I am currently enrolled in Ramapo College of New Jersey. As a commuter, my main focus is to just be on campus for class. I was afraid that because I commute, I would not be able to participate in clubs or attend career fairs. The college offers both activities at different dates and times- which makes it convienent to participate in the college's affairs! As for academics, the college is perfect. It is smaller; therefore, professors are tailored to the students and their needs. They are easy to reach and there is a very personal experience. I would recommend Ramapo for its academics. The school provides great resources and knowlegable professors.
Review Ramapo College of New Jersey
Attending Ramapo College of NJ was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The campus and beautiful with some of the best student housing and apartments in the state. You're education is top of line. There's only about 20 students enrolled in class, so you get the attention you need from your professors. Would have wanted to go anywhere else!
Small class sizes, a lot of individual attention. You're not just a name on a piece of paper. Professors know everyone personally and have a tendency to reach out if a student is falling behind/not attending class. They have office hours every week, and are very willing to make appointments. Great science program for a liberal arts school. Small campus but beautiful. Different clubs and organizations co-sponsor events. Living on campus can get a little boring on weekends because it's not a "college town", but there are many ways to get involved and those who complain the most usually aren't involved in any extracurricular activities. Most dorms are fairly new or being renovated. No communial bathrooms, a lot of different living set-ups. The science building was redone last year and is amazing, although more modern equipment would be nice. Overall, a great school. I had a fantastic experience, better than I would've had at a larger school.
