Honestly, I find that there is a lot of diversity at New Paltz. I cannot necessarily point out a specific stereotype. The school is a liberal arts college, so, many people go there to study art, music, creative writing, theatre etc. however, I would not say that "every student" is an artist. There is a wide variety of other programs. Also, since the school is a liberal college, most students seem to be open to embracing diversity and social differences.
