The Ramapo Residence Life program is based on a philosophy that residence hall living provides opportunities for students to gain a variety of experiences that supplement and complement formal classroom learning. We make every effort to promote academic achievement through our programs, to encourage students to develop interdependence, maturity, as well as responsible decision-making and life skills. The key to having a great experience is to get involved in your community.
