5 College Freshman

Athletics: we have almost no sports except for the sail team. People play basketball and court soccer casually, but its more drunk athletics than true competition!

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There really aren't sports, just the occasional fun game beween NCF and Ringling, but the facilities are nice and useful, and there are exercise classes.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are not an important part of New College. Although we do have sailing, soccer, football, and other teams, they are mostly for fun and exercise rather than serious sports. Teams meet often and people seem to have a lot of fun with one another.

5 College Junior

Athletics: We don't really have any varsity teams, the only teams that compete outside of our own school are fencing and sailing, and even those do so sparingly. We do not have much of a school sport culture. However, the flag football team has been gaining traction over the past few years.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gym is okay, but definitely not the best. The only sport team we have is sailing.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

New College students are either widely apathetic toward or supportive of the fact that there are no sports teams or official athletic programs. On the other hand, if students want to explore and/or partake in a specific sport, various informal programs exist: sailing club, flag football, soccer, basketball, tennis, racquetball, and fencing. There is also quite a high demand for dance and yoga classes, which are held in the fitness center aerobic room. NCF's version of athletics is very relaxed, inclusive, and casual. If there is a program you would like to start, students are often receptive to joining in. New College (typically) doesn’t attract the athletically inclined, so it doesn’t become an issue. People prefer alternative sports such as footbag (hacky sack), pingpong, and carrying heavy books to and from the library. Overall, Novo Collegians are not big into one's traditional idea of college sports.

The fitness center is very well attended, and the tennis courts are often in use. Basketball games are played on an almost daily basis. The racquetball facilities are wonderful; there are two four-wall indoor courts and quality rackets for student use. Lifeguards are on duty at the swimming pool, and there is a softball field. The athletic resources are available for those interested—they just don’t constitute much of the culture.

School Spirit
Many enrollees strongly identify as being a part of the New College community. The lack of large, organized extracurricular events makes it hard for people to show school spirit. However, most of the students who stick around are proud to be Novo Collegians, and they occasionally flaunt New College apparel. Students have a lot of personal investment in the ideals and vision of the school.
