State University of New York at New Paltz

The State University of New York at New Paltz, a highly-selective 4-year public university with about 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students, provides one of the nation's most open, diverse, and artistic environments in order to prepare students to excel in ever-changing times that demand creativity and worldliness. New Paltz has more than 100 undergraduate programs in liberal arts, sciences, engineering, business, education and fine and performing arts supporting our mission of academic excellence and innovation. The College prides itself on providing a challenging and student-centered learning experience through close studentfaculty collaborations, mentored and independent research opportunities, internships and fieldwork, community service, study abroad options, and a community diversity that provides a real-world point of view. The only residential public university in the Mid- Hudson region, New Paltz embraces its culture as a community where talented and independent minded people from around the world create close personal links with real scholars and artists who love to teach. All this leads to graduates who have an outstanding learning experience that will serve them well for their professional and personal lifetimes. Poised to serve as the educational and research leader for the technologies of the future-notably solar energy and 3D printing, with the spirit of entrepreneurship at the heart of it all-New Paltz faculty encourage students to question, experiment and discover in ways that lead to innovative thinking. Since launching the Hudson Valley Advanced Manufacturing Center in 2013, the College's groundbreaking 3D printing initiative has integrated strengths in engineering, computer science, technology, and the arts. New Paltz has added state-of-the-art 3D equipment, created a certificate program in digital design and fabrication, forged publicprivate partnerships with industry leaders, garnered over $12 million in state and private funding, promoted collaboration among students, faculty and regional businesses, and opened the nation's first MakerBot Innovation Center in 2014. It also launched a new undergraduate major in mechanical engineering. Our tradition of intellectual discovery is enhanced by a location of stunning natural beauty, in a dynamic college town, 90 miles north of metropolitan New York City. Largely as an outgrowth of a 5-year (2008-2013) capital plan, the physical campus has improved dramatically, including the construction of new residence halls (2001, 2004, 2015) and major renovation of existing halls; the opening of the Athletic and Wellness Center (2006); renovation of the Student Union Building, including the addition of a now-iconic pyramidal glass "Atrium" (2010); renovation of Old Main (2012), the Sojourner Truth Library (2016) and Wooster Hall (2016); construction of a new science building (2017) and planning for a new "engineering innovation hub" (2018). New Paltz consistently ranks among the nation's top institutions for high quality, affordability and best value. The College ranked in U.S. News and World Report's "Top Ten Best Public Regional Universities" (2009-2013) and ranked No. 4 among "Best Public Regional Universities in the North." The College ranked No. 2 in the Affordable Colleges Online list of "Top 50 Affordable Colleges with a High ROI," a list of the nation's most affordable colleges with the biggest return on investment (ROI). Kiplinger's Personal Finance named New Paltz a "Top 100 Best Value in Public Higher Education."
