4 College Sophomore

Weather: When it's sunny and warm, it's beautiful and enjoyable. Everyone is outside. Even when it's cold and rainy, there is always a way to enjoy the day.

5 College Senior

Weather: I love the cold an snow, so a longer winter doesn't bother me. As soon as it breaks 50 degrees everyone is hanging out outside. New Paltz as a town and campus is very focused on the outdoors. I have taken a few classes that allow us to go up to the mountains and the streams nearby. That's a unique and awesome experience.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

New Paltz experiences typical Northeastern weather and climate. The upside of this is that one can truly experience the four seasons in all their glory; the downside is that sometimes there are some unbearably cold winter days. The three (sometimes four) winter months at NP are bleak, gray, and frigid.

However, the depressing winter is made up for with the awesomeness of spring, summer, and fall in the Hudson Valley. Spring and summer days are long, temperate, and bursting with life, and autumn is unparalleled in terms of beauty, evidenced by the annual pilgrimage of "leaf-peepers" at nearby Minnewaska State Park.

Did You Know?
University-wide snow days do happen, though not often. Individual professors usually cancel classes themselves if inclement weather stands in the way of classroom attendance.
