What is your overall opinion of this school?

SUNY New Paltz is what I consider to be a great school. It's large enough that there will always be new faces to see but small enough to make you feel comfortable. Although there are very small amount of places to eat at on campus and the food itself needs some work, every other thing about New Paltz is great. I would recommend this school to people who are specially into nature and liberal politics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the State University of New York at New Paltz is that the campus, students, staff, and outside social life is amazing. There is no other college I am considering because of the wonderful first and second impression I have had in my own personal opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally like attending SUNY New Paltz to a certain extent. The classes are great and engaging but the campus life is not for everyone. Besides going to classes, there is not much to do on the weekends for introverted people who do not drink, or go out.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I LOVE New Paltz. I transferred here from a SUNY school upstate and am so much happier here. It's a pretty diverse campus, with people from a variety of different backgrounds and beliefs but there is rarely animosity between groups. Students and faculty are all really welcoming and friendly and do everything they can to make everyone feel welcome and accepted. I used to be really shy, but the welcoming and accepting atmosphere on campus made me feel comfortable enough to really come out of my shell and speak my mind. Transferring to New Paltz literally changed my life for the better!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For me, SUNY New Paltz is a nice school if you want smaller lectures and classes where you can get more one-on-one interactions with your professor where eventually they will know your name. Professors are very helpful and have office hours where you can go find them for help or anything. Campus size is average. You can walk from one end of campus to the other with a reasonable amount of time. On-campus dorming is okay depending on what you prefer and then what you might end up with. There are dorms buildings that have been recently renovated where it is like a hotel, and then older ones that are still okay and give you this home feeling (I guess). All the dorms are kind of clustered together on one side of campus and then the academic buildings on the other side. Off campus housing is also available but you would need to find it yourself and consider the bills, roommate/housemates and other stuff like that. Right off of campus is the town so it isn't far to get to town to either do grocery shopping or to eat off campus. The food on campus is okay to a certain extent. There is one main dining hall that runs in a buffet style where you would use a swipe to get in and then you can eat as much as you want. Other than the dining hall, there are other food places on campus where you can use dining dollars at like the student union Building, one of the academic buildings, one of the dorm buildings and then two cafes (one located right outside the library and the other one it's own with one of the theatres on campus)... Meal plans are based on how many swipes to the dining hall you want per week (is required if living on campus). There is the 3 swipes and then around $1900 dining dollar plan, the 7 swipes with a little less dining dollars, the 10 swipes with even less dollars and the unlimited swipes with a bit of dollars. I'm not sure about the system anymore since they did change it since I was a freshmen, but freshmen were required to get the unlimited swipes meal plan for their first two semesters. Overall the food is okay.. but can get a little tiring near the end of the semester or year. Other than on-campus there are also quite a few choices of food off campus (use actual money) like Thai cuisine, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian/pizzeria, burgers, fast food (McDonald's and burger kings) and etc. Pricing is okay... could be cheaper in the city.. (I'm from the city.. hehe.. ). Other than food places, there are some shops in town and there are two supermarkets and a just a buck store where everything is actually a dollar! Not much to do tbh if you want to shop... the closest mall if around 30 minutes away in the next town tho. Overall, I think New Paltz is a good school. It's a nice and safe little town, and the people here are quite nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SUNY New Paltz has so far given me a college experience that I will remember for the rest of my life! The college's student community is very diverse with most of our student coming from all areas of New York, out of state, and internationally! The people I know are very much about the perfect balance between work and play, which is essentially the perfect balance! The school itself also contains many areas of study, so it's pretty common that the people you meet will most likely be from a different major or another department. New Paltz itself is very integrated into the student life culture whether it comes to eating at local restaurants, volunteering, fieldwork experience, and so much more!
