What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Rider University. I have a made many lifelong friends here. There are multiple opportunities for students to get involved on campus, the university even allows students to create their own clubs/teams if there is enough of a following. The class sizes are not very large, so professors get to know you on a first name basis, which can be very convenient for students if they need extra help outside of class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At Rider University, there is not much to do besides party off campus on the weekends. There's not a lot near the school to do either, unless you drive at least 15 minutes. My experience in a sorority here at Rider is gruesome. There was NO hazing, but the sorority life is very strict and quite scary. However, the academics and teachers give a good learning environment, with small class sizes and easy to reach professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a student attending Rider University, I would say that it is a very amazing but different university with a wide range of opportunities for students to take. Rider University has a small classroom setting, which is always great, because being with a bigger class could make students feel less comfortable. It provides all students with the ability to be surrounded with all the help that they need. Rider helps students to feel comfortable in such a positive environment when it comes to academics and community service projects/assignments. This university has a wide range of sports and clubs to join, which makes people feel more adjusted to the Rider community. Rider should consider taking on more and better restaurants for students to eat at. The food kinda sucks. Besides that, Rider is just an awesome university/community to be apart of. It's the best choice that I have made in my life!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Everyone I talked to while I visited was so nice! The eating options here seemed to be very diverse. I feel as though this university could be a great fit for me! I am not into partying/drugs and from what my friends who have gone/are going to rider have told me, this university students more often focuses on academics than those things.

Rider is a very reputable university with a lot of culture and diversity. The professors are very knowledgeable and easy to get in touch with. The campus offers on campus living with on campus dining . The classes are reasonably sized and there's always someone who wants to ensure your learning experience. Rider is AWSOME!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you’re looking for a smaller school and a tight knit community Rider is for you. Everything is walking distance on campus, which is great because you don’t have to drive to class or catch a shuttle to get there. Most of the class sizes are also around 20 people, so you will be able to get one on one time with your professor if you have any questions. On the weekends people usually leave campus because nothing really goes on. Because the campus is so small you will see the same faces everyday, which can be a pro or a con depending on who you ask. I’d rate the cafeteria food a 3.5. They definitely put effort into being culturally diverse on certain holidays, which is appreciated. The student body is also very diverse. Overall Rider is a good school if your looking for something small and tight knit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Professors, sports, and academics are great. I wish there were more honors options and that housing along with dining was better. Dining options are awful for vegetarians and vegans. The bathrooms in the dorm buildings are disgusting. However, the majors are great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a rising senior at Rider University, my experience during the first three years has been nothing short of amazing. The academic faculty at the College of Business are extremely knowledgeable and are always available when I have a question regarding a class or to have intelligent conversations with them. Although it is a relatively small campus, we are a close knit community and we all have fun participating in various on-campus events. I have made strong friendships that I hope last a lifetime. Living on campus is always an interesting experience, but it nonetheless prepares students for the future (at least if they move out of their parents' house). All in all, I am proud to be part of the Rider University family and I cannot wait to start my final academic year at the college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rider is a developing school. This means they are always late to the "trend". Rider is usually the last to catch up on the fun things, morally correct things, and improvements. Rider has only been catching negative attention. This academic school year, Rider caught internet attention by being voted "Worst Dorms in America", and for rejecting Chick-Fil-A being served on campus, after already have accepted the contact to do so. After this year, important roles in Rider Administration have resigned due to not wanting to be a part of such who make such decisions. Rider's dining has had many counts of under cooked/raw food, and fault housing functions. This includes, but is not limited to, lack of heat, lack of air conditioning, lack of hot water, lack of security. Within the last two years of me attending Rider, a student has been run over a snow plow on campus, and they hired (then fired) a pedophile as a public safety officer. There are some decent things, such as residence hall improvements, or updating dining, but overall, not worth the money paid.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will always be happy that I chose to attend Rider University. The training I am recieving is superb, I have made lifelong friends, and being extremely close to the big apple is always a plus. But, they could improve their housing facilities and dining...a lot. It is something that could make campus life so much more enjoyable! Overall, I love Rider but there are some flaws that could be an easy fix.
