A DISTINGUISHED PAST Founded in 1960, ew College opened in 1964 as a private college whose students would come from all parts of the nation and whose faculty and curriculum would reflect the highest standards of excellence. New College attracted immediate national attention for the nature and quality of its academic program. The Charter Class of 101 grew into an enrollment of 500. In 1967, when the first students were graduated, the College won accreditation. Soon graduates began to make their marks in chosen careers and in graduate and professional schools. As the College matured academically, inflationary pressures threatened its very life in the early 1970s. After exploring various strategies 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. New College was continued through a combination of support from the State and annual grants from the ew College Foun dation. Together, they enabled the College to remain small and to continue its distinctive program. While this year's class is graduating this weekend, members of the charter class are celebrating their 20th reunion. They and the other more than 1650 graduates of the College are in the midst of distinguished careers. Events, activities, programs, and facilities of the University of South Florida are available to all without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, handicap, or age as provided by law and in accordance with the University's respect for personal dignity.
