  • Meet Our Student Team

  • Since 2009, current students who work for the university Welcome Center have shared their insider view of life at The New School and its colleges. Our student team interacts with prospective applicants and families at daily admission events — including our Virtual Student Panels and My New School Student Series, which you can find in the Webinars section on our Plan Your Virtual Visit webpage; through email and phone conversation; and on our student-run Welcome Center Instagram account and Admitted Student Facebook groups. Our students look forward to hearing from you and helping to answer your questions!
