Comprehensive Student Support

What is a comprehensive support philosophy?

From your first mini-classes to your baccalaureate exam to your first job interview, you can turn to faculty and staff members to help you plan your path to graduation and beyond. A team of advisers, mentors and coaches will collaborate with you as you choose classes, explore areas of concentration, seek internships, conduct research, enhance academic skills, and pursue international opportunities. Just as importantly, you’ll find many resources on campus to support your physical, mental and emotional well being.

Meet Your Support Team

Being New at New College

To help you transition to college, you’ll enroll in our SET SAIL First-Year Seminar Program—led by a teaching team that will introduce you to career coaches, librarians, writing assistants and more. Your faculty adviser will work with you to develop your academic contract each semester, helping you choose courses and pursue learning opportunities within and beyond the classroom.

Get Social by the Seaside

Close your eyes and envision a vibrant campus on the waterfront, filled with sunset study sessions and sailing adventures. Welcome to your happy place. There’s something for everyone here—from student-led clubs and organizations, and The Student Activities and Campus Engagement (SA[u]CE) office throws activities, events and cultural celebrations and volunteer activities year-round.

Mind Your Body and Spirit

While you’re connecting to your new campus, you’ll have full backing from the Counseling and Wellness Center, Advocacy and Accessible Learning Center, and the Office of Outreach and Inclusive Excellence. Meanwhile Campus Recreation will get you out on the water, in the Recreation Center, or connected to a student-led athletic club.

Come As You Are: Uniquely Brilliant.

You’ll feel at home in our diverse, inclusive campus environment, where you can be exactly—and brilliantly—you. Openness, kindness and mutual respect are what make us a close-knit community.
