MAHWAH, NJ — Named to Conde Nast’s Traveler’s 50 Most Beautiful College Campuses in America, Ramapo College of New Jersey was featured in an episode of “The College Tour,” an Amazon Prime series spotlighting colleges and universities across the nation. An exclusive on-campus screening with the student cast in attendance will be held on Oct. 13.

Just a bus ride away from New York City is the liberal arts school, where
“opportunity abounds,” show host Alex Boylan said at the start of the episode.

“Small class sizes and engaged faculty members offer hands-on learning and individual student attention,” Boylan added. “Students aren’t just given a voice; they are encouraged to raise their own.”

Over the half-hour episode, viewers will meet Ramapo students who embody their mascot — the Roadrunner — in that they are “always on the move,” Boylan said.

Each episode of the show tells the story of a college through the lens of its students, according to the show’s website. During Ramapo’s free screening event, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Sharp Theater, clips of the episode will be premiered, college spokesperson Angela Daidone said.

“It is no wonder why Ramapo is a nationally top-ranked public college,” Boylan said in the episode’s intro, referring to its four-year graduation rates that exceed national averages and “innovative academics.”
