Founded in Trenton in 1865 as the Trenton Business College, Rider University took on the name of its first president Andrew Jackson Rider and remained in the capital city until 1959. Now based in Lawrence nearby, Rider continues to maintain strong ties with Trenton as both a civic and educational partner. Rider's School of Education has partnered with public elementary schools in Trenton to provide tutoring and mentoring to students from kindergarten through 8th-grade. Additionally, Rider offers "College Day" to Trenton public schools, bringing student scholars, athletes, and students involved in Greek life in to regularly lead discussions on higher-education goals, careers, study and time-management strategies, and social concerns. Rider's Westminster Choir College in Princeton has held concerts to support Trenton music programs and organizations, including the scholarship fund of the Trenton Children's Chorus.
