New College provides an ideal learning environment for intellectually curious, motivated students who thrive on active learning and are drawn to an intellectually rigorous curriculum. Our student-centered academic mission and affordable state tuition consistently attract high rankings and praise from U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review, and Forbes. Our residential campus is home to over 450 students each year.
The 110-acre campus blends classic landmark buildings with modern facilities. New College’s visionary master plan incorporates state-of-the-art environmental design into campus architecture and landscaping.
