3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Since the recent incidents of sexual assault on campus, there have been more resources readily available for students to take action and be a part of. Also, there are more resources for people who need therapy. It is unfortunate that these events have happened, but I think security has been on higher alert. This campus has always been safe besides these few incidents, so I do not think these few incidents should ruin the reputation of the school.

Overall Experience: The passion and experience that I see in professors is outstanding. I've had great experiences with all of my professors. They work very diligently and they make sure that you understand the material and this shows that they care. There are a variety of courses that are taught, since it is a liberal arts school and all are well taught by the professors. Professors think participation is a very important part of the student's grades.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career center is a very important aspect of school that not everyone takes advantage of. They offer so many opportunities such as job fairs, resume reviews, and internship workshops. The career center makes sure that students know how important it is to get a job after college and they do all in their power to make sure it happens. Alumni relations are also a very important aspect of the career center. Advisors work together to make sure students and alumni both have the correct resources for their careers.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I think the campus housing is one of the best I have seen during my college search. All of the dorm rooms are spacious and clean with your own bathroom. I always had a great experience and was satisfied with on campus housing. As you go through the years, the rooms only get better!

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I think Greek life is a good part of my campus. It shoes school involvement and passion. Many people are a part of Greek life on my campus and there are always different events and fundraisers for their philanthropies. This is a great way to get involved on campus and in the community as a whole. It shows upmost dedication and passion. If people are non-Greek they also do not feel left out or isolated from Greek life. Everyone gets along well.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I am not part of any varsity or intramural sports on campus, but attending games is a great experience. It is a fun way o get involved and show school spirit. Even though we are D-3, sports are very important and competitive at my school. We have great athletic facilities, such as the weight room, the fields, the courts, and the athletic trainer's office. Everything in the facilities are all brand new and appealing to college students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: One of the best features about my school is that it is small. This enhances classroom experiences because the professors know your name and they can work closely with you to improve your learning. With the college being small, it is also easy to get involved on campus and get an on-campus job. This is something that is important to me, since I have had the opportunity to get to know different staff and professors. I think I made the right choice for college. It has really shaped me both academically and as a person.

Health & Safety: I personally have always felt safe on campus walking alone at night, and at all hours of the night. Public safety is there if you need them and they will pick you up if you don't feel safe.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had 2 really awful professors, they were entirely unfair when it came to grading. Other than that I have had a really great experience with my courses and my professors most of them were very understanding of topics and conflicts. the small class sizes make this school more desirable because it is easier to learn when there aren't 50+ kids in one room.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most Bachelor degrees aren't worth much now so many people will have to go to grad school. It doesn't reflect on the school just the society. The school should consider Dual degree programs.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the fact that it is suite style and that there aren't any communal bathrooms. There is much more space in the rooms than most schools so that is definitely a plus.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are so many different organizations when it comes to Greek Life and they have a spot for almost everyone if you are looking to be in it.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are definitely not that important however the facilities are very nice and easy to get to. Many different opportunities are available at the gym and the fields are open to who ever would like to use them. Most intramural sports are non-existent and not taken seriously.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the school it just does not have a great program for my major (criminal justice). I will be completing this year and then transferring. The campus is wonderful and worth it if they have a program that is right for you

Campus Housing: Ramapo has nice up to date housing. Also there aren't any communal bathrooms which I am very happy about.

Greek Life: There is a Greek life on campus, but Ramapo is strict so the Frats and Sorority's do not really have open parties that often.

Athletics: Since there isn't a football team, the school lacks a lot of school spirit

Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't choose this school again because I feel like I did not get the fun college experience.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the teachers and the campus is stunning. It's fairly quite and the free printing is extremely helpful with getting my work done. Excellent social work staff all around and field placement is very flexible to student needs.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
