About Paul Smith's
At Paul Smith's, it's about the experience. We've been pioneers in experiential education for more than 60 years - our students are at home both in the classroom and in the field, honing the leadership skills and entrepreneurial spirit that have been the hallmark of our graduates for generations. As the College of the Adirondacks®, we draw on industries and resources available in our own backyard while preparing students for successful careers anywhere.
With more than 14,000 acres to our name, your outdoor classroom is just a step away. Our campus sits in the heart of the Adirondacks, a 6-million-acre state park in New York that encompasses everything from boggy wetland to alpine forest. It contains a dazzling variety of plant and animal life - so much so that the United Nations has declared the region part of an international biosphere reserve.
