4 College Sophomore

Academics: professors are great. workload depends on the professor

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: a lot of people attend the basketball games. i think if we had a football team, then that would be more entertaining

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: not great but probably better than a lot of places

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: most restaurants nearby offer discounts

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: i don't think anyone really cares if you are apart of greek life or not. people don't treat greeks differently because they are greeks

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.

2 College Sophomore

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!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's always something, and communication is very poor!

1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They are such pains and always cause problems for everyone. Parking is ridiculous! They will give you 3 $50 tickets at a time!

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: I understand acceptance, but all of college political stuff is about gays, I support it, but I'm tired of hearing about women's rights and gay rights.

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: The events and student life here is terrible, no-one participates, and everyone goes home on the weekends.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The greenery around the campus is very unique and the class size is really nice. The professors all know your name and they recognize you around campus.

2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It is very hard to find someone that is not judgmental, and doesn't have unrealistic expectations. Girls here aren't even really pretty (inside and out).

2 College Sophomore

Majors: The majors that Ramapo offers are generic and non-diverse.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: Internships are the only way to be anything, and everything is so competitive, and not everyone has a chance to have opportunities.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: For a progressive college, progressive food options are just not there.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not interested in Greek life and have no knowledge of how it works.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have no experience with off-campus housing.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: No-one really even recognizes the fact that we have sports teams. There is not a large student population active in athletics.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The college is in the hills of New Jersey in a rich area. There is not much shopping to be done, and there is absolutely no nightlife. The area is mundane and boring.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Ramapo is an extremely safe campus that takes care of its students

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is amazing and absolutely love it.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The campus is fun and safe

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.
