Class/labs are taught outside (if in the sciences programs). Beautiful campus.


Paul Smith's is focused on hands-on experiance to the extreme- everything has some hands on aspects. For the type of student attending, it's the best possible environment to learn in! From culinary Arts(my major) to forestry, we learn and are taught by example and demonstration.


We live in the middle of nowhere. We are 20 minutes from the nearest town. It is beautiful. The teachers are wonderful, they really love what they do, and they're good at it. The people here are much less judgemental than at other places. It's easy to fit in, even if you were a wierd kid in high school. People complain about the food, but it gets better every semester. Even with the long, harsh winters, this place really grows on you.
