Alumnae/i Visitation Policy and Access Guidelines
In 2011, the campus community led discussions about a guest and alumnae/i visitation policy. The NCAA board was invited to provide input in these discussions and additional input was sought from students, faculty, and staff. What has evolved from these thoughtful meetings is the alumnae/i visitation and access guidelines which can be found here.
Alumnae/i ID card
All alumnae/i of New College are eligible for an alumnae/i ID card which gives them access to special privileges and serves as an additional identification while on the New College Campus. The Office of Alumnae/i Affairs will issue an Alumnae/i ID Card to any alum who requests one, and pays the $10 processing fee.
The alumnae/i id card can be activated to allow you access to the Jane Bancroft Cook Library. To activate your card, you must bring it to the Circulation Desk at the Jane Bancroft Cook Library and complete an application. Staff will place a barcode on the back of your card and enter information into the Library Management System. Once entered into the system you will be allowed the following library privileges:
• 6 items from the Jane Bancroft Cook Library Collection may be checked out on your card at one time. Items are on loan for 3 weeks, no renewals.
• Use of the computers in the ARC (Academic Resource Center).
• Access to library databases on the ARC computers.
Alum ID cards do not allow for:
• Renewal of checked out items
• Remote Access (i.e. off-campus) to Databases
• Use of Interlibrary Loan or UBorrow services
• Use of library classrooms, group study rooms or labs
• Borrowing of equipment from ETS
How to Obtain an Alumni ID Card
You may contact the NCAA at email@example.com or 941-487-4676 to purchase a card. There is a $10 processing fee with a $5 replacement fee.
After careful consideration, the New College Alumnae/i Association decided to officially sunset the Four Winds Forum on September 6, 2012. Affinity Circles, the Four Winds Forum host site, changed leadership in December leaving us with little of the personalized attention to which we are accustomed. In addition, alum participation on the site has waned over the last few years while activity has increased on our other social media platforms.
Due to these circumstances, the NCAA has removed the Four Winds Forum and will now focus on growing our current Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter sites. We have created several small groups on Facebook and Linkedin to mimic those found within the old Affinity Circles site. We will also use our official Linkedin group and the various subgroups as a forum for alums and students to intermingle and ask for career advice and mentorship.
We are currently looking for alums to help us manage our Facebook and Linkedin groups by posting new and diverse content and encouraging their friends to join. If you are interested please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you would like to create your own specialized group not found here please let us know and we will be happy to work with you on establishing it.
Current Facebook groups include:
