Office Location

  • Going global – living and studying in another country – opens your eyes.
    You can't put a value on that type of experience. Immersing yourself in another culture puts all your skills to work. It's made me a better student and a better person.
    – Libby Hanks, East Greenwich, RI – Class of 2013
  • Rider feels like home to me.
    The team becomes your family.
    – Addison Oswald, Missoula, MT – Class of 2013
  • There’s a culture of involvement at Rider that helped me build my leadership skills.
    I’m constantly developing my skills — from practicing my public speaking to learning to work as part of a team, collaborating and implementing ideas. Every step of the way, Rider gives you direction and encouragement.
    – Monica Stachowski, Allentown, PA – Class of 2013
  • When you see how you can apply learning to your life and career, it all makes sense.
    Knowing there’s a connection between what I’m learning and what I can do with that knowledge fuels my interest and my drive to do better. Rider makes those real-world connections.
    – Justin Esteban, Bethel, CT – Class of 2014
  • It’s my turn to step up and give back.
    Community service offers a way to make a difference in the lives of children and young adults. They’re the future. If we can serve as positive role models, we’re setting them up for something good.
    – Lonz Fields, New York City, NY – Class of 2012
  • Students come to Rider – and stay – for its sense of community.
    It's easy to become connected to the Rider community. People here saw leadership potential in me. They encouraged me to get involved. They inspired me to do more. Rider has changed me as a person and as a leader.
