WAS my major, had to drop it because it didn't get easier with attending class and doing the homework. If you have a computer science background already, you MAY do fine. 1/3 of the class failed the 1st exam of only 2 exams. Currently, there are 2 professors teaching this course, Easwaren just started teaching level 1 and the result was disastrous for a third of us. Its 1 hour and 30 minutes lecture twice a week with a 3 hour lab with a teacher assistant where you get tested on the lecture you just touched based on in class. Teacher assistant, Mr. Burgeriere, was more of a hall monitor, he grades your labs but offers no help if your stuck on a problem even if it is not part of the lab quiz, it could be just a homework problem. No Help. Easwaren will take a vacation for a week and still have lab quizes so if you didnt get it the 1st time, you will fail it 2 times more with no help. I tried contacting for help, he didnt respond. Tutoring was available but it was limited 1 hour with a computer science student. I give him props, he was able to explain it better than the teacher. But again, Homework problems were given randomly with maybe 1 out of 20 questions that dealt with the lab quiz. Overall, teacher was friendly and knows his stuff, definitely not a beginner, but as an honor student with straight A's in my other courses, he was not a good teacher. By halfway at the final day for withdrawal, there was less than half of the original class that was actually still attending the class, thats roughly 20 out of 45.
Campus is great, love it, all the students are courteous, friendly. There is another level 1 teacher Des Reis, his class gets filled up fast, if you can get him, Take Computer Science. If you can't, hope you have time and money to waste.

Also it's not big into sports, nightlife sucks, people are artsy, town is filled with hippies, food is terrible. If you want to go to target or Walmart, or any big stores like that and malls, have fun driving a half hour to Kingston or Poughkeepsie. Many places in town are little individual-owned stores and restaurants. Also, they pride themselves on academics. I don't feel very challenged sometimes, especially with online work since you could look up the answers. I feel like I should be more challenged in my work and that I should learn more.
Bottom line: If you want any big name stores/restaurants, a fun and modern town, and people who aren't artsy, go to a different school. If you want to be challenged, go to a different school.

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.

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. Tue, 20 May 2014 10:46:05 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/NY/SUNYNP_comments.html
