4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They throw some pretty great parties but the amount they recruit is too damn high,

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Ive grown up around here so im a bit biased but its a beautiful area, close to NYC and has every type of shop and restaurant you could ever want within ten minutes of the school

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Great selection of majors with professors who have worked in their fields of instruction.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: They have one of the best buisness schools around with a sophisticated building and a massive staff. Resources and study tools are plenty and professors are easy to contact and meet with

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Awesome parties at some awesome houses. Its easy to get around mahwah and no house is more than 10 minutes off campus

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are very professional and come to class with a helpful attitude. They understand you have other obligations in life and work with you to get the curriculum completed. The facilities are fantastic with tons of study spots nestled around campus

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive any financial aid. Applying for the scholarships are tips for getting financial aid but there are very limited scholarships given out from the school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in one of the new dorms allows for an enjoyable experience. Worst options are the older dorms such as Linden and Pine. The social atmosphere is great, including the LLC program for freshmen. The cost is decent and so is the convenience. The housing process is simple.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Printing on campus is very convenient. It's free and most students enjoy that. Network reliability is good only until scheduling for classes.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The cold weather is what i looked for in a campus. But the snow or sometimes unkept campus make it a little difficult to walk around campus safely.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is transportation to malls and such. Being under age I do not go to bars or clubs or take part in underage nightlife.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public safety is constantly around. They take care of the students if they need to and secure the campus.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The only places to go would need transportation to and that is on a highway. I have not experienced many activities or shopping nearby because I'm not sure where it is.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have not noticed drug or alcohol visibility. People on campus know others drink on campus but no one is peer pressured to take part. The policy on campus is strictly enforced.

College Freshman

Academics: I do not have a declared major. As an undeclared major I am experiencing different classes in the different academic schools such as the business and science schools.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is not typically diverse. The majority of the campuses ethnicity is white. It seems as if not many students are accepting and segregate themselves. There are no challenges in sexual orientation. The campus is very accepting of the LGBT community.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I have made many friends.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics are prestigious and the amount of students per classroom is small.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Many students smoke marijuana and drink alcohol.

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining hall closes before dinner time even begins in the average household. There are only 2 small dining halls on campus and the food is disgusting, unhealthy, and has laxatives in it- it gives everyone stomach problems and is not worth the money at all.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is the only way to be social at Ramapo but the sororities are small and cliquey and the fraternities are NOTHING compared to real universities.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is not bad- there is all of route 17 to chose from and nothing is too far.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The only frat houses are off campus and you have to take a 50 dollar taxi to them in the mountains. The shuttle brings you to the mall, cvs, train station and one other plaza at ridiculous times.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere on campus offers little to no interaction- people avoid getting involved in the few programs available and there are no activities

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: there were good parties practically every night on campus mostly tuesday nights and weekends until on campus parties got cancelled completely.

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.
