Ramapo College of New Jersey

Mahwah, NJwww.ramapo.edu
Ramapo College is relatively young, having been established in 1969, but it's already made a name for itself. A liberal arts college that offers more than 500 courses to its roughly 6,000 students, Ramapo has particularly popular business, psychology and journalism programs. About half of Ramapo students are commuters, and as a result, campus tends to be pretty quiet on the weekends. For those people looking to stay busy on campus, there are more than 100 student groups -- including a Magic: the Gathering organization and a science fiction and comic book club -- as well as an active Greek system. Notable alumni include Grace Helbig, a popular YouTube creator. The campus is in a wealthy corner of New Jersey, about an hour's drive from New York City and about 20 minutes from the Ramapo Mountains, which contain part of the Appalachian Trail.
