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.

5 College Sophomore

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

5 College Sophomore

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

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: All athletes on campus show their school spirit. However there is not a big crowd at the games

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not an athlete but the program is consistent

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Ramapo College is a Division III school, as far as athletics are concerned, and as such, the attendance, media coverage, and funding tend to be modest. There is some recruiting, and scholarships are available for athletic students looking to attend Ramapo, although talented walk-on athletes are also considered. Some of the popular teams at Ramapo are men's and women's volleyball, men's and women's soccer, men's basketball, and the dance team. Overall, the facilities that house these sports on campus are well-kept.

Intramural sports are available for those not interested in varsity sports but in fun activities like the very popular ultimate Frisbee. These student-run sports tend to be friendly, and are best played with groups of friends. Much of the sign-up happens in the Bradley Center, the large athletics complex located near the entrance of campus. The Bradley Center also houses a full-sized swimming pool, a rock wall, and a gym fully equipped and open to all students and those with Ramapo IDs. The gym can be crowded during busy times of the day (i.e., in the early evening), but those willing to get up early can have basically the whole gym to themselves. There are several yoga and stress reduction classes available to students, as well, along with dance classes and workout sessions available for credits.
