Student faculty ratio: 12:1

International student body: 61 countries, 190 students (3%) mostly from China, India, Canada, France, and the UK.

When presenting Rider University to prospective students, we highlight the 5 Rider Advantages:

  1. Our Academic Distinctions 
  2. Professional Preparation
  3. World-class Location
  4. Global Perspective
  5. Outstanding Student Support

1. Academic Distinctions

  • US News and World Report in 2011 ranked Rider as #21 among 200 universities in the North Region. We are a top-tier school in the North Region.
  • The Westminster Choir College is known internationally among musicians and music schools. The professors are professional musicians famous in their fields.
  • Our Accounting and Business programs are accredited by AACSB – only 5% of business programs in the world have this accreditation.
  • 97% of our professors hold a PhD or highest degree in their field. All classes are taught by professions, never by graduate assistants.

2. Professional Preparation

  • 90% of our students get a job or start graduate school within 6 months after graduating from Rider.
  • Internships are possible and encouraged. The Career Service Office works closely with academic offices to help students find internships. Examples of companies where our students interned and/or were hired: Barclays Bank, Dow Jones, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cisco Systems, Johnson & Johnson, Estee Lauder, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, MTV, CNN America, United Nations, Wells Fargo, the Washington Opera House, and others.

3. World-class Location

  • We are just 1-hour train ride from New York City or 30-minute drive to Philadelphia. It is also very easy travel to other cities (Washington DC, Boston, Toronto, etc.).
  • We have two campuses: the main campus is in Lawrenceville, a safe, small suburban town; the second campus is in Princeton, which is known for being one of the best small college towns in America. Both Lawrenceville and Princeton are safe and affluent towns. Most classes are offered in Lawrenceville; the Princeton campus is for the Westminster Choir College only.
  • Free shuttle buses take students to both campuses. On the weekends the shuttle makes stops at shopping malls, downtown Princeton, and other stores. Students can also rent a car on campus.

4. Global Perspective

  • We offer many short-term, semester and year-long opportunities to study abroad. The Center for International Education organizes trips and events for students.
  • There is an International Students Association on campus, promoting integration between international and American students on and off-campus.

5. Outstanding Student Support

  • Student access to faculty is a top priority; most faculty give students their cell phone numbers.
  • We have more than 150 student clubs and organizations, including: Asian Students at Rider, Latin American Students Organization, Organization of Caribbean-Affiliates Students, German Club, Slavic Club, Japanese Pop Culture Society, French Club and others.
  • We promote social responsibility: through many opportunities for volunteer work in the United States and abroad, students learn to help others, network and become responsible global citizens.
  • Athletics - official website for sports: www.gobroncs.com, plus 16 athletic clubs such as Equestrian Club, Table Tennis Club, Swimming, Ice Hockey and Baseball, among others.
