Admitted Students Day welcomes class of 2027

The Office of Admissions hosted its annual Admitted Students Day on Sunday alongside the Center for Student Involvement. This event invites all accepted students to explore Ramapo’s campus, attend information sessions on their majors and talk to faculty and staff from different departments.

According to the Fall 2022 Enrollment Report, Ramapo admitted 850 new first-time students at the start of the academic year. 96% of those students were first-time freshmen. The Office of Admissions said they accepted about 60% of applicants this year for the incoming Class of 2027.

The event started in the Bradley Center with presentations by Anthony Dovi, the Director of Admissions, Janea Tozer-Murphy, a senior at Ramapo, and President Cindy Jebb. Families were given insights into how valuable education at Ramapo College is after it was named the No.1 Public College in New Jersey by College Choice.

After that, the prospective students and families were split by schools and attended an information session. In this session, they were able to meet and speak with their dean as well as faculty and students. Once the sessions were over, the students and their families were able to explore on their own by taking tours or eating delicious Cuban food and Dutch pancakes. Different departments, like the Honors Program and Athletics, were present to speak with interested students.

The Office of Admissions said they accepted about 60% of applicants this year for the incoming Class of 2027.

Among them were two high school seniors, Michael Schirrmacher and Nick Cammarano, who will be joining the Class of 2027. Schirrmacher is from Lodi, NJ and attends Lodi High School. He plans to major in accounting as a part of the 4 + 1 Masters program. What most attracted Schirrmacher to Ramapo is its beautiful campus, as well as the 4 + 1 accounting program.

Cammarano, also from Lodi, NJ, is a student at Bergen County Technical School and will be entering as an Undecided major. Cammarano was inspired to apply by a family friend who also attended Ramapo. He loves the campus as well as the dorms. Ramapo has been ranked No.1 in dorms in the state of New Jersey for several years.

The students and families enjoyed a sunny morning at Ramapo with the hope that they will be walking across the campus again in August for move-in and the Arching Ceremony.
