It's About the Experience.

Inspiring faculty. A one-of-a-kind campus. Lessons that last. 

At Paul Smith's, we set the standard in experiential learning - the idea that doing is an important part of learning. It's a concept at the core of everything we do, and at the heart of our students' success.
