After SUNY New Paltz

New Paltz is my favorite place in America. The views are incredible. Mohonk Mountain is breathtaking and there is always a sense of peace that only nature can provide. I love the mentality of the people, specially the locals who are very welcoming and polite in general. Everything in New Paltz is engaging. Although academics are kind of tough. But there is a reason for that, my professors are doing their best to make me ready for the world which is becoming tougher and tougher. I am an Electrical Engineer student in New Paltz and i noticed that our program is growing rapidly. The growth is good but i also noticed that there are not a lot of minorities in the program; which at times makes me feel like an outcast. However, i take as a challenge and try to do my best. This is why i encourage people to apply to the engineering program in new paltz so that we could make it more diverse.

I was exposed to a variety of opportunities to learn and grow professionally and personally. Some issues like Campus Food need to be addressed but the people make it worth it to a degree.

New Paltz has a wonderful atmosphere, amazing people, and is always interesting. My only complaints are the campus food and the administration that doesn't always represent the students as they should be.
