Communities at New Paltz: A transformative First-Year experience
Communities at New Paltz is a specifically designed Living/Learning community program for First-Year students. This program offers four distinct living experiences featuring specific inter-disciplinary themes:
First-Year students who choose to participate in one of these interest-based communities will connect with other students who share similar interests, while gaining an introduction to the larger SUNY New Paltz campus and the surrounding New Paltz community. Students will have a unique opportunity to learn, explore, and connect with others in the context of an engaging academic and residential community.
