Join our online community

The Rider Connect platform allows alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and others committed to Rider's success to network professionally and socially in a dynamic online community. Search the alumni directory, post and search for job opportunities, view events, share advice and gain fresh perspectives. We recommend using your LinkedIn credentials to sign in.

Alumni leadership and volunteer opportunities

Getting involved with your alma mater is one of the best ways to give back, keep in touch with friends and faculty and hone professional skills. Rider University offers a variety of leadership and volunteer opportunities to do just that.

Contact our office at 609-896-5340 or [email protected] for information on how you can volunteer for Homecoming or to plan a reunion event, serve as a member of the Alumni Board of Directors, or become involved as a regional volunteer.

The Alumni Board of Directors has committees responsible for fundraising, student and alumni engagement, awards and more.

As a member of BOLD, Broncs of the Last Decade, you will find special opportunities to stay connected and engaged with Rider. You play a vital role in the success, growth and future of University.

Regional outreach

We currently have several regional chapters established with plans to expand into other areas.  There are more than 25,000 Rider alumni living within a 50-mile radius of our campus in addition to clusters of alumni throughout the world.

Affinity outreach

We know that in many cases, Rider alumni feel a stronger kinship today with friends from their respective clubs, residence halls or majors than with their actual graduating class. For this reason, we have begun to establish various affinity chapters for alumni. Here is a list of our current chapters:

  • Educational Opportunity Program
  • Graduate Business
  • Science
  • Men’s Soccer

Contact the Office of Alumni Relations to discuss joining or starting a regional or affinity chapter.
