    Ramapo definitely has it's positives and negatives. Negatives include how boring this school is on the weekends. Most students go home, we do not have a football team, and there is little student engagement. It is hard being far away from home because most students live in the area and do not have to bear how dreadful it is. Therefore, if you're not involved on campus and a close-knit group of friends, you're going to have a rough time here. Another negative is that I personally think we have many adjuncts. There is nothing wrong with adjunct professors as I have had some great ones, but adjuncts normally do not have the same pride and care in their work as full-time professors. It is frustrating when you know more about the school and how it runs than your teacher. That being said, let's end Ramapo on some positives. The campus is absolutely gorgeous and extremely easy to get around. When the weather is bad, you have the option of walking through the academic buildings through the second floor because they are all connected. The dorms are the best in the state; you will not find dorms that upperclassmen have at other colleges that Ramapo students have early on. I also thought Ramapo was extremely easy to transition to from high school. I never felt anxious about fitting in. Also, the area is great and extremely secure, which I cannot say about other colleges in New Jersey. You have the option of having your car freshman year if you can get a waiver. Overall, my experience at Ramapo was good, but I made it that way. Any student who comes here needs to put that effort in; it's fairly new and still in the works.

    I enjoy being at Ramapo. You meet people from all over. Ramapo is like one big family. If you need help, they are not hesitant to give it to you. Also there are a million and one things to do. Everything from Zumba to going to NY to making sushi. There is always something to do so you really can't get bored. Ramapo is a great place to meet new friends and have a lot of fun.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Ramapo is close enough to my home where I can come home when I need to, but far enough away where I can live on campus.

    I love being at Ramapo. It gives me the opportunity to dorm, while still being able to go home on the weekends. If you're into nature, the Ramapo Reservation is the place for you. If you're not (like me), you can still enjoy yourself by taking a bus or train into the city (as in NYC), or to one of the many malls nearby. The people on campus are generally very pleasant, especially the employees working in the dining halls. It's really not difficult at all to make friends.
