At The New School, students can find the community they need to help them unleash their intellect, energy, and creativity in the world, both in and outside of the classroom. There are more than 40 student organizations on campus as well as intramural sports, athletics, and fitness classes, ensuring that you will find people who share your passion.
Social awareness is core to the university's ethos, so many students dedicate their out-of-class time to making a positive impact on the world or taking advantage of the opportunity to see groundbreaking speakers, exhibitions, and performances through our public programs.
There are student clubs tailored to your interests — from social activism to contemporary art and photography to urban policy advocacy. Explore the possibilities offered by our student organizations and meet classmates who share your passions.
We provide free group fitness classes, intramural sports, and outdoor adventures throughout the city, like rock climbing and bike rides. Find your community through wellness.
"We are The New School’s adventure squad: We train, swim, dance, hike, rock-climb, snowboard, and everything in between. We help create community."
Through more than 1,300 events each year, students get a front-row seat to history as it’s being made. Here you can see thought leaders and luminaries grapple with the most pressing issues of the day. Take a look at our upcoming workshops, lectures, performances, interviews, and more.
