What Students Are Saying

3.48 Average Rating
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.
Kellie from Cutchogue, NY
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.
