Three top reasons why students should attend New Paltz is for the amazing academics, the beautiful area of New Paltz, and the updated campus. First, the academics of New Paltz is very important when choosing what school you would like to attend. Because of the school's expectations when they accept students, to me it shows me how important their academics are taken and that a degree from Suny New Paltz is a favorable degree. Another critical reason in choosing a school, is the area and town the school is located. I know that many people also choose New Paltz because of the beautiful town and area, especially in the fall, or being able to do many hiking trails and sight seeing! Many students decide to use their down time doing this and I truly believe that is important because the students are staying active as well. The last most important thing in choosing to attend New Paltz is the campus. Many people want to make sure the campus of the school they choose is appealing and up to date. The buildings are beautiful and New Paltz's campus is large, and always being updated. The breath taking glass student union building is located at the front of campus and is always an eye catcher! There are about fourteen different dorm rooms in which about six are suite style dorms, that most upperclassmen enjoy living in with their friends and a large common room area. Overall, these were the three main reasons in why I chose New Paltz and believe to be the best qualities about the school.
