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.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - 11:30am

While the rest of the human world sleeps, a Paul Smith’s College freshman and his research partner sit in silence on the muddy bank of a small pond, headlamps illuminating the notebooks on their laps.

Based on their experiences outside of the classroom, nine out of 10 Paul Smith's grads get work in their chosen field or go to grad school within six months of graduation.

In the Adirondacks, sustainability is a way of life – and it's incorporated into the fabric of Paul Smith’s College. Whether our curriculum, our organic maple syrup, our campus garden, or our surroundings, we take going green seriously.
