Welcome! If you are one of the nearly 10,000 members of the Rider University graduating classes from the past ten years, you are a member of BOLD, Broncs of the Last Decade, and you play a vital role in the success, growth, and future of the University. As a member, you will find special opportunities to stay connected and engaged with Rider and to continue to be part of the Rider community.
The mission of the BOLD Alumni Program is to be a liaison for recent alumni to the University and the greater Rider alumni community. We connect alumni within their first ten years of graduation to one another and current students to strengthen the Engaged Learning Program and the alumni network. In addition to being part of Rider’s Alumni Association, BOLD alumni receive exclusive access to timely and meaningful networking and volunteer opportunities as well as personal and professional development workshops.
