2 College Freshman

Athletics: In terms of school spirit, Ramapo has nearly none. During the campus tours and orientation, students would say that the basketball games are big for the school and a lot of students would go and it became a big deal--only to actually come to the school and realize that barely anyone went to the basketball games because they were on the weekend when most people go home.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Dont really pay attention to them because we dont have a team worth paying attention to

3 College Senior

Athletics: We have a decent fan base on campus I would be personally more involved if we had a football team. All athletes use the same gym as non athletes and the facility is great

3 College Student

Athletics: It doesn't seem to be that interesting here. I wish we had a football team, at least.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many people wish there was a little more school spirit when it comes to sports and there is no football, or hockey teams anymore which many believe would raise morale

Ramapo College is a Division III school, as far as athletics are concerned, and as such, the attendance, media coverage, and funding tend to be modest. There is some recruiting, and scholarships are available for athletic students looking to attend Ramapo, although talented walk-on athletes are also considered. Some of the popular teams at Ramapo are men's and women's volleyball, men's and women's soccer, men's basketball, and the dance team. Overall, the facilities that house these sports on campus are well-kept.

Intramural sports are available for those not interested in varsity sports but in fun activities like the very popular ultimate Frisbee. These student-run sports tend to be friendly, and are best played with groups of friends. Much of the sign-up happens in the Bradley Center, the large athletics complex located near the entrance of campus. The Bradley Center also houses a full-sized swimming pool, a rock wall, and a gym fully equipped and open to all students and those with Ramapo IDs. The gym can be crowded during busy times of the day (i.e., in the early evening), but those willing to get up early can have basically the whole gym to themselves. There are several yoga and stress reduction classes available to students, as well, along with dance classes and workout sessions available for credits.

Best Place to Take a Walk
The entire campus is beautifully maintained and hilly enough to warrant walking. The Ramapo Reservation is five minutes from campus.
