3 College Junior

Campus Food: Overall it is okay. There are no options if you are a freshman you have to have the unlimited Hasbrouck plan. The upperclassmen meal plans, like the 5 meal a week worked well for me.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: They are currently renovating many dorms, showing great improvement.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I wish there would be more free parties instead of having to pay overtime one went out

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There all different types of food and all different prices

3 College Freshman

Administration: It;s pretty average compared to other schools

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wish they would offer more scholarship opportunities

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It all depends on where you want to live

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It all depends where you go.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's fun being near all your friends but I wish they would update or renovate some of the dorm buildings

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are decent foods at locations around campus but there are difficult and unnecessary expensive costs.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I found the dorming life to be a wonderful place to really get closer and understand different people. There are dorms that are more inconvenient due to personal reasons, but overall each dorm has its benefits. The social atmosphere in the dorms are all different due to the usual group of people that dorm there, but overall everyone is very friendly and accepting of each other. The cost of dorming is not too bad, and the selection of rooms is something tricky the first time but afterwards is something that is much easier.

Off-Campus Housing: Way better than living in the dorms but can be expensive

3 College Junior

Party Scene: If you know the right people you'll be alright

1 College Junior

Administration: More concerned about construction than students being able to study and go to class in peace.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: The deadlines are too short and at inconvenient times and the school does not make it easy to find and apply for them. And when you do apply for them your chances of receiving one are very low, they rarely give scholarships.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The SUB has so many options that are reasonable for people who do not have meal plans as well as Backstage Cafe where they are always really friendly.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus because there is not enough room for transfers to live on campus.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I've tried, but never really had any luck

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't tried too many places, but my top 3 are Taco Shack, China House, and Gourmet Pizza (cheese pie $12!)

3 College Junior

Administration: The only complaint I really have is about the lack of the Parking Committee to try and get us more space. We don't have a "Walking Problem" as the Dean likes to say. I would gladly park all the way on Route 32 and walk to Old Library if I didn't have to drag a backpack filled with textbooks & my laptop, an art box full of supplies, and a portfolio that is bigger than I am alllllll the way across campus for 12 HOURS. I'm a commuter and work 2 jobs so I have to cram all my classes into 2 days a week, and have no choice but to carry all my stuff because I don't dorm.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: All the bars are on Main Street, just a short walk from campus. It's the best place to pub crawl because all the bars are right next to/across the street from each other. Not to mention the places for late night food selection ;D

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Stay on top of your FAFSA & any correspondences with any administrators you speak with. They give you the run around, the Financial Aid office sends you to Student Accounts, Student Accounts send you to Records & Registration, Records & Reg sends you to Student Advising. It's a total headache. Not to mention the new rules that TAP put into effect that totally screw you out of money that you were promised and dependent on. FINANCIAL AID IS A JOKE

3 College Junior

Campus Food: They have a variety of places for whatever you're craving, subs, pizza, pasta, burgers, sushi. You can always have something different

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.
