This school is perfect.Quite BrightEnglish
This school is perfect. It offers everything you need. The quality of education is fantastic, there are plenty of clubs to get involved in and the people are very friendly. The food is great and there is a lot to do in town. There is plenty to do in terms of night life, as there are many bars which often play live music and house parties are frequent. I know plenty of people who don't party but still really like it here, though. The mountains are close by with plenty of trails to go hiking/biking on as well as swimming holes and cliff jumps. The neighboring towns (Highland, Beacon, Rosendale, Poughkeepsie, etc.) are also very cool for day trips. New York City is very easy to go to, the bus station is right next to campus and within 1 hour your in the city. This school has everything to offer.

I love it here. perfect location (fairly close to the city), really friendly people, great town (everything is really integrated which is convenient). great professors and many cool events. party life is available, though not shoved in your face. music/artsy kind of atmosphere, but there are plenty of different groups if that isn't your thing. everyone i know seems to really like it here

SUNY New Paltz isn't just a great schoolBrightPsychology
SUNY New Paltz isn't just a great school for the money, it's a great school in general. You will find all types of people here, not just the stereotypical hippie. New Paltz specializes in teaching, visual arts, music, speech pathology as well as the liberal arts. They are trying very hard to expand their science, engineering and business programs. There is a lot of construction on campus which can be loud and annoying. Some buildings are gorgeous while others are ugly 1960's style. The surrounding area is beautiful and the town is quaint. There's a ton of restaurants, bars, coffee shops and a movie theater. With a car you can travel to nearby Poughkeepsie or Kingston. Most people who come here don't want to leave.
