new paltz is frequently ranked as one of the best small state universities in the country. it boasts a highly trained intellectual faculty with many years of experience in their fields. the neighboring community is very friendly and open to people from a diversity of backgrounds.
Ekene-Maria from Walden, NY
A relaxed and comfortable atmosphere but the parties are there if you want them. There are challenging courses with great professors, but also easy-get-by ones, SCHEDULE ACCORDINGLY!! A green, pretty campus that is not too big but not too small.
