Greek Life: Greek life is average on campus. It's there if you want to get involved, but you won't miss out if you don't participate.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Sports are not a huge part of campus life, but you can definitely get into them if that's your thing. We have an average sports presence.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love Ramapo. I wanted to attend NYU but couldn't afford it. That being said, I've found that Ramapo has offered me a wonderful education that has prepared me for my future career. It's a small school, which wound up suiting me perfectly. It's also close to NYC so you have access to all of the resources of the city, as well.

Diversity: Ramapo has a pretty diverse campus. The students are always open to people that are considered the minority, and that doesn't limit the amount of activities you can get involved in.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are a pretty big part of Ramapo. Despite being a D3 school, the games themselves are still enjoyable to watch. All of the facilities are state of the art and have reasonable operating hours

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe at Ramapo. Students leave their backpacks/cell phones/etc. sitting on tables while they are off doing something else, unafraid of their belongings being stolen. I have had my phone and wallet brought to Lost and Found on two separate occasions. Public safety is always willing to help if you feel unsafe.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Academics might be the best part about Ramapo. Class sizes are perfect, small enough that you are getting the attention that you need. Professors are outstanding (especially within the Salmeno School of Humanities and Global Studies). They are experts in their field, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the subjects they teach and about teaching. Would have been 5 stars if there was more variety in the classes offered.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Career Center is very helpful and usually successful in helping you find an internship.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Ramapo has some of the best housing I've seen. Very spacious, a relaxed guest policy, and kind RAs.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek organizations hold excellent fundraisers and events throughout the semester. Ramapo does not offer Greek housing.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Fan support for athletic events are so-so. School spirit is average as sports don't play to large a role on campus. On-campus athletic facilities are great.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Being at Ramapo these four years has been a pleasure. My professors, especially, are what has made my experience at Ramapo so great. They are experts in their fields and passionate about teaching their students. On-campus housing is some of the best I've seen. Ramapo has a diverse array of clubs and organizations and offers some type of activity students can participate in almost every night. I would also like to highlight Ramapo's Study Abroad Office as being one of best I've ever encountered. They are passionate, helpful and devoted to students' success.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Ramapo and the surrounding town of Mahwah are very safe. Public Safety on campus is available 24/7 every day of the year.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ramapo has a great quality of education. The professors are all very knowledgable and approachable. The faculty is so willing to help students who are struggling. The academic course load is very manageable if you manage your time and use the resources available to students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know a lot of people who've graduated with jobs from Ramapo. Career placement is very good here. I have great confidence that I will graduate with a good job with good pay coming straight out of college.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: 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.

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.
