Your Goals Are Within Reach

When Rider opened its doors in 1865, many members of our inaugural class were Civil War veterans. Today, as a proud Yellow Ribbon school and a Top 10 Military Friendly(R) School, the University continues its tradition of partnering with former members of the Armed Forces as they advance their education.

I chose Rider because it is veteran-friendly, which was most important to me. There is a long list of people at Rider who have helped me. Without their help, I would not have been able to continue school.
