Overall Experience: There is a great variation of courses at New Paltz. Most professors are very friendly, easy going, passionate about their subject, and make sure their students are succeeding. my favorite thing about this school is the class size because your professor will know who you are, and you get the help you need.

Overall Experience: The career resource center does a lot to help students build up their resume, and offers many mock interviews so that students can gain skills that can help them in the future. I have also found that it is fairly easy to find internships in most fields.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: New Paltz tries hard to raise awareness about sexual assault on campus by organizing events where people can learn about the issue and providing classes for women to learn about defense mechanisms.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: On-campus housing is great if you get to live in the newly renovated buildings because they are nicer than the older buildings filled with asbestos.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I feel like sororities and fraternities don't do enough to give back to the community, and they focus more on social events.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics at SUNY NEW PALTZ are okay. After being there for three years I have come to the realization that the female teams are great, and they work hard.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is fine, again I don't participate but I do see them around doing events on campus and sometimes in my classes. I can't speak for how difficult or easy it is to join, but no one has anything against them.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am not the best to be rating athletics because I take no part beyond the occasional yoga/fitness class, so I am not really paying attention to the quality of our sports teams or facilities. I can confidently say that I am happy with the gym, they offer a lot of classes through the week and the facilities are new and clean.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love New Paltz. The classes are engaging, and I find that the work assigned is consistently fair and appropriate. I have had wonderful professors, with a few exceptions of course but I'm sure this is true for any school. There is only one professor I can think of that I truly disliked. The rest have been helpful and kind. The location is wonderful, the campus is right in town and you can walk anywhere. I have a car, but I'm sure freshmen will find the location convenient. Parties are always walking distance, too. For anything that is not, the cabs charge only $5 to go anywhere in town. I would highly recommend New Paltz for its quality education, diverse student body, and accepting nature. I feel very comfortable going to school here.

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.
