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 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Our men's and women's athletic teams are very competitive in their respective sports.

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.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics at New Paltz are quite prominent at the school, our volleyball team recently won the national championship. The facilities are very nice as I am a personal trainer at the Athletic Center.
