What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo College is a worthy, affordable alternative to many private schools in the area. The campus is visually very pretty, and the Ramapo Reservation is right across the street, offering excellent hiking trails with waterfalls, lakes, and vistas overlooking the campus and even glimpsing the distant New York City skyline. Because of its proximity to the reservation, there are also an abundant amount of animals (birds, deer, groundhogs, skunks, occaisionally even bears, and more!) that wander onto campus. While the woods are right across the street, New York City is less than an hour away, making it possible for students to accept jobs or internships in the city or near the city during times or on days when they aren't in class. The buildings and facilities are generally nice and up-to-date, with improvements and updates constantly being done on different buildings and computer labs. The nursing, science, and business buildings are in the best conditions, as they are the newest and have the latest technology and equipment. The academics are generally high-quality with few exceptions. For the most part, at least in my experience, classes will challenge you and teach you important skills and knowledge. Many of the professors are accessible and willing to work with you to help you be successful. In terms of career counseling, I feel Ramapo has some room for improvement. While the career advisors are helpful in checking your resume and offering tips on how to get hired, Ramapo lacks connections with many companies and lists many menial positions on the career site for which college degrees aren't even required.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo College holds a multitude of rich educational opportunities and experiences within and outside of the classroom. One of the most important, yet simple considerations when looking at a school is looking to see whether or not the students are happy. As a student who lives on campus, I can say with certainty that Ramapo was the best decision. The college is a community that nurtures the intellectual curiosity of its students through rendering accessible a plethora of resources and opportunities. These opportunities include career advisement and networking events, tutoring services for no charge, small classrooms with no more than 35 students a course, research experience with academic professors, and over one hundred clubs and organizations to join and meet other like-minded individuals. Professors are accessible and with small class sizes they get to know their students and it personalizes the experience for both parties involved. Ramapo College has fostered an inclusive and diverse environment for their students to truly take advantage of and draw from as they move forward in their educational and occupational endeavors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking to attend a college that offers nothing more than an adequate education than Ramapo fits the bill. If you are looking to have fun you better join a fraternity because the social life here is non existent. Smoking weed is acceptable but if you are caught drinking be prepared to pay a hefty fine and do some community service. Overall i wish i went anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a wonderful, clean campus with great professors and a helpful administrative staff. One of its biggest downfalls is that the professors often live far away from campus and don't hold a great deal of office hours and most students are commuters so the campus life is quiet. Even though a lot of students are commuters, there is still a heavy party atmosphere on weekends for those in the dorms and the commuters who stay with friends. Food on campus is decent and the book store is over priced. The value of your degree won't be as high as most NJ universities because people never heard of Ramapo but at least you have a degree and, combined with the teaching program, it makes you more marketable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a pretty good school if you like it small. I'm currently a freshman in Ramapo College and I quite enjoy my experience. A very beautiful campus, with a high affinity to nature. With a variety of extracurricular activities to do, you won't get bored that easily here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If I had the opportunity to reverse time and rethink my undergraduate college, I would still apply to Ramapo and only Ramapo. My fellow students were some of the most diverse, artistic, well-rounded, and intelligent group of students I have ever known. It has been said that we are a combination of everyone we have ever known. If that is true, I will always be proud to be a culmination of what Ramapo College has to offer. Courses in any major are challenging, intensive, and comprehensive. However, our professors genuinely enjoy teaching and making themselves available. Their goal is to challenge you, test you, and help you grow. Easy A's may be difficult to come by, but if you do get higher grades than you could have possibly imagined, it is because you have earned them. There are plenty of great times to be had on campus. There are many friends to be made and events to attend for students engaged in a wide variety of interests. You will meet some of your best friends to help you through the hard times while you enjoy the good times. I will always be grateful to Ramapo College for unlocking the potential I did not realize I had.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ramapo college is an amazing place if you love the quiteness and openness of the campus. Can be boring at times but I love it. The food is pretty good and changes every day. The caffateria is even open at 10:30-1 in the morning for mid night snacks and brain food. The class sizes are small which is another big reason why I love this school. The teachers are very helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Due to some rape cases that were blown up...everyone now faces hefty fines($500) for drinking and possible expulsion. But, if you're part of the baseball team or basketball team, feel free to have no qualms and do whatever you want. (for example: chase down some deer or get chased down by a pizza truck...) Yes, there's no denying that the campus is beautiful and the dorms are tolerable (no communal bathrooms), but its a gilded cage--enjoy your beautiful prison.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Ramapo. From the moment I got here I felt safe and comfortable. Thanks to the awesome resources and wonderful staff I am able to focus on my academics while also having fun. Events are always going on and people are friendlier than you'd imagine. This place is the best.
