Mission Statement

Smart. Playful. Energetic. Free-spirited. Politically active. Compassionate. Humanistic. Opinionated ... yet with an open mind. And just a little zany ... but in a studious, scientific sort of way. All of these have been used to describe New College, and we are proud of that. After all, college should be about exploring new ideas and challenging yourself to reach higher than you ever thought you could. It should be about meeting new people from throughout the country, and around the world. And it should be about establishing friendships, both with your fellow students and with faculty who will become lifelong mentors for whatever academic and personal goals and dreams you may have.
