First World Graduation

One of the most vital traditions on the SUNY New Paltz campus continued during the 2017 Commencement weekend, as more than 100 SUNY New Paltz students of color stood before a standing-room-only audience of family, friends and faculty members and were inducted into the First World New Paltz alumni society.

First World Graduation
We are our ancestors’ wildest dreams. We are the generation that has the power to change the world, a world that is becoming more open to change. We are about to enter the workforce and make it diverse – but there is unity in our diversity.”
Student Association President Yaranny Reynoso '17 (Black Studies, Psychology)
