            2005-2009, BSBA, Marketing and Advertising

            Choosing Rider University was easy based on my selection criteria: a reputable business program, the personal touch of a private school, and the opportunity to play ice hockey at the club level. The guidance and support of my Professor's, leadership programs, and the campus community are reasons why I strongly recommend Rider.

            My experience at Rider was wonderful --- met great people (Hill & Poyda!) and received a great education (accounting & decision sciences). Rider facilitated my entry into Johnson & Johnson, the starting point of my 30 year health care career.

            Choosing Rider was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. Their diverse faculty represents a broad spectrum of real world industry experience (especially in the School of Business). Rider is attended by a surprisingly large population of international students which helps gain an appreciation for cultural and collegial diversity. The campus setting is gorgeous and inspirational.
