4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The campus is fun and safe

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.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Some good parties but the kids can be pretty snotty. Every weekend you can find something to do pretty easily

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

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

Ramapo College’s party scene tends to revolve around the on-campus apartments, where noise complaints are less likely to occur and the space per room is large enough to warrant a party. Parties at Ramapo tend to be smaller, especially parties not associated with Greek life in any way, with attendees numbering between 10 and 40 (though larger parties do happen). Larger parties, some of which have upwards of 100 people, tend to take place in The Village, where the outdoor quad allows for some spillover; however, large parties or parties with guests outdoors attract Campus Security and tend to be broken up. Students who are caught serving alcohol to underage students (or are underage themselves) can expect fines and possible disciplinary action.

The so-called “party days," when most students tend to have parties, are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Due to a high number of commuters and students who live nearby, much of the population runs home every weekend to have their parents do their laundry for them, thereby achieving the true college experience and preparing them for the real world. The most easily accessible and popular club off campus is Pub 17, located on Route 17, just a few minutes away from campus. There are other options available for students, but most of these involve traveling much farther distances.

Did You Know?
Mahwah still has "blue laws" in effect, which limit how late the vast majority of businesses stay open and keep many businesses closed on weekends.
