Embrace the fall season with these five October events at Rider

There's so much to see, hear and do on campus this month

Now that the first few weeks of the 2018-19 school year is in the history books, and a jam-packed September full of welcome-back events is officially in the rear view mirror, what's their to look forward to in between classes on campus?

Fear not: October is going to be a big month for signature Rider events that historically are among the most memorable of the whole year. This is what you have to look forward to:

Fall Concert

Oct. 5, 7:30 p.m.
Student Recreation Center

The annual fall concert at Rider is always the talk of the semester, long after the lights have gone out and the artist is back on the road. A true concert experience right here on campus. PNB Rock with special guests Young M.A. and Flipp Dinero. Come out and have a blast.


Oct. 10-14
Yvonne Theatre

You know that Rider students go on to perform on Broadway and tour around the country, right? This is your chance to see them before they hit the big time. Plus, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical is a bona fide classic.

Homecoming 2018

A lot of Rider alumni will return to campus for Homecoming, but this major event isn't only for them; students can participate in a full day's worth of things to do, in addition to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. Don’t miss out on so many fun activities and delicious food!
