A few hours ago, you officially became part of the vanguard of creativity, intellect, and civic engagement. Welcome to The New School.

As a new student at one of the nation’s most unusual institutions of higher education, you will have a critical role expanding the frontiers of thought and contributing to The New School’s dynamic urban community. As you begin to get settled, keep a lookout for the New School News, a go-to online news source.

The News offers a glimpse of New School life that’s anything but ordinary. Updated several times a week, this comprehensive blog brings you stories about students, faculty, and upcoming special events. Every other week, we’ll send an email with links to feature stories that look in depth at the names behind the New School headlines.

In our back-to-school feature issue on August 23, you’ll get a road map of what’s new and notable in our Union Square/Greenwich Village campus neighborhood. On the academic front, you’ll learn how the launch of The New School for Public Engagement, our newest division, has opened up exciting interdisciplinary study paths that address the social, environmental, and entrepreneurial challenges of the 21st century.
