Incoming students should definitely have a liberal mindset. Since we are so close to the city there is a little bit of everything from a large homosexual population to what could be classified as "hippies." People on campus is very friendly and it is very possible that you would know everybody by name since it is such a small school so being sociable is a plus. Even for those who are not, there are enough clubs and organizations on campus that you will find your place.

As long as you have a desire, anyone can attend college.

Crysbel

There is no specific type of person that attends SUNY New Paltz. Yes, sure this school gets the repetition of being a "hippie" school, but there is a variety of people, and variety of places, activties, and events for these people. I won't lie and say that there isn't a larger population of the "liberal, hippie" student, but that does not mean that other students will not be accepted. To be a student at SUNY New Paltz is simply to have an open mind. To accept of different lifestlyles and people.

Whitney

libral artistic hippies

Jennifer

An open minded person who doesn't mind the out doors and likes the sight of a few mountains in your sunset view. You should come with an academic mind set but also be ready to havea great time. You should also be ready to meet people who are vastly different from you based on home towns, political views, sexual orientation, and many from other countires as well.

Michelle

I think the type of person who should attend this school should be willing to work for what they want out of their career. They should be motivated to work hard and be social as well. Making the right friends is very important because they will be by your side day and night literally. I also think the person should be strong-minded and able to stay true to who they are. There is no need to change who you are just to feel like you "fit in." They should bring their own personality that makes up this diverse campus.
