Mahwah, New Jersey
Ramapo College, in New Jersey, is a small liberal arts college with a significant on-campus residential offering. The College was built in the 1960’s on a former private estate at the base of the Catskills Mountains. A modern academic building was created that frames a quadrangle around the historic mansion and highlights the natural setting and remarkable views to the Catskills. With a focus on small class sizes, the College provides an exceptional quality of experience and education.
Urban Strategies is currently creating a campus master plan for the College that will coordinate renewal of the academic building with facility needs, improve way-finding and circulation on campus, and identify new campus landscapes as a focus for place-making and development. Key initiatives include the creation of a new Campus Center, a new Welcome Center and the expansion of the Library to include a Learning Commons.
