SUNY New Paltz has made quite a name for itself. Recognized as one of the “best public regional universities in the North region” by US News and World Report; it is in the top 8% hardest New York colleges to get into and a “best college value” according to Kiplinger’s. Add to this list of honors SUNY New Paltz's recent recognition as a College of Distinction.

The US has more than 4,000 public and private higher learning institutions. With so many options and no way to visit them all, choosing where to apply can be a daunting task for students and parents alike. Colleges of Distinction is an independent evaluator of US higher education offering guidance to prospective students looking for the best college to suit their particular needs. The organization nominates schools for this designation based on four criteria: Great Teaching, Engaged Students, Vibrant Community, and Successful Outcomes.

Colleges of Distinction has recognized SUNY New Paltz as a place with “a uniquely diverse community, where people from around the world can ‘come as they are’ and collaborate in a friendly, tolerant, and supportive environment.” They also highlight the college’s innovative faculty, collaboration and internship opportunities, and arts museum.
