SUNY New Paltz Sucks

The academic standards are clearly slipping (as demonstrated by our newest Village Trustee), to the point where I am embarrassed to call myself a graduate of the institution. It obviously has no interest in working as a partner with our community, instead overburdening our local infrastructure and refusing to communicate, consult or compromise with either the Village or Town government. Now, SUNY New Paltz is shutting local union workers out of the ongoing construction projects being built on campus. Instead of contracting with our local workforce, SUNY has chosen Niram Construction, based out of Boonton, NJ.

Come show your support for our local union workers!

Demonstration: 6:30am-9:30am
Student Rally: 12:00pm-1:00pm

Activists and union members will remain for a Student Rally beginning at 12:00pm and ending at 1:00pm. Students will rally on Rte. 32 with union workers, followed by a march to the Haggerty Administration Building to let the SUNY New Paltz know that students stand behind local workers!

Rte. 32 across from the SUNY New Paltz campus.

Please stop by any time during the morning demonstration and be sure to bring yourself and all of your friends for the rally at 12:00pm!


  1. hmmm.. I know, why don't you just sue yourselves? oh wait... too late.

  2. "The academic standards are clearly slipping"

    Since 1850.

  3. SUNY New Paltz sucks. I don't think the standards are "slipping" necessarily though. The problem is that they don't have the staff or time to accommodate students with special needs. The disability resource center is a joke. Many of the professors are stuck up and "talk down" to the students, and have a "sink or swim attitude" rather than working with the students. There are a few excellent teachers, but they are not the majority. Another negative about SUNY NP (at least in the program I am in) is that many of the older, more seasoned professors retired, and have been replaced by those who are young and less experienced.
