, a best northeastern college
by Rachel Stengel '14, '20
Rider University is one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduates, according to The Princeton Review. The University was listed in The Princeton Review’s The Best 387 Colleges book for 2022.
In addition to the University's overall ranking, Rider was also recognized as a best northeastern college. Only about 14% of America’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in The Princeton Review.
"A Rider education is a transformative experience," says Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs DonnaJean Fredeen, Ph.D. "Throughout their time at Rider, our students accomplish things they may have not previously thought possible because of Rider's highly supportive learning environment. They learn to follow their interests and become leaders in their field."
Rider provides students the freedom to explore their passions and interests with more than 100 majors and minors. With the launch of the Engaged Learning Program in 2017, Rider students are able to actualize what every graduate of the University knows to be true — the best way to learn is by doing.
The Princeton Review chooses institutions for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students at the colleges who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences.
"We salute Rider for its outstanding academics and we are genuinely pleased to recommend it to prospective applicants searching for their ‘best-fit’ college,” says Rob Franek, The Princeton Review's editor-in-chief and lead author of The Best 387 Colleges.
