What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo College offers a lot to it's students. All the buildings are accessible to all students. I love that I can go to the fitness center (gym) whenever i want all year round. I love that my boyfriend can play guitar in the music studios even though he isn't a music major. there is just a lot of resources to take advantage of. We are constantly updated on events that occur on campus through our Ramapo daily digest which is an email news letter. Students are given all they can in order to further their education and move forward in life because the professors really take pride in their student's learning, and the offices are all ready to help any student. I am a commuter now and honestly I feel just as apart of the Ramapo family as I did when I dormed. I am here every weekend to see my friends and have a good time, maybe even go on a hike at the Ramapo Reservation just to pet some dogs.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo College is a great school for students who strive for personalized learning. A school large enough to meet new people, and small enough to see your friends all the time. There are so many opportunities for students to have fun on and off campus! Including clubs, organizations, and Greek life events open to all students. Our initiative as a school is for no students to want to go home on the weekends. This school always has something going on, students just have to participate. As for learning, we have the Cahill Career Development center that hosts job fairs, and events for resume building etc. a very useful office to take one's major and provide hands on experience in the workforce. I love my school, and i urge people to choose Ramapo College. Plus on a side note, second best dorms in Jersey next to Princeton!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely adore Ramapo College of New Jersey! I transferred here this past year, and my experience has been phenomenal. I have never encountered such a lovely, welcoming group of students before. Ramapo feels like home, and it felt that way from the beginning. When I attended accepted students' day I could just feel that this was the school for me. There are so many opportunities at Ramapo. This school has afforded me so many opportunities which I can put on my resume. I did more last semester than I did all year at my previous school. It astounds me to think about how much I have been able to accomplish here in just two semesters, and I am beyond excited to keep going! This school has lit a fire in me and I am thrilled to be able to pursue any dream or ambition that I can think up. It is overall a fantastic school, and I wish that I had started out here as opposed to transferring from a different university. I am only a sophomore, but I am already feeling sad and reluctantly counting down the days until I am going to have to leave!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo College of New Jersey ensures that the safety of their students comes first. With approximately 600 cameras on campus, and public safety being in our near reach we are highly protected. The prevention of alcohol and drugs are also a taken seriously, and Ramapo's staff makes sure that they're students are knowledgeable of public safety policies , in which a printed sheet of the schools' emergency numbers are taped on every on campus student's refrigerator. Ramapo also possesses the luxury of having great suits.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school isn't too bad.The size of the school, in opinion is it's best asset, it's the smallest college in New Jersey so you don't have to worry about walking too much. The buildings are also connected, so its easy to find your classes. Also, people here that genuinely wants to help students further there education, and that will give you beneficial advise. Most of the staff, I've encountered are friendly and wise.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I would brag about the majors, which are very important to students. As a liberal arts school, they provide a well-rounded education for students to venture into different aspects of concentration. Also, the food and the its hours of service isn't too bad. They provide a variety of food and if you're a vegetarian/ vegan there's a lot you can choose from, from tofu to even vegetable pizza.On weekdays, the cafeteria is open until 2:00 am, and on weekends until 12:00 am.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The worst thing about my school is that if you don't own a vehicle, it is difficult to walk/travel anywhere you desire. Once you step off the school's compound you end up on a high way. There are no nearby stores or any sort of attraction that students can enjoy without taking the school's shuttle.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is absolutely beautiful! It changes with the season breathtakingly and animals are often seen passing through. It is a lively college community on the weekdays but on the weekends, the campus is quiet. But most importantly the college needs more diversity! One can never have too much diversity!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo is a really great college! I am a commuter, so I am on campus four days a week, but all my professors always offer to come up on days we don't meet or even weekends, to sit down and help with whatever you may need. The professors are always willing to help and that is a big plus to Ramapo. Even though the closest deli to Ramapo that is off campus is about a 10 minute drive, it is located in a nice area a across from the campus is a reservation where you can go hiking and just enjot being outside.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as if I'm getting a personalized education at Ramapo, because of how invested the professors and faculty members are into seeing me succeed. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved on campus if you look for them, and you can really get as much out of your experience here as you put into it. Overall, I definitely feel like I am being prepared to be successful in my life after college, as a person and as a worker.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo college is a school for everyone to feel involved and comfortable. It such a tight community and everyone knows each other and looks after each other. Being that it is a small institution the class room size is something to really appreciate. The teachers are always involved throughout your academic career and care about you every step of the way. You're not just a number to them you actually matter.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My time so far at Ramapo College has bee an amazing one. I've been a member of the "ramafam" since high school because of my participation in a summer camp at the college. Now a young adult, I can take complete advantage of all the amazing resources the school has to offer me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo is in a beautiful area; a reservation with mountain trails and waterfalls is within walking distance. The campus is small and lovely, with a pond and spiritual center in the middle. Ramapo is home to the Krame Center, the leading center for mindfulness in the NY/NJ area, and hosts lots of free mindfulness-based events, on top of having a mindfulness club and amazing yoga teacher training program. I LOVE my mindful community at Po. Academics are good; small classes with teachers that are well educated and truly care about your learning. You can take a bus to NYC from campus for $14 round trip, about a 45 minute trip with no traffic. The population is mostly local Jersey kids. Being from out of state I didn't know a single person, and people in the states just aren't as friendly as in the islands, but I have made a few true life-long friends here. They also made it very easy for me to study away. The dining hall is not very good, especially for vegetarian/vegans, I would reccomend getting an on campus apartment with a kitchen rather than a meal plan. They have also kind of screwed me over with housing selection a couple times, but overall, I will be graduating next year and would never trade my experience at Po even if it meant snow-free college! The pros definitely outweigh the cons and I am very grateful to have found Ramapo.
