Donation is earmarked for veteran students services
MAHWAH, N.J. – Ramapo College of New Jersey recently received a generous gift from Enterprise Holdings to benefit the College’s Student Veterans. President Peter P. Mercer accepted the check, appropriately presented in the recently opened Transfer Student & Veterans Lounge on campus.
“We take great pleasure in working with Enterprise in support of our student veterans,” said President Mercer. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with them.”
Enterprise is among the many area companies that have recruited students for internships, as well as part- and/or full-time positions. Ramapo College has the second most veteran students among state colleges or universities that are employed with the company in the Northern New Jersey region.
“Enterprise has a strong military heritage and it is an amazing opportunity for us to support the veteran students,” said Jennifer Santiago, Talent Acquisition Manager for Enterprise, Wayne office. “We recognize their leadership skills and work ethic and value what these men and women bring to the table.”
Ramapo College opened its Transfer Student & Veterans Lounge in November 2016. The space is designed to be a hub of resources and a gathering place for transfer and veteran students. Ramapo College has been designated a Military Friendly School for four straight years and is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of “America’s Best Colleges.”
Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top in the Best Regional Public Universities North category, Ramapo College of New Jersey is sometimes viewed as a private college.

Established in 1969, Ramapo College offers bachelor's degrees in the arts, business, humanities, social sciences and the sciences, as well as in professional studies, which include nursing and social work. In addition, Ramapo College offers courses leading to teacher certification at the elementary and secondary levels.
