2 College Senior

Overall Experience: If I was asked to rate this my freshman year, it would've been okay. Going into Senior year Ramapo College has changed many rules in order to appeal to outsider eyes, completely ignoring the pleas and suggestions of the students and staff. It has set a lot of people back. While initially students appealed to this college because it is liberal arts and the set up was unique, now the recent changes induced has taken away from the personality of the college and made it more difficult to schedule time, take certain classes. They recently unknowingly changed the housing system without notice to upperclassmen that instead of a credit based system, it now depends on who has the larger group (who has more friends), eliminating the senior housing that freshmen such as my self were not allowed to get until now, yet it has been snatched away from sophomores who had larger groups. Along with this has come taking away certain days due to them wanting to put in more class time, such as eliminating Reading Day, taking away an additional component of classes that was to be used for life experience with the work and instead making class times longer... As a student, and knowing many other students, College Life does not seem to exist anymore with the experience of Ramapo and the strict rules set up over the years, in addition to the change in organization/class time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Even though the work load can be a little bit overwhelming and seem impossible to get done, the professors always offer assistance and recommend other resources for individuals who are struggling.

The class sizes are bearable, not large but not too small.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career aspect on the campus is pretty good. There is at least 1 career/job a semester . The cahill center does a great job at promoting and emailing students about potential job opportunities on and off campus, job fairs, and work study. There are also alumni that work at the school who contribute by having workshops and discussing different resources and opportunities as well.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I personally feel safe on campus despite the bears that appear every now and then. However, others may not due to some reports about sexual harrassment.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Everything is ok except the amount of space in certain dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greeks on campus make an attempt to make a change in the community.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: All athletes on campus show their school spirit. However there is not a big crowd at the games

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy being a student at Ramapo College of New Jersey. I originally attended the school because of the small classes. I've grown to enjoy it even more because of the supportive and down to earth professors, friendly and welcoming students, and the different resources available in order for you to succeed. Overall my first year was quite interesting and I wouldn't mind do it all over again.

The only thing that I would change about the po is the lack of events during the weekends. If you are someone who often stays on campus, there is not much activities on campus to entertain you.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of my professors have been wonderful. They are intelligent, easy to work with, are clear with instructions, and provide a great learning environment. I had one bad professor, but luckily because there are teacher reviews at the end of the semester I was able to express my opinion in a professional way. I hope the reviews are really read, noticed, and attended to.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are blue lights frequently on campus which can be pressed that contact Public Safety. I feel extremely safe walking around on campus, especially if I am with a friend or two. I know a friend who was drugged and raped and she received adequate support after the situation occurred.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is convenient to get to classes and paycaf or Birch. It is right near the Ramapo Reservation which is a great place to go to when it is nice out. Housing is relatively easy as long as the deadlines are followed. Living there is very expensive so unless you have a big scholarship or a lot of money I suggest commuting if possible. But it is harder to make close friends if you commute, but usually it gets easier throughout the year.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life does not affect the social atmosphere in a negative way. In fact it has a positive influence on many of the students who join Greek life. It provides a sense of family for the people who join. Those who do not join are not treated any differently than those who did.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are great and there is a wide variety of courses to take

5 College Sophomore

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
