What is your overall opinion of this school?

This college is terrible. Without telling you beforehand, they will overcharge you for your room, you must pay an additional 900 dollars at the beginning of the year which they pay back at the end of the semester. The parking is terrible, they have tried to charge me over 500$ in parking tickets alone, and they will hold your college credit hostage and extort you for this money without thinking twice. They will never let you live off campus, even if you have a lease and are living with your partner they will charge you for an overpriced dorm. My experience at new college has been horrendous, I would not send my worst enemy to this school. Also if you’d like to transfer to another school you can forget having any credits from new college transfer over. So why go through the headache of finding out how terrible this school is, just take the advice of the majority of new college students and don’t go here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ultimately, as much as I complain, it's a good school. It big time has its problems - limited class selection, pretty terrible housing options, odd hours for on-campus food and not a whole lot of stuff nearby. However, the classes themselves are always interesting. They're super small, a class of 30 or 40 people is considered big, the professors and students are generally pretty engaged. We have tonnes of flexibility in what we're learning, and the school is super research oriented. Admin has some problems with prioritizing the right things, and with communicating with students, but I enjoy most of my time there, and I feel like I'm always learning something.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy attending New College. My professors and I will hang out and just talk sometimes if there are a few of us meandering the academic buildings. Everybody is passionate about something, and you may not feel the same, but it feels good to be in such an emotionally charged environment. Sure, we may not have top food or dorms, but it's the people and unbeatable academic setting that gets you to stay. No, New College is definitely not for everyone, but if you're looking for something I've mentioned above, you'll be right at home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school, in fact it is one of the best liberal arts in the country. Its small class sizes (the highest I have ever had is 40, and the smallest so far being 14) is amazing. So you will get to know everyone in your area, and learn so much all while getting the one-on-one attention you need. Also despite what people say the food has greatly improved, they can even accommodate vegans and vegetarians Though it has some faults. There is no special housing prices/any program really for those of us who are disabled and require special accommodations, so your bill goes through the roof. Also the no grades thing is great and allows you to learn more, but it makes applying for simple scholarships very difficult. So while this school is on the cheaper side, you may want to keep that in mind if you are struggling financially. (Luckily the mall is nearby and has a free for students bus, so many students are able to get jobs, but that can only help so much). And yes it is true that no one wears shoes :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is unique and absolutely incredible. I would not want to attend anywhere else as I doubt any other school could attend to my personal academic, extracurricular, social, and monetary needs in the way that New College of Florida does. The classes, teachers, and student body are all ambitious, welcoming, and incredible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is academically focused but very laid back when it comes to our social lives. The classes are fun, challenging, and intriguing, while the campus itself is beautiful and offers a lot of resources to the students attending. There are plenty of groups and clubs to join and attend the meetings of, there's a variety of courses to choose from, and the classes are all small, allowing the students to develop relationships with their teachers in a professional manner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Though the students generally leave much to be desired, they are very active and vocal about their opinions; that is for sure. The academics, on the other hand, is my main reason for attending. The school's approach to learning promotes independent thinking and really allows for intellects to thrive. The system, though sometimes complex to outsiders, is refreshing and new. With class sizes being small, there is this teacher-student interaction that is important to have. This college helps prepare you for the real world and really earns its title of being an honors college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I can't imagine having gotten a better undergraduate education anywhere else! Sarasota is a warm beachside city with plenty of great shops and restaurants, and New College's beautiful campus sits right on the bay. Class sizes are small, education is individualized, and the narrative evaluation system keeps the coursework very rigorous. New College students work hard and play hard!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think, the thing with New College is, you either get it, or you don't. There's no in between here because everyone is for the most part extremely intellectually homozygous, because it's a collection of people who have no home somewhere else, because it's a conglomeration of activists who are to tired to be angry anymore, because it's different, because it's an experience. You either feel at home or you don't and if you do feel at home it'll be one of the best feelings that you'll ever have.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

There is a stereotype that students at my school are heavily into drugs. This stereotype is not really true. Our school is more open about teaching people how to do drugs safely, all schools have drugs.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Activities involve parties with music and themes, and flag-football.

Describe the students at your school.

The students at this school vary from progressively liberal to slightly conservative. You can always find people who share your interests. We speak openly about gender pronouns, sexualities, and our interests.

What are the academics like at your school?

Our school has a pass-or-fail mentality. Most students are internally motivated to do well and must be able to prove to their professors that they have learned the material.
