3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not part of the greek life at school but i know it can be expensive to join and it is a lot of work between planning activities and spending time with your brothers/sisters. They do not have specific housing on campus so some frats/sororities will rent houses off campus and some of them are pretty bad. They can throw good parties but for people to go to these they have to go off campus and that can be dangerous.

Off-Campus Housing: Honestly, im not too sure about this one, ive never tried to live off campus. However, ramapo is in a very wealthy area that is surrounded by big expensive houses so i doubt that there are too many off campus options for fairly poor college students.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The campus is beautiful in general. It has that woodsy atmosphere. Tons of benches and grassy areas to sit in. It also has some really old buildings that are cool and statues/art around the campus to add to the scenery. There are four or five computer labs, however during common hour its impossible to find a computer. We have two nice gyms, plenty of fields, the library is three stories i believe. the campus tries to hold events and when you get yourself involved it can really be a good time.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Ramapo has buses that take you into NYC or to other places. There are also buses to the bars. NYC is pretty close. The garden state mall and palisades are both decently close. Plus there is tons of shopping along 17. Not that many bars but if you are willing to travel to the city or just walk to alcohol allowed housing I'm sure you will find entertainment.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It honestly depends on where you live. It is a suitcase school so the social aspect is not that great. Living in the village or laurel is lovely because you get your own bedroom and so forth. the other dorm buildings you either share a single room with one or two others or a room with one other then a common room with your roomie and another set of people. You dont have to deal with floor bathrooms, every dorm room has its own. laundry is free. Overall it is certainly expensive but its a nice place to live.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: The food can be harsh on your stomach for the first week of eating it. Sometimes they can have really good nights, but most of the time its the same stuff. Its not horrible though

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: You can get a violation for having a shot glass (a decorative one) in your dorm room even if you are 21. You can get a violation for being at a party where someone else is under 21 even in an alcohol allowed area. Overall its too strict on alcohol rules.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: quiet area, many restaurant choices nearby

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are helpful. class sizes are small, which is good. They should offer more of a variety of courses though.

Diversity: the school is not very diverse but the people there are accepting of those who are different

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is really really nice! There are no community bathrooms- everyone has their own!

Ramapo generally does a good job of setting people up with roommates, as long as each person has an open mind and is willing to be friendly with different types of people. However, no two students are likely to have the same experience at Ramapo, and a negative side of the people on campus is dealing with the administrative offices, many of which look at students as an obstacle involved with their job. In order to get things accomplished, students must constantly nag, with unyielding tenacity. Like the administrative people, even student workers in the offices seem required to be surly and uninformed about important matters.

The classes were interesting and necessary, with a few exceptions. While it's important to get a well-rounded education, many students grow tired of the general education requirements after a while. However, once they get into courses within their major, students' interests in the education aspect of the College increase significantly. The professors at Ramapo are available for conferences, extra time, and help, in addition to scheduled class time; they value education on the subject you paid for rather than teaching you harsh lessons about the uncaring bureaucracy of life. Many will go the extra mile to ensure that you do better than you may have initially thought you would do. Sometimes this means the difference between passing and failing a course, or just a simple matter of saving some precious points on your GPA.
