About Ramapo College of New Jersey

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as fifth in the Best Regional Public Universities North category, Ramapo College of New Jersey is sometimes viewed as a private college. This is, in part, due to its unique interdisciplinary academic structure, its size of approximately 6,000 students and its pastoral setting in the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains on the New Jersey/New York border.

Ramapo College offers a Dual Enrollment Program with Seton Hall University’s School of Law for prospective freshmen students wishing to pursue their Juris Doctorate (J.D.) and practice law after finishing their undergraduate coursework.

Campus information

A campus-wide building program during recent years has resulted in the completion of the Anisfield School of Business academic facility; the Bill Bradley Sports and Recreation Center; the Overlook and Laurel residence halls and the Village apartment complex. Construction projects completed in May 2015 include the Adler Center for Nursing Excellence and the renovation of the G-Wing building, with expanded classroom, research and simulation laboratory space, and a 36,000 square foot facility connected by an overhead walkway to the College’s science/social science building. The campus also boasts the Sharp Sustainability Education Center, the Salameno Spiritual Center and the Angelica and Russ Berrie Center for Performing and Visual Arts.

Ramapo College is listed in the February 2016 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine as among the “100 Best Values in Public Colleges.” Ramapo also is recognized in the “Best Bang for the Buck Colleges in the Northeast” category of the 2015 Washington Monthly College Guide and Rankings. The 2015 Niche Rankings for Best Dorms in New Jersey gives Ramapo a high ranking for its campus housing.
