New College showers prospective students with attention

Herald Tribune, April 4, 2016
SARASOTA – Students who applied to New College of Florida may want to get a broom when they receive letters detailing their admission status.
Most colleges just send letters starting with “Congratulations!” or email a link that shows whether the student was accepted.
But New College sends sunglasses and confetti along with its acceptance letters. Weeks or sometimes months later, they follow up with knick-knacks such as ready-for-coloring drawings of the campus, some origami and handmade tie-dyed t-shirts.
