FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION Sarasota--One hundred young men and women of "unusual promise" will pioneer a unique educational venture starting September 21 here. The students comprise the charter class of New College, opening for the first time this year to provide individualized programs of learning in the arts and sciences. Represented in the charter class are selected students of 28 states and three foreign lands. Local area students are: (See attached list.) The class begins its studies on the college's oak-shaded waterfront caQpus adjoining famous Ringling Museums. A stimulating faculty, with world renowned historian Dr. Arthur J. Toynbee as visiting professor of history, will challenge the students to maximum individual achievement. New College President George F. Baughman said, "Our students have been selected for their potential leadership and unusual promise. We feel they have the motivation to be challenged by our high standards, faculty and tutorial system." "Students will be encouraged to search out fundamental truths of civi-lization to equip themselves for leadership in tomorrow's world," Dr. Baughman said. Rather than teaching facts, New College seeks to instill in its students a love for self-education. The student will have the opportunity to probe most deeply into his or her area of special interest.


Much of their work will be done independently during an 11-month aca demic year. Continuing evaluation by faculty, tutors and a college examiner will replace conventional grades. The three class periods of 12 weeks each will be separated by 4-week reading, research or travel periods. There will be annual comprehensive examinations and a degree will be awarded after three years. The charter class was selected after more than 3500 high school seniors attracted by New College's emphasis on individualism and academic excellence --inquired about attendance. They will reside in residential houses, attend seminar-type classes, do research in the 20,000-volume college library and participate in the cultural and recreational-sports life of the area. Construction of the first group of campus buildings, designed by I. M. Pei of New York, is now under way. Students will attend classes in existing campus buildings, including the stately Charles Ringling Mansion, now known as College Hall. They will be housed temporarily in the Landmark, nearby Gulf front resort, which has been turned over to the college for that purpose.
