Rider University offers students the freedom to explore their passions and interests with more than 100 majors and minors in business, education, fine and performing arts, science and liberal arts. You’ll learn to love the work by doing. Rider’s Engaged Learning Program gives you the opportunity to be captivated and motivated by eye-opening, life-changing experiences in nearby communities and all over the world. 100% of students complete at least two high-impact Engaged Learning experiences before graduation.
Though Rider is a train ride from Philadelphia and New York City, Rider still feels like a small-town haven. You’ll bump into friends — nearly 4,000 undergraduates and more than 900 graduate students — on tree-lined walkways and take study breaks in expansive green spaces. As you continue to find your path, you won’t go it alone. Your professors know more than just your name. They know who you are and what you dream to become. So become a Division I athlete on one of our 20 teams — or if club and intramural sports are more your speed, join one of our 25. Become a leader in one of our more than 150 student organizations and attend one of the more than 500 annual campus events.
Come find your footing with us. Explore what’s out there and what’s inside your own wild, unstoppable self.
