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

4 College Freshman

Weather: It depends on the person, the weather is cooler as you are near more mountains, but it is great.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I can't wait to join

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I only explored off campus housing after I accepted on campus and I almost wish I would have lived off campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I believe everything is in place for a reason. Ramapo is a safe campus.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was able to take everything for what it was. I kept track of my deadlines and filled out one paper at a time.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are pretty good, and the registration process isn't awful if you take the time beforehand to figure out what classes you want.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: There's barely any parties on campus that are any good. The majority of them get busted by Public Safety within a couple of hours. The only other option for partying is paying for a cab to go to a frat party that probably won't be that great anyway.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't really a huge thing on campus--once you join a frat or a sorority though, it seems like those people are the only people you hang out with.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A good amount of kids smoke weed--sometimes the smell can be really strong coming from the residence halls, even in the middle of the day. Also, there can sometimes be parties on campus but there aren't a whole lot.

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.
