Congratulations soon-to-be Rider University Graduate!


Pre-ordered Commencement academic attire can be picked up at Senior SendOff on April 26, 2018, noon to 7 p.m. in the BLC Cavalla Room.  Graduates will receive a souvenir black gown and cap, along with a hood in the appropriate color to designate the school and a tassel.  


In support of Rider’s commitment to sustainability, graduates wear eco-friendly caps and gowns that are made from 100 percent, post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, with an average of 23 bottles used to make each gown. Partial funding for the GreenWeaverTM gowns has been provided by the Rider University Energy and Sustainability Steering Committee (ESSC).
