The Little Rebellion is an independent online digital publication produced by SUNY New Paltz students. We publish news articles, feature articles, photo galleries, videos, podcasts, polls, and data visualizations, with an approach somewhere between “chaotic energy” and “we’re just having fun with it.” In our passion for telling stories, we embrace the culture of New Paltz. No agenda. No bias. Just a little rebellion now and then.
