Rider University is entering a new and exciting time as we welcome the University’s seventh president, Gregory Dell’Omo, Ph.D. For those of you who have not yet met him, I can assure you that he is someone who has the intelligence, experience and leadership needed to continue the great foundation set by Dr. Mordechai Rozanski. I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Greg and his wife, Polly, at the awards ceremony held at reunions in June, and would like to take this opportunity to share with you what I learned from that upbeat interaction.
During our conversation, Greg shared with me how much he supports both the faculty and staff at Rider and recognizes the commitment and sacrifices that have been made to ensure academic excellence for our students. Greg is also an avid sports enthusiast and looks forward to joining students and alumni at many of the Rider athletic events this fall. Greg and Polly reside in the president’s home (“The Betta House”) in Lawrenceville. They have three grown children and two granddaughters.
Please check out the fall events calendar on the Rider website to see where and when you can meet President Dell’Omo. You can also visit www.rider.edu/events for all the dates, times and locations of upcoming events.
On behalf the entire Alumni Association, I welcome the Dell’Omos to the Rider family and wish them the best on this new chapter of their lives!
