A lifelong connection

When you graduate, your relationship with your alma mater is just the beginning. As you embark on a lifelong connection, you are invited to participate in alumni-specific events and benefits, networking and business opportunities, volunteer engagement programs, continuing education, travel and much more.

Hundreds of Rider alumni, students, faculty, and staff came out on Oct. 28 to celebrate their cranberry connection and enjoy the festivities at the University's first Homecoming event since 2004. View photos of Homecoming 2017.
