The Italian Club
An Italian student organization, the Italian Club was created 16 years ago as a “Circolo Italiano.” The Club promotes Italian culture among students, faculty, staff, and the Italian American community. It is supported financially by Ramapo College and The Columbians of New Jersey.
The Club is very active on campus. It sponsors lectures in art, architecture, poetry literature, cooking lessons, bocce games, concerts, films, plays, art exhibits, and trips to the opera, among other activities.

The Organization for Latino Unity
The Organization for Latino Unity (OLU) is a recognized club on Ramapo College’s campus. The mission of OLU, as stated in its constitution, is as follows:
- To develop cultural, educational, social and recreational activities that would contribute to the advancements of the club member and the college community.
- To promote the understanding of the Hispanic culture both at the college and the local community.
- To contribute to establish closer relationships with other Hispanic organizations on campus and the state of New Jersey.
- To contribute to the unification of persons of Hispanic origin regardless of nationality.
OLU welcomes members of all backgrounds and races, likes and dislikes, religious orientation, and moral concerns in the club. Our focus is to provide a forum for both Latino and non-Latino students to come together, interact, learn about each other, and help in the advancement of the Latino community on and off campus. We achieve these goals through different cultural, social, and educational programs, as well as through public mediums such as a monthly newsletter.
