What Students Are Saying

3.45 Average Rating
Ramapo College is a great Liberal Arts school. The classes are pretty small compared to most schools and the professors care about your learning and also know you by name, not a number. Also, Ramapo probably has the best food out of all the NJ colleges.
Claude from Teaneck, NJ

There are great opportunities for undergraduates to participate in research.
Many activities and ways to get involved.
