The First Year Experience at New College is a suite of programs spanning from June through April that are designed to support new students as they transition in and through their first year at the College. These programs group all new students with upper-year New College student leaders who will stay visible and accessible throughout the year. The First Year Experience consists of three marquee programs; SPROUT E-Mentorship (Summer), New Roots (New College Orientation), and SPROUT Mentorship (Fall-Winter).
