What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
New College of Florida was founded by independent thinkers for independent thinkers. The academic program here requires a student who is capable of taking on full responsibility for his or her education. Although, NCF students are notorious for their studious natures, many are also known for their love and exercise of fun.
Rebekah from Lake Panasoffkee, FL
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.
Maria from Cocoa, FL
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.
Stella, Sarasota, FL
All I can say is WOW! From the minute I stepped on campus into the pink marble College Hall that reminded me of Newport mansions..to the library and dorms I was excited. And the freedom of the feet... people who know will know what I mean.
MICHAEL from Clearwater, FL
New College is a fun and interesting place. The school is small and the community is close. The classes are fun, interesting, and directed towards your individual learning.
