The only good about Ramapo College that IQuite BrightBiology
The only good about Ramapo College that I have to share is the people I have met and the profs that I really enjoyed. Other than that, it is hell on earth.

They changed all policies regarding parties/social scene and now everyone lives in fear of getting insane fines and punishment. In the time span of one semester the semester has gone from "I love it" to a depressed student body that complains all of the time. I dont even go out to get drunk and party but I still miss knowing there was somewhat of a social scene here if I wanted to go out and meet new people.Ramapo is prison do not come here. I hate so much that I am trapped here.

Not really sure what the other reviewers areQuite BrightNursing
Not really sure what the other reviewers are talking about. This is my 3rd year here, and I absolutely love it here. I'm trying to my bachelor of science degree in nursing and the teachers here are very helpful and care about their students' well-beings. Many of the negative reviews say that the teachers don't challenge their students, but I feel that it's the complete opposite. I guess it might be different for other majors.

If you do plan on going to Ramapo for nursing, be prepared to study a lot. Also, the clinicals are really long, but it's worth it in the long run since you get a lot of experience. Overall the campus is very beautiful and it has a wonderful view of the mountains. Be prepared for a lot of snow during the winter though! The food is decent, not as bad as other universities. Only thing I would say could be a negative is that it isn't a party school by any means. People do leave during the weekends making it a suitcase school but that doesn't mean there isn't anything to do. Ramapo has tons of clubs to keep yourself busy.
