Honors

Congratulations and Welcome to the Honors Program at SUNY New Paltz!

The Honors Program is not just about academics, though that is certainly our focus. We are interested in creating an experience that is both challenging and rewarding.



"Starting college can already be nerve-wracking and a bit scary, and starting college in a pandemic can intensify these feelings. During these unprecedented and uncertain times, the Honors Program serves as a community and a support system even more so than it already does in normal times. If you have a question or a concern, or a problem, or you just need someone to talk to, there is always someone in Honors who will be there to listen and help. The Honors Program is even more of a comfort to students as we all try to navigate this new reality."

- Isabelle Hayes // '19 Political Science // Honors Orientation Liaison '16'17
