"I thank God for the opportunity to live at New College. It is one of the best experiences of my life."
LAURA FROM BLAYNEY, NSW - STUDIES FINE ARTS - ALUMNI’S CHOICE AWARD, NC ART SHOW
I moved to New College on my birthday and I remember being so scared of living in the city, away from my quiet country home and everything I had ever known. However, the minute I walked in the door I was greeted by my lovely ‘oldies’ singing happy birthday and showering me with oversized birthday badges and party hats. Ever since that first day I have felt so incredibly at home here. Impromptu fun has become a normal part of life.
The people here are some of the most amazing people I have ever met. Not just the residents but the staff as well. The kitchen staff, cleaners and reception always greet us with a smile and have come to know us all individually. It has only been five months but the friends I have made here have become my family and even though at the end of our studies we will be spread all over the world we will keep in touch with each other for the rest of our lives.
