Ramapo Success Story

“For the past 18-plus years, Ramapo has been a part of my family and a place I call home. When I attended Ramapo as an undergrad, the professors did nothing short of prepping me for life after college. When I was lucky enough to be hired by my alma mater, the faculty and staff embraced me and welcomed me with open arms. I’m not sure where I would be today if it were not for Ramapo College. I earned my degree here, was hired as part of an amazing community, met my husband here, and now have a daughter who is growing up knowing all the ins and outs about the campus and the Roadrunners. I am truly blessed to have had the opportunity to take the path I have driven since entering college. I would not want it any other way and I cannot thank Ramapo, the faculty and staff, the administration, and most importantly the students for making my journey one that I will never forget.” – Rachel L.
