"Ramapo is a great college for people who like to be in small scale classrooms. The size of the programs and class allow for each student to be acknowledged and participate in class room discussions in such an insightful way. Professors are able to know who you are and help you understand concepts on a one on one basis."

"I was a student in Ramapo Colle's EOF program which tremendously helped defrey the costs during my first two years of study. Throughout my time at Ramapo I was involved and felt part of a larger family. I became a resident assistant my sophomore year of college and was involved as a peer educator, peer mentor and club president. Ramapo's career department help me land my first internship in accounting which later led to a full time job in my field after graduation. I will be forever grateful for my experience at RCNJ!"

"I chose Ramapo College initially because at the time in 2010, it was building up its new Bioinformatics program. I was studying Bioinformatics even in High School for 2 years, and I had already known it was what I wanted to do with my life, even then. At the Open House, I could tell that it was a fantastic program, and at the time, very rare. It was one of the few schools in America offering the program to undergraduates, and it was the only public NJ school offering it at the time. Ramapo College is gorgeous, well priced, and it was right for me with a fantastic Bioinformatics program. It always felt like a home to me, and I always felt safe. I had so much opportunities there, including 2 years of original, independent scientific research, a summer internship with Cornell University (a connection gained through the head professor of the Bioinformatics program), and excellent classes and electives that gave me exactly the skills I would need in the workforce after graduating. I couldn't recommend RCNJ more for people like me who love the sciences and want to make a strong career out of it. I have seen even greater improvements and awards received for the science programs since I've graduated, so it would be an even better experience than ever! And about lifestyle and culture at RCNJ? Because of the small campus and community, it always felt like home. And I would find excitement in the nature surrounding the area and the friendships I gained."

"Ramapo College of New Jersey has a beautiful campus with a quality education. The teachers care, and they are very diverse and well educated. There are a wide variety of programs available for students to get involved, and they offer quite a bit of scholarship money to out of state students. I love PO! If you go here, you will not regret it."

"Ramapo College of New Jersey is a quiet college nestled in northern New Jersey that may seem to be not worth a look-see at first. Ramapo has been striving to improve its curriculum, support its sports teams, and create a passionate community on campus in order to become more well-known. During my time at Ramapo, I witnessed the TAS (science building) building receive a facelift as updated technologies and tools were introduced and installed into the facility. The faculty who oversees the new equipment are well-versed in their field of study. To top it off, your major dictates your academic advisor, and I was lucky enough to have my professor and research mentor be mine. This created a relationship both personal and professional, which attributed my success when it came to applying to graduate programs and networking with colleagues. Another thing that is attractive about Ramapo College is the low tuition rate, which makes the education you receive worth the price you need to pay. The location in Mahwah is also fantastic. On-campus housing in a safe suburban/rural area makes the living process stress-free. The local reservation and the open campus even allows some activities to do in your free time. Ramapo College of New Jersey is a jem of a school that definitely deserves more attention and should be kept on your radar as you consider where you want to start your college career."

"Ramapo is a very unique school that provides a very high quality liberal arts education. Although I do not enjoy the winter season and hoped to attend college away from the east coast, I have no regrets about my choice to attend Ramapo College of NJ!"

"Ramapo College of New Jersey has a great location. It was about 35 minutes away from home. Each class is 4 credits instead of 3 credits so you are able to take three classes a semester and still be considered a full time student. I found that helpful because I balanced a part time job with being a full time student. As a commuter student, parking was a nightmare and you had to give yourself an extra 10-15 minutes to find a spot and walk up to class. Many of the clubs on campus met late at night and I couldn't attend because I had work or had classes earlier in the day. I didn't make many friends when commuting to Ramapo. There were definitely some good teachers that made classes interesting and fun to attend."

"The overall Campus was neat and well kept. Student activities where abundant and variety of on and off campus curriculums are were announced and organized thoughtfully. The parking is very large, but seem difficult at times especially when programs are first initiated at the beginning."
