“I appreciated Ramapo’s emphasis on teaching, extracurricular involvement and mentorship. Each and every one of my professors prioritized student education. My experiences at Ramapo allowed me to participate in independent neuroscience research, multiple pre-medical and psychology internships, on-campus disabilities tutoring, community-wide volunteering, and several on-campus organizations. Being apart of various extracurricular activities, I developed relationships with my mentors that will remain important to me throughout my medical career.” – Kevin Manz ’13 graduated with B.A. in Psychology.
