This month in Rider

Nov. 10, 1939
At the 75th Founders Day, honorary degrees were given out. Rider celebrated with former New Jersey Gov. Harold G. Hoffman, the president of Beaver College and the top brass of the New Jersey Department of Education. The new Rider theme song “Ride on with Rider” was sent to Glee Club.

“Ride on with Rider, there’s victory in sight:
Get on and ride on with Rider, we’ll win another fight.
With the Purple and Gold to inspire us —
We’re bound to win, we’ve got to win —
Oh (Old Villanova), what a spot you’re in.
Oh, Ride on with Rider and let the lion roar:
Fight on for Rider and fight and fight some more.
Three quarters of a century, and still we’re going strong,
So Ride on with Rider as we sing our battle song.
Ride, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap.
Ride, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap, giddyap.
Go to town and mow ‘em down, give a cheer for victory.”
