Party Scene: There are rarely ever parties on campus unless they are school sponsored events. Sometimes there are parties off campus, but if you don't have a car you have to find a ride or take an Uber.

Drug Safety: There are strict policies. If you are caught underage drinking on campus, you will have to perform some type of community service on campus and you may lose your on campus housing. If you or someone you know is intoxicated, there are services that you can use to help you or that person return to their dorm safely.

Overall Experience: I'm not sure what the student career prospects are or what the value of a degree from here is.

There is a Career day every semester where students can meet prospective employers.

Greek Life: Greek life is something I wish was more diverse on campus. At Rider we don't have many Greek organizations.

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.
