Attending Ramapo College of NJ has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far. Ramapo has so much to offer and has a lot of room for academic and personal development. I truly enjoyed all the moments I spent here and the memories I created along the way with my professors and friends. Ramapo is simply a place to be.
