Uh Oh!!! Students Aren’t Too Happy With Rider University
A pricey N.J. college reportedly has the country’s worst dorms, according to a new ranking. NJ.com reported that Rider University in Lawrenceville, NJ has the country’s worst dorms for living. The university is ranked No. 1 in the Princeton Review for the category called “Is that a Dorm?”, which portrays dorm rooms where students are not happy with on-campus living.
The university is well aware of the poor reviews and according to a spokeswoman, Kristine Brown, “We are in the midst of a $15 million bond investment for residence hall improvements”. Renovations have been completed for three of the dorms on campus and will be starting on another three buildings this coming winter. These upgrades will include everything from more efficient bathrooms, lighting, commons areas, furniture and more.
NJ Advance Media survey realses the average Rider University undergraduate paid about $41,000 in tuition and fees last year, not including room and board which typically adds on a few thousand dollars more. On the bright side, Rider University was ranked among the nation’s 384 best colleges in the country.
