Study Abroad Update, Spring 2022 

To the New Paltz Community,   

Welcome to the Spring semester! I would like to congratulate all New Paltz students on their dedication to learning throughout this pandemic, acknowledging the challenges you have faced as well as your resourcefulness and support for each other. While we need to continue our commitment to protect our own health as well as that of each member of our community, it is time to make plans and move ahead.   

As President Christian wrote in his welcome message “I am grateful for the dedication of students to learn about themselves and the world around them and to prepare for life, livelihood, and citizenship.”   

International education helps students to discover the world and discover themselves.  It advances learning and scholarship, fosters understanding and respect among people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives and is essential for developing globally competent citizens and leaders. 

After almost two years, New Paltz students are studying abroad again!  Others are actively making plans to participate in summer and fall programs, and even more are collaborating with academic advisors to assure that study abroad fits into their eight semester graduation plans.   

I invite you to join our upcoming study abroad fairs and information sessions.  Make an appointment to meet with our study abroad advisor.  Apply for a passport.  Start your application to study abroad.  It’s not too early to take the steps to make your dreams come true! Your future awaits! 

Have a great semester!
