What's one highlight of your New Paltz experience that you'd like to share?
"I went cliff jumping at High Falls with friends. I thought I'd just tan and hang out. Some of my friends with me were lifeguards. Because of all the support I felt, I took a leap of faith – literally! I jumped. It was exhilarating. A big rush. So now, when I face a challenge, I know I did that – so I can do this new thing, too."
