There isn't much to do socially. Everyone goes home on the weekends or just stays inside their dorms, there isn't much to do. However, the people here are nice, friendly and you would definitely find people who you get along with well but because there aren't many activities going on, on campus you have to make sure to put yourself out there! You won't easily find people if you keep to yourself or just go about your day normally, you actually have to try hard to meet people because everyone stays inside.

If students are looking for a cozy, outdoorsy tone, they will find it in Mahwah. Mahwah is a large town surrounded by the Ramapo Mountains. It is an old community that dates back to the Revolutionary War.There are many good restaurants, but bars are limited. There are no tall buildings or flashing lights, but a bus will take students to New York City if they wish. New York State is a also just a few minutes away, so most students go there if they want to party. Wildlife is everywhere in Mahwah! Frequently students will get Bear Warnings. There is a nature reserve down the street that is perfect for hiking at any time of the year. In the reserve, students can sit by waterfalls, climb up mountains, or stroll around the many lakes. Horse farms are everywhere. Students can sit on the side of the road and watch the horses as they graze. If students are looking for a city feel, Ramapo is not right for them. However, if they love nature and the outdoors, Mahwah is the place to be.

Residence life on campus is one of the best perks of being a student at Ramapo. The residence halls and apartment style living options are spacious and have many great features (free cable, free wifi, AC in every room, free laundry, microwaves and fridges in each room, etc.). The accommodations are sweet! Housing has great value. Living on campus adds so much to my college experience.
