Rider Reunions Tips
Who's Coming to Reunions?
Which Greeks Are Coming to Reunions?
Give to Rider

Reunions are for everyone! This year, we're focused on bringing Greeks back to campus. We'll reconnect at a Lunch Party, we'll toast each other's successes and restore our Greek foundation.  We'll mark the milestone of the Great Class of 1967 - 50th, the 50th anniversary of the GEMS program, the 20th anniversary of Biopsychology and Behavioral Neurosciences and we'll toast our accomplished alumni at The Rider Alumni Awards. We'll mingle with  Rider's politicos at a Rebovich gathering and we'll induct our fellow Broncs into the Athletics Hall of Fame. Be sure to join us at the Olympic Garden Party where you'll reminisce with members of the faculty and administration, past and present, and where you'll have the opportunity to greet President Gregory and Mrs. Polly Dell'Omo. We'll shake it up on the dance floor and sit back and enjoy the shenanigans of a Lip Sync Battle. Wear your School Colors, or your Greek Letters or Pins! Togas optional!
