| So far, my experience at Rider has been awesome. Yes, a lot of people do go home on the weekends, but if you decide to get out of your dorm room and actually get involved, you will have no problem making friends. The business school does challenge you, and definitely prepares you for a career. The thing I like most about Rider is all the resources they have to offer. I was able to land a great internship because Rider has great connections with so many corporate businesses in the area. It is very easy to have a good time here and most people do genuinely care about their education |

| Education/Faculty - It really varies on what kind of professors you'll have. I've had it all. They've been informative, inspirational, sadistic, apathetic, condescending, funny. For the most part, you'll get something out of it. For better or worse.|
Social (The juicier stuff) - I was a commuter so I can't say a whole lot of good about the student life. You can't talk to anyone, especially girls, without their stupid "go away, creeper" defense mechanisms being thrown at you. I didn't really make a lot of friends here just because I wanted to say hello to new people. I hated it. Most of the ones who were/are my friends came from schools I had previously attended with. There's my silver lining.
Population-wise, it's pretty diverse. Every race and religion is present. It's pretty safe around here with public safety running things.Overall (as far as my experience is concerned), I'd advise against gong here if you wanna meet new people. A lot of students are just unto themselves. They'll admit it too. If you're the cubby-hole type, then by all means go for it. Rider just turned out not to be my type of school in the social aspect. Got a degree though...heh.

| Here's an idea of what I did in one of my education classes one day: I drew a picture. Not because I was bored, that was the assignment. I can safely tell you this: if you are expecting to be challenged in their education program, don't go there. More importantly, the school's diploma carries absolutely zero weight in any school (or business for that matter). You'll get "Rider... now where is that?" If I had the choice, I would never go to Rider again. |
