Paul Smith’s College
Paul Smith’s NY
When it comes to cookie-cutter colleges, Paul Smith’s is anything but. In fact, it’s the only 4-year college inside the world-famous Adirondacks. At PSC, it’s about the experience. Students develop hands-on skills in 20+ majors, such as culinary arts, forestry, environmental science, business, surveying, hospitality, outdoor recreation, and more. It’s an unusual academic approach, and it works: 90 percent of graduates are employed or in grad school within six months. Living and learning at PSC requires a special kind of student—someone who values the abundance of our natural landscape and embraces a spirit of creative self-reliance.
