At the heart of the New College experience is its student life.
The college offers students extracurricular and co-curricular programming, experiential learning, community engagement and leadership development, all of which support students’ academic and personal success. As a student at New College, you will have opportunities to take part in many enriching activities, such as our Let’s Talk Days, SPROUT mentorship meet-ups, professional development opportunities and social experiences. You also may want to get involved in the New College Student Council, the New College Residence Council, or one of the many clubs and groups housed at New College.
Student Involvement leads to an increased sense of belonging which is consistent across students of all demographics.
