After transfering to Ramapo after attending communtiy
college, I have decided to transfer out of this hell
hole. Come with me on this magical journey of
why not to attend Ramapo College of New Jersy.
If you loved High School, this is
the school for you, but if you hated High School,
do not, i repeat do not come here. This
school is one big clique. If you do not
fit in, forget it. You are a social outcast.
There is no social life here.
On tour, they say that Ramapo is not a
suit case college, what a load of crap. No
one stays here on weekends. It looks like a
demilitrized zone here. Most students go home because there
are no people here. Ramapo also says that is
a wet campus, but if you are caught with an
alcohol on campus, you will be charged by the Mahwah
police. Nice. Since there are no one here
on the weekends, that means no parties. Welcome to
the no fun college. As they say here, “What
are you doing, this is a college, your not allowed
to have fun"
If your television
or radio is a little too loud in your dorm,
you will have to go to judicial affairs to settle
a claim for a noise violation.
Since this is a libral arts college, Ramapo decides to
spend all there money on resident halls and not on
educational buildings or upgrading old equipment. Once again the
tour is full of lies. The school consists of
one large building and you have all your classes in
the one building. If you are a communications major,
and you want to get involved with the radio station,
you are dealing with equipment that was new back in
the 80's. Along with the equipment in the theater.
Just because the theater is in a new building
does not mean it is good. The theater still
uses lights that have asbestos. Nice.
Since the college is expanding so much Ramapo has
been know to screw students out of class that are
manditory to take especially communication courses. Too many students
and not enough classes to take.
The work load here is outragious. Talking to friends
from big universitys have no where the amount of work
that you get here. It is a huge work
school. All work, no play. It stinks.
The only thing that sucks everyone
in into this school is the dorms. They are
huge. If you are stuck with a stinky roomate,
you are screwed since there is no where to go.
If you do not have a
car, don't come here. The nearist town is a
5 minute drive, so good luck with that.
My advice to anyone looking at
Ramapo College of New Jersey, look elsewhere. Take it
from me. I am here a semester, and i
am already leaving. Thanks Ramapo
