We at The Little Rebellion are a student-produced online publication at the State University of New York at New Paltz. We strive to bring you the most accurate, balanced, fair and relevant coverage in the local area. We pride ourselves in maintaining journalistic standards rooted in tradition. The media of today has focused on the wrong things. We seek to break away from the current status quo. We rebel by doing it the way it’s supposed to be done.
