Paul Smith's College Reviews
I like the small school feel. You really get to know everyone well and make lasting friendships. Most people going to Paul Smiths have similar desires and interests. This makes it easy to find a friend that you can connect with. Location is whar separates this college from most. It is beautiful. Yes, it does get cold, but you are likely the type of person who has been outside enough to cope with the cold if you are going to Paul Smiths. Academically you get to know each of your professors very well. With small class sizes and labs there is a unique hands-on learning experience that other colleges just can’t match. One thing I would change is the food selection. There just isn’t much to choose from and what is prepared isn’t in that great of quality. The library is a great environment to get homework and studying done.
Paul Smith's is a wonderful place. As I continue to excel in academics; I find it as a result of the excellent support the professors provide. Hands on experience while learning helps students like me, learn more about the topics they study. In addition, the various types of people you meet in a small community like Paul Smith's become lifelong friends.
This school is in the Adirondacks. You can't help but feel like you are constantly camping. The dorms are big and nice and always clean. There is so much to do. We have a salt water pool to swim in and Lower St. Regis Lake is literally our backyard becuz it's literally on campus. We can go swimming, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and we don't even have to leave the school. All the buildings are rustic and cabin like. I love it here!
