• Campus Activities

  • 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.
