2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Finding some where to live off campus and not at home is very difficult and expensive.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: As long as you have the vehicle to get where you're going, then the food options off campus are plenty.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Most of the time the security is very kind and often respectful as long as you return the respect.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It takes a while to get done, but they're willing to help.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go to parties on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is much better than it could be considering that the quality is very good.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, I am a commuter. However, I have seen the housing in several buildings and it is quite average.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For the considerable amount of money I pay to attend this school, the housing options and quality are incredibly poor and disappointing.

Party Scene: The party scene on campus is small and a bit lame, but not the worst considering the size of campus.

Academics: When it comes to the general education requirements, the curriculum is unnecessarily large and strict. The gen ed professors are almost all adjunct and do not take into account the amount of work our majors give us. General education classes are more stressful than my major courses and mostly do not correlate to any information I will need in the future. For example, as an Arts Administration major, the need for World History from year 0-1500 is not needed and gave me an unnecessary amount of stress.

Greek Life: I am apart of Alpha Psi Omega, the coed fine arts fraternity. It is a pretty fun time, and mostly a place to hang out with friends and create bonds.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am an Arts Administration major, a major that is underrated and surprisingly difficult. The staff is great and really are there to teach you the skills, put them to use, and find you work.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Rider is not a school that is extremely well known for its sexual abuse, but that is not due to a lack of abuse. It is 100% due to the fact that many, or most abuse cases are not brought up to higher authority.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Lawrenceville isn't the best, but I cannot complain. It is a safe, middle class town and comfortable to live in. However, I cannot see myself living here longer than needed.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many of my friends love living off campus. It is much cheaper than living on and you still have the option of participating on campus then going back to a cozy home life. I plan to live off campus junior year.

Administration: The administration are very hot and cold about how strict they are. One day they will violations slide and the next they are too strict about slight violations.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial anything at school is difficult for most people, the more scholarships/grants/financial aid you need, the more difficult it becomes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is difficult to get to as the school is in an odd location, but the food options aren't horrible if you can get there.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's what you make of it

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Far too expensive for what you get

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school doesn't equally support all its athletic teams

3 College Freshman

Majors: The college does help everyone to find internships.

Administration: The administrates are extremely strict.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I am an athlete so athletics are important to me. The teams are very supportive of each other, however there is little school spirit. The soccer games and basketball games are fun on occasions. There is no football team which is sad at times but a lot of the students will go to TCNJ to watch their football games.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is only really for academic groups. The academic groups are extremely helpful for finding jobs and internships.

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.
