Rider University Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


That were so many people who were there who were better than myself. I felt like a small fish in a big sea.


honestly, there is nothing i can think of that is at all frustrating about my school


This school is very expensive because it is a private school. It is definitely frustrating to pay that much for an education and then have other expenses tacked on like books, choir materials, etc.


A lot of people leave on the weekends, so sometimes the weekends can get boring.


The only frustrating thing about our school is it is small which means if you are no longer friends with someone or a group of people their is a very high risk of seeing that person all the time. That is the only downfall.


The alcohol policy. It is way too strict. They do not give us leniency with it. Yes, there are some irresponsible people on campus but don't punish everyone for it.


The thing that bothers me the most about Rider is the extremely high costs for schooling here. I don't feel like Rider is worth the immense expenses. I especially feel this way because Rider does not seem to prepare its students for life after college. It's also easily possible to find a much cheaper college or university and get the same or better learning experiences. Right now I feel as if I am wasting time here, and I am considering transfering to another establishment.


There is not enough emphasis on career opportunities and job-placement after graduation, especially for fine arts majors. I did not find the career resource center helpful at all in finding job placement after I graduated.


The appearance of our school is very frustrating. I feel they are making improvements though, so the architecture and overall look of our school is getting better. I think they should enhance the look of the older dorms, such as replacing carpeting. Another thing I don't like about Rider is the crowded classrooms, especially classes taken in the Fine Arts building. There is also a shortage of desks in certain classrooms. Also, contacting professors is sometimes a challenge, as well as scheduling classes that one must take to complete a major on time.


Financial Aid


The most frustrating thing about my school is that we pay so much money for tuition, that we don't get our monies worth.


The most frustrating thing about my school is that the campus is very small. There are few places to eat on campus and very few academic buildings.
