Advising at New College

From navigating mini-classes to completing your final thesis project, your academic life at the college will largely be shaped through the conversations you have with your sponsor.

NAVIGATING NEW COLLEGE

Navigating New College well is your key to success, and your faculty sponsor is your most valuable partner on the journey.

From mini-classes to your baccalaureate exam, your academic life at the college will largely be shaped through the conversations you have with your sponsor. We call our advisors “sponsors” for a reason: instead of merely assigning classes to you, they work collaboratively with you, setting goals and forging a path that brings them to fruition.

The information on these pages is meant to support students, their sponsors, and anyone else who might have an advising-related question. For more detailed information, students should always speak directly with their sponsors and appropriate campus offices.
