4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on campus

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived in Bevier Hall last semester and it is getting very old and outdated. It is poor quality compared to some of the other housing options. But I moved off campus for next year.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I dont really know much about the Greek Life at New Paltz. Although there are a fair number of Fraternitys and Sororities.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics at New Paltz are quite prominent at the school, our volleyball team recently won the national championship. The facilities are very nice as I am a personal trainer at the Athletic Center.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Professors are very helpful and knowledgeable, although they can be very biased at times.

5 College Student

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I am on the softball team and I made many new friends. I learned a lot from my teachers and they really helped me out a lot.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There's only two 18+ clubs in town. They're segregated by the types of people who go there. Your best bet is to hit up a club if it's an after party for an event on campus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The best parties are off-campus house parties. Depending on which hall you live in you can have a great night if you pregame in your room when the RAs aren't too strict about quiet hours.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are mostly supportive. They're not pushovers but they want to see you do well.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: There's 80% white people on campus. 70% women. It's hard to find people to relate to because of this.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I've been offered cocaine before. I heard of freshman popping pills. Drinking is common and it's common for students to have fake IDs.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: i don't care about geeks

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school tries to stop drug/alcohol use in dorms to save their own asses, not for the students. Students still receive gigantic punishments for minor offenses

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had several good experiences, although I still can't see myself anywhere else, I wish the math department didn't completely suck, and some of the music professors shouldn't be allowed to teach anyone anything

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have applied year afterror year for work study jobs and never even gotten a single reply

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is close to my classes, but my hall is unruly and always smells of Marijuana or vomit and the water fountain is constantly clogged because people dump food in it

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are few Greek organizations and all of them are very serious about their reputation and I would never join a group because they have strange practices that would offend me

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I use the gym almost daily and the gym is never as clean as I would like, people don't clean up after they use machines

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am not happy with the student body, most of the student body are over entitled people who still act like children and it is very hard to find people with the same mindset as me

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Lenape hall which is nice because there are private bathrooms, but other dorms in the Hasbrouck quad have asbestos which is awful. Some are being renovated though which is good.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students love going to school at New Paltz. They love the professors, their fellow students, the town and local atmosphere, and the close proximity to Hudson Valley nature. SUNY New Paltz isn't so big that students are in huge classes where they feel like numbers, and it's not so small that kids get stir crazy or catty.

One of the coolest things about New Paltz is the diversity. There are tons of different kinds of people from really different backgrounds—whites, blacks, Asians, Hispanics, hipsters from the city, bros from Long Island, stoners, workaholics—everyone lives and interacts harmoniously. You can basically do whatever you want, whenever you want, as long as you stay on top of your schoolwork. If you want to learn and contribute to a cultural and educational hub of the Hudson Valley, you will love New Paltz.
