Rider Reunions Tips
Who's Coming to Reunions?
Give to Rider

It's "Party Gras" time as we bring Crescent City flair to Rider Reunions 2014!  This year The Amazing Kreskin will be on hand to capture our imaginations with his wild mentalist talents!  Start your day with the 5K — join us for a casual morning walk or kick up the pace and enter to win!!  The Olde Guarde Society will join the fun on Saturday with an induction lunch marking the 50th Reunion of the Class of '64.  Be sure to join us at the "Garden District" Party on the Plaza where you'll reminisce with members of the faculty and administration, past and present.  We'll toast our accomplished Alumni Award recipients and our inductees in the Science Stairway of Fame at The Rider Alumni Awards, and we'll induct our fellow Broncs into the Athletics Hall of Fame.  Save the date for a memory-making day.  Wear your Rider colors -- we'll add the beads!
