5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I attended a summer program which allowed me to take 8 credits worth of classes and it was truly great. I learned more in the six weeks about life than I did in eighteen years.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So many different courses to choose from with professors that care about your education. The class sizes are small and allows professors to get to know you and easier to have questions. Professors are very available for office hours.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am a social work major and for my major there are 680 of required fieldwork. I would be interning at a lot of places and social networking a lot making it more likely to find a job after I graduate.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Rape and sexual assault is a problem on every campus and should be an ongoing issue to be assessed and Ramapo is no different. After an alleged rape that was reported Ramapo had hired and outside person to evaluate our policies and suggest changes.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Ramapo College has the best housing in New Jersey. As a freshman I shared a room with two roomates, had a fridge/freezer, microwave, and a personal bathroom; and that was just as a freshman!

2 College Junior

Greek Life: It is a predatory culture which encourages getting girls wasted so guys could sleep with them. I feel that greek like is very superficial.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have no football team so I feel like that at other schools that is what drives a big sports following. People do not really go out to sports events. The people on their own teams have their own culture and its what makes them enjoy their sport that they bring back and share with everyone else to participate in what they would feel that they would enjoy.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Ramapo is great at what it does. It is a small school so all of our professors take the time to know your name and genuinely care about your education. The campus is very connected and they have the best dorms in New Jersey.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: First semester was an adjustment period for me and I just feel like the first semester helped me prepare myself better for the next one. I started off sluggish first semester and ended the first semester with 2.0 and finished the year with a 2.8.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't really got involved around campus yet so I wouldn't be able to tell you anything about it yet.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's a safe environment to me because no one really has any problems with anyone everyone is friendly.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: We have the best dorms in the state and is high ranked in the country so that explained itself.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not really into that kind of stuff at my school so I couldn't tell you anything about it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think its the best since we are a D3 school and we have a D1 basketball facility.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've learned a lot so far my freshman year it has helped me grow as a man and help me understand my surroundings better.

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life can change an individaul for the better

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Ramapos fields, courts, and gyms are great for anyone

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ramapo is what you make of it

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.

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.
