There are plenty of ways to stay active and have fun with your fellow Novos!

At New College we take a holistic approach to wellness which includes physical fitness, as well as building healthy social relationships through activities and sports. We strive to create an environment for students to develop leadership, teamwork, confidence and problem-solving skills through our many recreational programs. These programs include fitness, athletics and the waterfront and are designed for everyone no matter skill level.

Waterfront Program

Swim at the beach, learn to sail, or take a kayak out on Sarasota Bay! The boathouse on Caples Campus has wifi and is a great place to hang out on the lawn and study.

Recreation Center

Take a yoga class or swim in the pool, or enjoy the hot tub at the Recreation Center located on Pei Campus.


While we don’t have traditional sports teams at NCF, we have Athletic Student Organizations, Club Sports, and Cross College Alliance Teams.
