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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
