Most Helpful Review for State University of New York at New Paltz
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Cristina from White Plains, NY

The statement I am learning a lot at SUNY New Paltz is really a hit or miss depending on who your professor is. I have learned a lot from some professors, but I truly feel that other courses were an utter waste of time. If you suspect your professor doesn't know what they are doing after a few days of class, I suggest dropping it right away and adding a different one.

    New Paltz is a great town, with lots of cool stuff nearby to do (hiking, camping, mountain climbing..) If you like the outdoors you will love it. The campus is a really short walk from the actual town which is nice.

    SUNY New Paltz is the perfect environment for those who love the idea of being away from home, but close enough to give your family a visit. It is such a beautiful campus with astonishing views every time the season changes. Almost everyone you meet here is very generous and would go out of their way to help you out with whatever you need.

    SUNY New Paltz is a very diverse and open school. Most students get along and it feels like the entire student body is one big family. It is easy to make friends and to find people who are interested in just about anything, if you are someone who wants to start a business, a band, a fundraiser, or whatever random idea it may be, there will always be someone who will support you.

    It is a nice medium size campus and is surrounded by nature. The Dinning Hall food is average;I wish there was more variety. Most dorms do not have air conditioning unless it is one of the newer built dorms

    If you are a commuter student, especially if you have a family of your own, this school is NOT going to make any effort to accommodate you! The teachers might, depending upon who you get. If you are going back to school, don't go here!
