2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not a big part of New Paltz

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's great for students who are on sports teams and also great for students who just want to stay in shape.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SUNY New Paltz is a very welcoming campus that offers a great variety of majors and courses. I found my niche in Marketing and Media Management and I am excited for class every day.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some rooms are smaller than other rooms. I feel like the suite style buildings should have more than one shower. The closets should be a little bigger.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is really big in the school. A lot of people are interested in joining sorority or fraternity.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic facilities are always being used.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of clubs and majors that you can chose from. Everyone is helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Overall the dorm rooms aren't terrible but they certainly aren't spacious either. Maintenance can take forever to come and fix an issue, hallways in suite buildings are left dirty and bathrooms in suite buildings are only cleaned once a month!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't huge at New Paltz and you don't have to be a part of it to take advantage of the parties and other events that they host. I haven't rushed but I have friends who are members of Greek life and have taken part in some rough hazing but they say it's worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Facilities are up to date for the most part and well maintained. Group exercise classes are offered in abundance and enjoyable.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SUNY New Paltz is overall a wonderful school with great opportunities if you take advantage of them.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: No diversity in political views. One of the most liberal schools

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You get what you pay for in terms of education

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was nervous transferring to a new school, and all the professors were so helpful in making the transition smooth. Courses are fair and interesting. Class sizes are not that big at all, 35 on average.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: SUNY New Paltz is a great place to learn and get a degree from.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I have only been in my building and it is not bad at all. It is a little old but overall it is pretty good.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: From what I hear Greek life is pretty good, but I am not that into it myself.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There is not a huge emphasis on sports at New Paltz.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is a great school for a new transfer to start off at! Great people!

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs are not necessarily a rampant problem in the school

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's almost never any crime around campus, so safety is not a worry here

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Only 3 of the resident buildings have AC, so that doesn't make matters easier. Also, the best dorm buildings are 3/4 of a mile away from classes

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.
