4 College Junior

Diversity: New College tends to gather people who feel very strongly about diversity, acceptance, and feminism. This generally makes for a environment truly without walls where any forms of discrimination are quickly condemned and the offenders harshly judged. Sometimes, though, the student body can be a bit overzealous and blow events out of proportion. It's a very controversial topic and people have a wide range of opinions on the matter.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: As far as sexual orientation and LGBTQ life, students are very diverse and accepting. The population is mostly white, middle-class, but minorities are respected and accepted for the most part.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: If you feel unaccepted or like a 'freak' come to New College.
This school is very very accepting of people from all over, with different sexual orientations, and if New College has one thing, its diversity. Because of just how much diversity we have in our school, we are very careful and caring I would say. The faculty stress acceptance as our schools motto and this is one of the things that makes us truly unique. New College: where all of the smart outcasts arrive to thrive.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Very homogenous politically and religiously, practically everyone is liberal.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: New College totes itself off as being this college filled with diversity but its really mostly in a strictly sexual sense. Think tumnlr.

Heterogeneity is not New College’s forte. To be fair, most of its peer institutions suffer from the same ailment. New College is a relative bargain for in-state students; therefore, most of its populace reaps that advantage. Because it is a fledgling college, NCF hasn’t been able to garner the reputation necessary to achieve optimal diversity. But one thing is for sure: This is only true if one takes a narrow conception of diversity. When it comes to sexual preference, socioeconomic status, age, intellectual interests, and personality, New College has much to offer. It is a campus full of outspoken, unique, and vivacious characters.

The student body has voiced its complaints to the administration over the lack of racial and cultural diversity, and Admissions does what it can to satisfy the demand. New College itself is not economically or racially diverse, however. The campus has been opening many dialogues regarding diversity, and it is an issue close to many students' hearts.
