New Student Orientation introduces new students and their families to life as a Rider Bronc and prepares them for the transition to Rider.
Welcome to Rider, we can’t wait to meet you!
Orientation is designed to help students transition to college and assist family members in understanding their students’ experience during this exciting time. Orientation will introduce you to the culture, traditions, and expectations of Rider University.
Visit the New Student Orientation page for more information.
Orientation will be held online. On June 14, you will receive an email, sent to your Rider email address, letting you know that you have been enrolled in the Virtual Orientation Canvas course. Once you accept the course invitation, you will have access to all of the orientation information and modules you must complete as a new student.
Several live sessions with campus administrators, staff and faculty are offered to supplement your Virtual Orientation experience. An updated listing of these sessions will be posted to https://linktr.ee/riderorientation and you can register in advance to receive reminders about upcoming sessions.
All new students are expected to complete the required components of Virtual Orientation by June 28. Please refer to the main page of the virtual orientation for a list of requirements.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be welcoming new students to campus for Camp Rider!

There will be 8 sessions hosted between June 28-July 1 and July 12-19. Register early for the best availability as programs are expected to fill up quickly.
