Alumni Gym, Rider College, 2083 Lawrenceville Road, Lawrenceville, NJ

Alumni Gym (Rider College)
2083 Lawrenceville Road
Lawrenceville, NJ 08648

Capacity 1650

Thick clumps of dust and mold cling to its crusty stucco walls and ceiling, and the low-hanging fluorescent cage-lamps assure that a migraine headache will accompany you on your drive home. Most of its 1,650 seats are bone-hard.

Even though Alumni Gym is tiny (the 333rd largest out of 345 Division I teams), it’s cozy and fits the Lawrenceville, New Jersey campus nicely. In the main entrance is a nice Athletics Hall of Fame for all Rider’s best athletes. After navigating a couple of hallways you enter to the main foyer, where a couple double doors brings you to the gym. They pack it in most  nights and the fans bring passion to the game. The only discernible feature to this gym is the mold on the slanted roof.
