Paul Smith's College Reviews
The location of Paul Smiths is not for the faint of heart it really does get cold in the winter times. But if you find something to do the time you spend there is worth it. Not many other will have the experience of nature like you will at PSC. The food tends to be subpar so don't be afraid to cook for yourself. The academics at PSC are not overly difficult but the administration can be at times. If you find a professor you like talk with them. Go to their office hours and ask questions they will remember that in the end. If you seek to apply yourself and challenge yourself the professors will help you do that and advance your opportunities. The professors really do care about what you learn at PSC not how well you can remember it but how you can apply it.
Paul Smith's college is very unique due to its location, majors, and overall status. The college is located in the Adirondack Park in upstate New York, which benefits its wide variety of science majors. Because of the college being somewhat 'off the grid' there is not much to do outside of campus, unless you travel to a nearby town. Overall, the college is academically amazing, and inspiring to many people.
I love being able to get outside in the Adirondack's! Amazing location near Lake Placid and Whiteface mountain. Professor's are very helpful and guiding. People will go above and beyond to help you because it's a tight knit campus community.
