The quality and value of a Ramapo College education is consistently acknowledged through numerous rankings and awards including College Choice, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine, U.S. News & World Report, Money magazine, the Princeton Review, CollegesofDistinction.com, and the Guide to Military Friendly Schools.

The 300-acre campus combines rural beauty with proximity to major suburban and urban areas and businesses. This enables students to participate in nearby internships and co-ops. 

Ramapo College is continuously improving the campus.

It is also home to the newly-opened (October 2018) NextGen Dunkin’ restaurant. Currently, the George T.
