College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never looked for, or knew that Ramapo could help me look for, off campus housing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I rarely get off of campus. When I do leave campus I go home, or to the mall with my friends, during the daytime.

2 College Freshman

Administration: After the incident that happened this year, Ramapo is becoming more strict about everything and anything they can be strict about.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They can mess up your financial aid and then there is nothing you can do about it. They basically tell you that the problem is yours even though they are the ones who screwed up.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food at Ramapo College has its days where everything is nasty, but on some days there is really good food, and on others its just ok.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Ramapo College of New Jersey has some of the nicest dorms in New Jersey. The campus is small so I am able to walk to my classes with ease and not take a 2 hour bus ride to class. The food courts could serve better food, but the food tastes good most of the time overall. Almost everyone that I have encountered here are very nice people. The cost for this school is reasonable. The part of Ramapo College that is my favorite is a place called JLee's where you can go and relax with your friends, play video games, and have some popcorn.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek Life here.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't have much knowledge about the sports here.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not too sure about this one.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's a "meh" for me.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They're going to screw you over anyway.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: There is not much to do around here and there is nowhere really to live as everything around here is very expensive.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Really nothing special to report here honestly, you'll find who you find.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health center is literally in the middle of the parking lot so you have to walk really far. You also have to make an appointment so god forbid if you're really sick.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is just honestly nothing to do here. Everyone who does live here pretty much goes home on the weekends and those who stay have really nothing to do because of the new rules. Everyone here also acts like the are still in high school.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some of the professors here, even those in my major seem under-qualified and inept. Many of them have been here since the school has opened and thus are too old to be teaching here effectively.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a small school so the alumni network is not great, and you will have to do most of the work if you want to find a job as employers do not come here for recruitment much.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life here is honestly just like cliques in high schools. They have a holier than though attitude and most of their parties are honestly pretty lame. Most of the frats here are whack.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: No one really watches our sports teams so going to games is not really a big event.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Again this campus is in the middle of nowhere, so finding off campus housing is impossible, and your options are not great. Also proximity is not very close and very expensive.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: This campus is in the middle of nowhere so good luck finding places to explore off campus.

1 College Freshman

Administration: The administration runs this place like a literal prison. You have to sign in and out of buildings if you are a guest. They also raised all the fines on violations so you are literally paying and arm and a leg if you get caught drinking. But worry not, you won't get caught drinking here because it is becoming a dry campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a scholarship here and they were for the most part, pretty helpful with assisting me.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: The administration has basically turned this place into a high school. There is nowhere you can go if you want to have fun, so everyone just goes home on weekends or is in the process of transferring. There is nothing to do off campus here either.

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.
