    It's terrible. As a freshman we all make the mistake of getting the unlimited plan. It only come's with $50 to spend elsewhere, and by elsewhere I mean the Paycaf. So, once you run out of that $50 you have loaded onto your card you're basically screwed. You now have to eat at either Birch or the Pavillion all the time. The food makes my stomach so upset. I'm not the only ones, my suitemates also. After we go eat there we are literally fighting over who get's to use the bathroom first. I wish I was exaggerating.

    Ramapo's food service provider, Sodexo, creates many interesting menu options for its all-you-care-to-eat Birch Tree Inn and Pavilion restaurants. Past dishes on the menu have included Brazilian beef stew with Portuguese sausage, Caribbean-style jerk chicken thighs, and Greek gyros at the flat-top Mongolian Grill. Late-night service features a limited menu but could include some healthier options, including a wider variety of fresh fruit and vegetables aside from the salad bar.

    Food and Dining is great, with a buffet style cafeteria that is open all seven days of the week serving breakfast from 7-10am; lunch from 11am-2pm, dinner from 4:30-7:00pm, and late night service from 9:00pm-1:00am. There is also convience stores open weekdays from 8:00am-11:00pm.

    The dining halls that are available to students are Pavilion (located next to Bischoff and Mackin) or Birch Tree Inn (located next to Pine). The Birch Tree Inn has slightly more of a selection of food, and is larger than Pine. The food is edible but definitely does not compare to a mother's cooking! Late night dining is available until 1 a.m. which is great for late night eaters at both Pavilion and Birch Tree Inn.

    I was a fan of dining services, due to their variety and buffet style, but it is subjective at best. There is no definitive answer. I've interacted with students who share similar feeling as well as those who believe they don't provide enough variety.

    I don't really eat much here, but their food is pretty cheap and pretty good.

    They are ridiculed daily... Didn't even know we had any until Greek Week Well, Ramapo's version of Greek Week.. It's not really a week. It's more like a few hours of the greeks introducing themselves. Waste of your time especially if you're a freshman. You can't rush until the Spring anyway. By that time, you'll have realized what a terrible school you're enrolled in and you'll get out.

    The campus's many Greek organizations not only include social fraternities and sororities, but many professional fraternities as well. Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity was introduced at Ramapo in 2012-13 and has quickly become a favorite among those who want a co-ed Greek experience at Ramapo. For those who stick to social Greek life, the many fraternities and sororities have something for every student to enjoy.

    There are 2 types of greek life. Social and Professional. Social greek life is like any other college campus, maybe not as many people are in greek life, but there are still good times, and events run by them. Professional greek life are for those who are academically or interest inclined. There is a service fraternity on campus if you like to do community service.

    Most students are involved in Greek Life. There is an organization for everyone. Greek Life is very present on campus and they hold many events for the students to attend. Hazing is forbidden and the school is very strict about this rule.

    The Greek life is active, but not overwhelming. The frats have parties off campus and have parties. It is easy to either attend and get involved, and if you don't it isn't a big deal.
