• Campus Activities

  • At The New School, students can find the community they need to unleash their intellect, energy, and creativity in the world, both inside and outside of the classroom. With more than 50 student organizations on campus, intramural sports, athletics, and fitness classes, 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 to taking advantage of the opportunity to see groundbreaking speakers, exhibitions, and performances through our public programs.
