The Joan Weill Adirondack Library, which opened in 2002, is an award-winning
structure that commands sweeping views of Lower St. Regis Lake.
At Paul Smith’s College, it’s about the experience. The college, whose
campus is on the shores of Lower St. Regis Lake, is the only four-year
institution of higher education in the 6-million-acre Adirondack Park of New
York State. Our programs, in fields including hospitality, culinary arts,
forestry, natural resources, entrepreneurship, the sciences, and many
others, draw on industries and resources available in our own backyard while
preparing students for successful careers anywhere.
