    School Overview

    Rider University is a private, coeducational, and nonsectarian institution located in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, which is conveniently located 35 miles from Philadelphia and 48 miles from New York City. In addition to the Lawrenceville campus, Rider also offers a satellite campus in Princeton, New Jersey. Founded after the Civil War in 1865, two men opened a business school in New Jersey and named it the Trenton Business College. After a couple years, the school grew and allowed women to attend in 1896. With the addition of a liberal arts academic program in 1957, the school changed its name to Rider College to honor the college’s first president. Over the years, more academic programs were added and, finally, in 1994, the school changed its name to its present day title to reflect the vast array of academic degree programs offered. The school also moved to Lawrenceville where it currently remains.
