New students pose with Goliath the Gnu, the New College Student Council’s beloved mascot, during New Roots 2019/2020.

New College Student Council (NCSC) isn’t like your typical high school student council—NCSC offers a variety of opportunities! For example, you can: play on our intramural teams, get involved with the New College community by participating in our General Meetings, attend events, engage with awareness campaigns, get to know more fellow New College students and make lasting connections. NCSC has provided me — and many others — opportunities not only to listen and learn, but to lead and give back.

P.S. As the representatives of our student body, we are always excited to hear your ideas and what matters to you. Everyone is welcome, and we can’t wait to meet you!!

Nerissa FengNCSC President 2022–2023

The New College Student Council (NCSC) is made up of elected members of the New College student body. NCSC plays an important role in social programming, campus athletics, educational and awareness campaigns, student organization funding and college governance. In addition, NCSC supports ongoing initiatives at New College, such as Orientation, scholarships and awards, and facilities upgrades, to name just a few. 

Consisting of representatives from various academic programs and academic years, the elected NCSC members work to ensure that their constituents’ (that’s you!) voices are heard and that matters concerning the student body are attended to. Further, members of the NCSC represent New College students at New College Council, the University of Toronto Student Union and the St. George Roundtable, which is the collaborative body of elected student council presidents and heads of colleges and faculties at the University of Toronto, St. George Campus. 

NCSC prides itself on offering something for every New College student. Watch out for signature events, such as the Semi-Formal, Halloween Haunt and New College Apparel Pop-Ups. Take part in student organized informational sessions like housing seminars, and budget and resume-building workshops. Or why not get active with any one of the awesome intramural teams? We have basketball, hockey, Ultimate frisbee, volleyball and more! Better yet, join one of NCSC’s many committees and get directly involved with NCSC programming, planning and advocacy efforts.
