Overall Experience: Ramapo College honestly has its positives and negatives. A positive is the overall scenery of the campus and the amazing dorms. Also class sizes are small which gives you that one on one attention with professor and student. This improves the academic experience for students. Some negatives are because of its location it can be quite boring . Due to the lack of transportation in Mahwah, if you don"t have a car your are limited to where you can go. Overall I really enjoy being at Ramapo and I am grateful for my experience here.

Health & Safety: During the first few days in our Freshman year, they had students go to mandatory meetings regarding sexual abuse, alcohol and safety issues.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't have any affiliation with Greek Life. I know a few friends that are rushing, but I have no interest in joining.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Since it's a small school sports aren't that huge here. Most college students expect to go to football games, but Ramapo doesn't have a football team. Soccer is the big fall sport, but at every game I went to there was only a small crowd.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like that Ramapo is small enough that I can get more one on one time with my teachers. It can be quiet on the weekends, but that's fine since I usually study. Once you get to know some people on campus, you start to find more and more to do every day.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have always felt completely safe and protected on my campus.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The quality of professors is so low, it is almost non-existent. I have not found any of them to be professional in their fields whatsoever.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is nice with good size rooms and personal bathrooms. The social atmosphere is awful as everyone goes home due to the overwhelming strict public safety rules.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As of this point in my schooling I am quite disappointed. I have found most of my professors to not be qualified for their work. I have taken the time to seek help from tutors, who were also not helpful. The school does not host many activities on the weekends pushing even more students to go home, making the campus completely boring.

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.
