Facing budget shortfalls, Rider University considers selling its Westminster Choir College campus - Philip Sean Curran, Central New Jersey

Financially troubled Rider University, facing deep budget shortfalls in the coming years, is considering selling its Westminster Choir College campus in Princeton and moving the school to Rider’s Lawrenceville campus. The possible relocation was reported first by the Rider student newspaper, the Rider News, on Monday, something that caught town officials by surprise and has raised concerns among alumni and others connected to the school. The paper reported that Rider President Gregory G. Dell’Omo had spoken last week at Westminster to say his administration was considering such a decision, this at a time when Rider is missing its enrollment projections and looking at budget holes of more than $13 million in two years.
