About New Paltz

What's in a Building Name?

SUNY New Paltz owes much to the rich history and traditions of the Mid-Hudson Valley region. Many buildings on campus were named in remembrance of the peoples, families and individuals who helped make this institution, and the Village in which it stands, the strong and vibrant community we know today.
