2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students' interests vary and you definitely don't want to get into a controversial or political argument with them. Most of the students are very hard-working during the week. On the weekends most of them go out to parties but people are definitely not pressured to go out.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There's not much of a selection with 800 people.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Wouldn't know, but relationships are usually very casual.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Beaaaaaautiful girls everywhere!! Because New College is so artsy and natural, you'll get some girls who dress like hipsters and some who don't shave but so many of them are really pretty. They also have that grungy kinda feel to them a lot of times. The guys are a bit awkward a lot of times, but there are some really charismatic ones and they're usually really nice

5 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: People are independent and laid back. Mostly hippies and hipsters though. Very small, intimate community. Make some of the best friends of your life.

LGBQT friendly, liberal, and eccentric—the guys and girls at New College don’t reflect the mainstream. The decision to attend New College is not typically one that is completely rooted in social factors. People come for the academics. There are many introverts. There can be no denying that the school attracts a certain type of person. Many contend that this is changing, but others have their doubts. It’s true that heterosexual males have the upper hand in the dating scene, based on sheer numbers alone. Many students shed some of their inhibitions and insecurities they had growing up, and their self-confidence can sometimes be a bit intimidating. NCF is a place where physical attractiveness does not function as currency in the same way it does on many other campuses—personality and interest are key in attracting potential mates. While hookups and relationships exist, no generalizations can be made as to which of the two are more prevalent.

New College is a place where close relationships can form quickly and intensely. People who have dated for a week feel like it has been a month. The environment is conducive to relationships because of the coed dorms, and the fact that it is so easy to get to know everybody. A certain solidarity exists within the student body. It is hard to have superficial, transient hookups in a place where everybody knows everybody. The chance of seeing that person sometime in the very near future is dangerously high. A fling can become too awkward in a setting like this, and many opt out.

Facts & Statistics

Female Undergrads
Male Undergrads
Birth Control Available?
Yes, free condoms are available at Student Health Services.
Social Scene
You can usually find assorted groups of students hanging out outdoors on sunny afternoons. Different dorms have their own particular spots that inhabitants gather in to socialize. When students are busy with classes, it feels as if people tend to stay indoors, but the vibe is friendly. It is not uncommon for people to leave their doors unlocked.
Hookups or Relationships?
There is a bit of both. The small population makes both hookups and relationships easily exhaustible.
Dress Code
As casual as it gets-being barefoot and comfortably dressed is the norm. Some students take a keen interest in current fashions, but they are usually alternative. Many jokes are thrown out about the "hipsters" roaming campus.
