Welcome to The Friends of Ramapo Website

Mission

The Friends of Ramapo is an organization founded to expand communications and foster greater understanding between Ramapo College and neighboring communities.

Through the Friends of Ramapo, the College pushes its boundaries beyond the borders of its campus. In this way, neighbors are introduced to Ramapo College’s missions, focused on four pillars of education:  international, intercultural, interdisciplinary and experiential.

The Friends have enjoyed a surge in membership.  There are more than 240 neighbors who have a variety of interests participating in Ramapo College’s cultural and educational programs, auditing classes and using the fitness facilities.
