About This CampusEstablished in 1969, New Jersey's public liberal arts college continues to be one of the champions of a liberal arts education in the United States today providing students with over 60 undergraduate major and concentration options. Under their new banner of "Pushing Boundaries," Ramapo College offers students a wide variety of experiential and cooperative educational opportunities, providing students with an educational experience that goes well beyond the classroom. As a member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC), Ramapo College offers its students unique opportunities such as presenting research at academic conferences and a greater exchange of ideas with other students and faculty at other liberal arts colleges.
Location InformationSet on 300 wooded acres at the foothills of Bergen County's Ramapo Mountains in northern New Jersey, the Ramapo College campus boasts a magnificent setting amid towering trees and broad stretches of lawn. Although the College is situated in an estate-style setting, it is located in a large metropolitan region, within a few miles of ski slopes, a short drive from the Jersey shore, close to numerous shopping malls, and only 25 miles from New York City.
Helpful InformationUnless you have a car, commuting to Ramapo College will be extremely difficult as we do not have access to mainstream public transportation.
