If you reblog the images of campus that are mine, I 100% don’t mind if you remove the captions, but please leave at least my first name intact on those that are mine.
Leave Kenny’s name on Kenny’s too.
Hello. I want to attend new college. I was wondering if you could get away with having a cat in your dorm. Thanks! :)
There are people with catfish, snakefish, bunnyfish, etc.
I'm totally a current student here and I don't really want to ask this question over the forum so...here I am. How do CW's work? You know the content warnings we put on emails such as cw sexual assault or cw self harm. Is there some sort of conditions the text must be applied to for a cw to be used? Thanks!
TW/CW: rape mention
I mean, I try to use it even if I just mention something in passing without super (or any) detail.
e.g. like I tw/cw’d the top of this because of the example I’m going to use:
Sometimes I’ll mention like rape or a rapist or something that acknowledges that rape is a thing that exists and it’s very ‘light’ (in that I’m not going into detail about anything) and I’ll trigger and content warn it because I know sometimes just encountering the idea of something that is a trigger for me in a set of text where I wasn’t expecting it is a lot more jarring that one might assume and I’d rather have to encounter it ‘out of the blue’ before I start into something thinking that it’s not going to contain something that will be an issue for me.
Some maybe helpful sites/references (I haven’t super looked into these so subjective to flaws, but overall should be useful):
Thanks for asking; that’s something super important to use when applicable.

Does New College have an orientation for transfer students? If so, is it related to or similar to the freshman orientation usually?
There is an orientation for transfer students! If you transfer in the Fall, you have orientation with the first years (although you will have a few separate information sessions). If it’s in the spring, it’s just for transfer students. They’re only slightly different. The spring orientation is much smaller and tends to have less events, I believe.
Remember, you can get a ton of information from the New College admissions tumblr!
TRANS*GIVING is a weekend-long, arts-oriented community event hosted by NCF’s LGBTQIA clubs, Queery and Trans*Swagger, and our Gender Studies dept. to celebrate diversity and engage dialogue surrounding the experience of marginalization of queer and trans* youth in America, particularly within the context of the Southeast.
TRANS*GIVING will feature:
SATURDAY, NOV. 16th: OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
- Peer speakers (undergraduate students and recent graduates) from across the Southeast will facilitate workshops, give lectures, and create performances on topics ranging from trans* inclusivity at women’s colleges to growing up queer/trans* in the South, from fitting into gendered spaces as a non-binary individual to coming out in ‘the real world.’
- Creative work by local queer and trans* artists from Ringling College of Art and Design will be exhibited, and artists will be given opportunities to host gallery talks about the role their identities play in their work.
- Poetry readings, musical performances, etc. will be scheduled throughout the day, and a candlelight vigil for marginalized trans* youth will be followed by an open mic night.
- Representatives from Queery, Trans*Swagger, VOX/Planned Parenthood, the Gender Studies dept., etc. will be tabling with resources regarding queer/trans* identities and information about opportunities to get involved (socially and academically) on campus.
- Representatives from Trans* Action Florida, ALSO Youth, and Harvey Milk Festival will be tabling with information about getting involved in the larger Sarasota queer community.
- Lunch will be provided for attendants, as well as snacks and refreshments throughout the day.
hey y’all, this is a thing that is happening in november, and if you’re from srq or the surrounding area, you should definitely check it out!
The I <3 New College tumblr is now (well, has been) the NCF Admissions tumblr.
It is still student-run. Look at my extra-happy face:
Please submit your admissions and student life-related questions here!
Are there any opportunities at NCF or in Sarasota for a student interested in classical vocal performance and in opera? Not as a major, but as a serious vocal student, one who would like to keep working on vocal training at a high level while doing a liberal arts degree?
I think this is one of those things that would require personal delving/forging.
But the SRQ scene definitely has a lot of elements that cater to interests of like, retirement aged individuals, so places to seek out what you’re interested in should definitely be possible providing you were willing to seek it.
Do you have any advice for applying freshman about writing a good essay for NCF?
Write about something you’re passionate about. Make sure you sound like you care. Emphasize a good trait. Triple check it, then have a friend go over it as well. Read it out loud to make sure you like how it sounds.

Also I (Marisa am mobile so sorry if that messes up the formatting or anything), but I’m pretty sure my friend just wrote “I make art,” for one of hers and I talked a lot about my invisible disabilities (mental illness and migraines) and how those have helped shaped me and things that have shaped me and like that was stuff I recall talking about? But just be you and make sure it’s true to you? Have people you trust/are comfortable with and see if they think it feels like you? I helped give two interviews for the remaining CLC position and an important thing in after discussion was how much of the personality we could get/feel and although it was in person, there were written elements, so like put yourself into them too? Because that’s a large part of what they look for? You.
