The First Twenty .. Fiv e Years Founded in 1960, ew College opened in 1964 as a private college whose students would come from all parts of the nation and who e faculty and curriculum would reflect the highest standards of excellence. New College attracted immediate national attention for the nature and quality of it academic program. ew building aro e on campus. The Charter Class of 101 grew into an enrollment of 500. In 1967, when the first students were graduated, the college won accredita tion. Soon graduates began to make their marks in cho en careers and in graduate and profes sional schools. As the college matured academically, inflationary pressures threatened its very life in the early 1970's. After exploring variou trategies for survival, the college administration and trustees pro posed to the Board of Regents of the State University System of Florida a novel plan that allowed the institution to become a free-standing college within the University of South Florida, sharing the campus with the University's regional campus academic program. Special action by the Florida Legislature set the stage for this unique partnership to occur. ew College was continued through a combination of support from the State and annual grants from the New College Foun dation. Together, they enabled the College to remain small and continue its distinctive program. In 1985, ew College celebrates a double anniversary. Twenty-five years have passed since its founding and lO years since the College became a part of the University. More than 1550 men and women have graduated and many already are in the midst of distinguished careers. Today's Commencement celebrates the life span of ew College and all of those faculty, students, staff, and trustees who have helped it to continue.
