Made in NY 

SUNY New Paltz is situated in the heart of New York’s historic Hudson Valley region, just 90 minutes north of New York City and its unparalleled artistic, educational and professional opportunities. Called “the new Brooklyn” by the New York Times, the Hudson Valley is home to multiple emergent and thriving creative communities, a broad variety of cultural institutions and artists, and some of the best hiking, climbing, biking and camping the Northeast has to offer. The striking vistas of the Shawangunk and Catskill Mountain ranges has inspired countless artists through time. New Paltz is a vibrant, idyllic community with an established legacy at the forefront of environmental and social justice movements. The College holds as a core institutional value the creation of a campus environment that is inclusive and respectful of national, racial, ethnic, class, gender, and sexual diversity.
