The occasion provides a rare and valuable opportunity for faculty mentors, close family and friends to come together and recognize the dedication of select undergraduate and graduate students who performed at an exceptional level in the classroom, independent research, internships and jobs, and leadership positions.

Students representing all five of New Paltz’s schools – the School of Business, School of Education, School of Fine and Performing Arts, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the School of Science and Engineering – as well as the students pursuing upper-level degrees through the Graduate School, were named Outstanding Graduates this semester.

They were selected by a faculty nomination process that alludes to the instrumental role New Paltz instructors play in accommodating students’ intellectual ambitions and helping channel their ardent creativity.
