Health & Safety: Our campus is very small, i don't expect for anything bad to happen to me. Public Safety goes around campus at night, so theres really no concern about suspicious activity happening. You will definitely feel safe here at Westminster

Campus Strictness: They make sure to keep everyone safe and not to have any problems. Thats why the rules are the way that they are. They don't encourage this behavior, because when it wasn't attended to someone died. They laid down the rules in a non-agressive matter. So i'm fine with it.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm only a freshman, so i can't move off of campus yet. I've heard decent things about the process of living off campus, but since i haven't gone through this myself, I can't really say much about it

Drug Safety: I've never seen anyone take drugs on campus and have only heard people talk about drinking. I don't partake in either, so I honestly don't know much about what is going on in regards to drugs or alcohol on campus.

Off-Campus Dining: I never eat off campus, so my input is not applicable.

Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: I'm not at campus for night unless it's a night class, and once my class is over, I head home.

Athletics: I myself am not a participant or spectator of sports, but I know other students have a lot of school pride when it comes to the sport teams. Rider always has signs up when there's a game and sends emails about away games.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I always see Public Safety monitoring the parking lots and on the Rider mobile app, students have easy access to both emergency and non emergency numbers for public safety.

Computers: I usually bring my own laptop when I need to get schoolwork done while at school. Wifi is easy to access and quick, so I give a thumbs up for that. I only have access to one computer lab, and that's mostly for my songwriting class, but the computers are relatively quick and I also have the chance to access my email while I'm there.

Diversity: I've noticed a huge amount of diversity on the Rider campus, which I think is great, and mostly because everyone is smart who goes there. Rider doesn't seem to fill quotas for different races, ethnicities, orientations, or anything. They accept people based on merit and that just happens to be a good amount of diversity.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm a commuter and live with my parents while going to Rider, so none of my answers for this section are applicable.

Academics: I love my major. It's very unique and I don't think any other school in the country has anything quite like it. With a major in popular music culture, I can take classes about American culture, music history, and learn how to write songs.

Scholarships: I don't get any financial aid.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: There's not much strictness at all. I can pretty much go anywhere on campus at any time and no one questions me.

Athletics: Haven't gone to many events but our D-1 teams have great support the basketball teams do very well and have a cult following

Rider University has a lot going for it. It is a small school, which can offer a personal college experience to students. The class sizes are small, so you will get to know the professors and your voice will be heard. The professors are generally more than willing to help students if they need additional help with their academics or even if they’re having a non-academic problem. The advisers here are extremely helpful, as well—they offer great assistance when scheduling your classes and are there to help you find your way after Rider.

A small student body means everyone pretty much recognizes every face on campus. This can provide a sense of comfort, but some people say this leads to a lack of privacy because everyone knows everyone else’s business. But, there is a bunch of nearby towns if you want to escape campus for awhile. Rider is also a very safe place because the University does all it can to keep students safe on campus.
