    Ramapo has consistently been rated as one of the top 100 most affordable schools in the country. I agree, and the tuition goes to maintaining such a beautiful campus. It really shows, especially with the beautiful new buildings being constructed/renovated, and the clean and fresh dining services.

    You're getting an education for a decent price, so I'd say if you can put up with all of this then fine. That would make it worth it. Personally, I can't so for me it's not worth it.

    Ramapo is a great value among colleges not only in New Jersey, but in the Northeastern United States as well. Laundry in the on-campus residence halls is free, which means that no quarters are necessary. Free events on campus include After Dark parties held at night that do not feature alcohol, but do include catering from places such as Moe's Southwest Grill, CARS Late Night Delivery in Ramsey, and Sonny & Tony's Pizzeria.

    The advising and counseling offices, along with career services and the student life offices epitomize bang for your buck! I made my decision to enroll at Ramapo College solely based on your orientation program which truly allowed students to educate themselves and engage with various member of their college community.

    It's not really expensive, and it's a pretty good place to be, all in all. Just not to my personal tastes.
