Student Activities at New Paltz are planned and organized by students! The Student Association encourages and funds students who want to start their own organizations. New Paltz has traditionally had a number of organizations of cultural interest which sponsor social and educational programs including the Asian Student Association, European Club, Caribbean Student Association and many others.
In addition to the cultural clubs, there are associations which focus on sports, arts, religion, academics, and anything else that students might have an interest in. Joining a student organization provides an opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people.
The Office of Student Activities and Union Services, located in the Student Union Building room 209, (845) 257-3025 and the Student Association, located in the Student Union Building room 428, (845) 257-3070, can provide information on the activities of the various student organizations.
