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.

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.
