State University of New York, New Paltz
Beyond the academic requirements, the Honors Program provides students with the opportunity to meet and work with other academically engaged students on class-related projects or extracurricular activities. The Honors Program organizes several trips per year, including visits to museums in New York City and hikes in the Hudson Valley. The Honors Program Student Advisory Board provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills. Members of the board organize art exhibits, events on campus, and trips. Students have access to the Honors Center 24 hours/7 days per week (private study area, kitchen, computers). First-year students have the option to live in Lenape Hall, a living and learning community. Students receive vouchers for arts events on campus.
