3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I filled out the FASFA forms and received what they gave me and also received some money from the school. College is expensive and obviously it's not easy to come up with the money needed for each semester, therefore the college should be able to give more. The college was able to answer any questions my family and I had in a reasonable amount of time.

Campus Food: The dinning halls aren't the best one's I've seen. When going into school you have to remember that the food on campus will never live up to your favorites. I believe that Pavilion has been food than Birch Tree Inn. I have the sensible 6 and it worked for me since I like the Atrium better than Birch.

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus. It gave me the opportunity to meet new people and experience what it is like to live on my own. The dorms at Ramapo College of New Jersey of one of the nicest freshman dorms I've ever seen. They are relatively new and there is a lot of space. The food at the school isn't the best but nothing will ever compare to my mom's food. I felt like I fit right in at the school. I will never forget my first year at college and all of the amazing people I met. Housing was relatively easy. Not everyone gets to live where they want to, which is a bummer but it's not the end of the world. Ramapo is one of the cheaper state schools in New Jersey, which is a perk as well. The worst dorms to live in are pine and linden, but even those dorms are not as bad as some I have seen. Everyone wants to live in Laurel, The Village or the College Park Apartments because they are so nice. The sophomores dorms, Overlook, is absolutely beautiful.

Scholarships: Discuss your financial options with a financial aid advisor before beginning your freshman year, since they won't provide you with any additional aid for the remaining years that you attend the school.

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.

3 College Freshman

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.
