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 Experience: It's an alright school. The theatre department is nice, but I feel that they're changing it too rapidly. The theatre faculty is great. The food here is terrible, but it is a SUNY so what do you expect? Everyone here is nice, but very cliquey, so it's a bit difficult to make friends. The town is great though and has amazing restaurants.

Greek Life: While fraternities are present in New Paltz, they are not very important. The only people who really join are the partying type of people, which there are not many of

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: In New Paltz, athletics are not heavily emphasized, due to the absence of a football or baseball time. I would consider the school as being more welcoming to artsy and musical students rather than athletes.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: While the small town of New Paltz is beautiful, there is not much to do, especially at night. And although the community (students and people in town alike) may come off as friendly in advertisements, the students in the university are cruel and judgmental once you meet them for yourself. My whole freshman year was one of the worst experiences of my life, and has influenced me to transfer out of there. While I love the professors, the student body is awful if you are an introverted person who is considered different from others. I would recommend going there for the academics. But if you're shy like me, it's best you just commute and not deal with people there

3 College Junior

Athletics: I feel that sports is not really important compared to other schools

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would choose my school again because I am receiving a great education at a lower tuition compared to other schools and it's close enough to my home.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I usually feel safe but I know there are systems in place such as the blue light or escort system if I feel in danger.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy the school and most of my classes. The professors are usually very clear on how to succeed in their classes and don't expect more then what in manageable. The campus is nice and the people are usually very friendly.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are opportunities but students have to take the initiative to take advantage of them. Emails are sent with internship and job options and the career resource center can help with resumes and mock interviews.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Esopus, Lenape, and Ridgeview are nicer with A/C but a slightly farther walk to classes( about 10-15 minutes)

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I've never been to any sporting events on campus and haven't heard of many students that go to watch them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a nice area with a cute downtown and scenic mountain views. The classes and school in general is a nice size where you can recognize faces walking through campus but you don't know everyone.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There's barely any campus crime except for the usual drug bust.

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.
