New College sends newly accepted students care packages

Bay 9 News, April 7, 2016
A Sarasota college is asking students to be a part of their team in a unique way.
Instead of sending letters or e-mails to newly accepted students, New College of Florida sends an Admission Celebratory Package. It is a box full of confetti, a t-shirt, sunglasses and a folder that says “Congratulations, you’re in!”
“We’ve seen, on our Facebook page and on Twitter, students opening their boxes and showing how excited they are and how they are proud of I’’m going to New College,’ ” said Sharon Alcock, Assistant Director of Enrollment.  “It’s just a proud moment for them and their families.”
