          • 1983-1985, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), English, Graduated Summa Cum Laude

            New Paltz worked for me!Got a great and entirely useful 'creative writing' BA from New Paltz (which led to, I think, a pretty successful career in advertising, marketing, etc.) Also loved the region (trails, winding back roads, access to the Hudson and NYC). And, best of all, met my spouse Lisa there, to boot. I would recommend SUNY New Paltz to anyone seeking a solid Liberal Arts education in a beautiful part of the world!

          • 2005-2009, Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), Painting & Drawing

            Couldn't have been better anywhere elseSUNY New Paltz provided me with the supportive and encouraging environment I needed as a young duckling. NP is a safe & enriching town with excellent professors. The perfect mix of anything. I'm so grateful to have chosen such a wonderful school.

          • 1975-1979, MFA, Graphics, and Ceramics, A

            SUNY New Paltz was a great school for me.I studied there twice. I did my MFA in Ceramics in the 70's and it was the best fit for me. My artistic style was nurtured and I grew into the best artist I could be under the teachers I studied under. I went back to New Paltz to get a degree in graphic design recently and the program was great for me. I love SUNY New Paltz.
