    WOW before visiting I heard a lot of opinions about New College but after taking the tour and talking to a few of the professors who are part of the computer science department (my biggest area of interest) it's one of my top schools.

    All I can say is WOW! From the minute I stepped on campus into the pink marble College Hall that reminded me of Newport the library and dorms I was excited. And the freedom of the feet... people who know will know what I mean.

    My dad graduated from New College of Florida back in the '70's, and from what I can tell it is a school for the most intellectual thinkers and students thee world has to offer. It provides these students with a type of education that it totally unique to any other college experience. I recommend the school greatly.

    This is a good environment to be in and there is plenty of opportunity. The only catch? You have to put good work in if you want awesome results out. Get ready to be pushed past limits that you have already set for yourself.

    This is a unique school, where academic opportunities are aplenty, and independent study is highly encouraged. Being a small, liberal arts school, student to teacher ratio is very reasonable, and students forge strong bonds with professors. At a student's fourth year of study, he/she is expected to develop a Thesis on one's Area of Concentration, and reach one's full potential.

    Excellent at presenting research opportunities to students. This tends to be a rather liberal school. There are no grades; rather, there are extensive narrative evaluations from the professors.

    New College is a great school for those who learn better with more attention from their professors. The culture is accepting and emphasizes social justice and tolerance. Students are encouraged to personalize their education as much as possible to make it really work for them, and the results are fantastic.

    New College is academically rigorous. The professors in all fields are excellent. The housing and food services could be better.
