3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are some housing options that are kind of off campus, but since we are surrounded by the highway and woods there are not many options.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is only driving distance chain restaurants that provide crappy food that is easier to eat on campus then off

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I do not go to parties, but from what I hear they are never really fun and mostly just at the Frats

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They are not as strict on somethings that they should be and very strict on things like parking, but overall they do what they need to.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was a problem to receive the second time I went to do it because I moved and they would not change my address, Rider was somewhat understanding

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Depending on the time of day you go, there could be a very limited amount of food to none, sometimes the food is not bad, but others it is very under cooked or you can't even tell what it is supposed to be.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings are very old and the rooms are very small. You either freeze or sweat there is no in between

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus yet so I would not really be qualified to comment.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Princeton is nearby and so is route 1 so there are many good places to eat if you have a car.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Drugs are a big no here. Alcohol rules are lenient especially if you have a lax RA. No reason to drink half the time though since their are just as many parties here as Patrick star has brain cells. Tickets for parking are constant and that pretty much sums it up.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: You need a taxi to go anywhere which is expensive or at least a DD. Parties always get caught, and cost at least 5 if you are a guy and some cheap parties even charge girls too. Dorm parties are better if you have good friends , but arent much better either,

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a wonderful scholarship which is the only reason I went here in the first place, besides it being a good business school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Okay food, but it is very expensive and not worth the money. Better off eating off campus or getting a dorm room with kitchens.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are terrible unless you live in a suite or off campus housing. The dorms are older than my parents and you will sweat to death closer to the summer time. You don't get what you pay for.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live with my parents.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: pretty hard to find some places. but okay with the ones i found.

4 College Junior

Administration: i feel they are great, they know what they are doing.

College Junior

Party Scene: never been to one or know anything about it.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: some unclear with the employees. takes to long to get information. don't give clear instructions.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: things are great except that you lose can lose money if you don't use the meal passes. Variety is great. Love the food on campus.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on Campus. I am a commuter.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I personally don't live in off-campus housing, but friends of mine that do say it is really nice.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the restaurants in Princeton are within walking distance of WCC, and there are usually students with cars that are willing to go with their friends to restaurants that aren't close enough to walk. Most of the restaurants offer student discounts, but can still be expensive since they are in downtown Princeton.

4 College Freshman

Administration: There aren't really any policies that affect academic or social lives

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Most of the students get some form of scholarship, while there are other scholarships available based on academic performance, merit, ability, etc.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
