Message to Graduating Students One of my philosophy professors used to say that there are some things that don't require a theory. Surely one of those things is the undiluted pride you and your family members are entitled to feel at this moment. As you look back on all that you have experienced and achieved at New College, I trust that you will enjoy the abiding satisfaction that properly flows from confronting and successfully negotiating the challenges you encountered at this very challenging place. Certainly I congratulate you on your achievement and thank your family members for their confidence in the College. Happily, statistics clearly indicate that your New College degree will enhance your earning power over your lifetime. But increasing your earning power is not the only -and perhaps not even the chief reason for attending a liberal arts college. No doubt most of you will do well in life, as have New College graduates who have gone before you. But the true measure of your New College education will reside in the multiple ways you bring your powers of discernment, critical thinking, and openness to human differences to bear on the communities in which you live and work. You will make a difference, not by being more acquisitive than the next man or woman, but by being more committed to the common good. As you have learned here, sometimes the common good requires open argument and clear-headed debate, rather than the silencing of honest differences through falsely placed deference or an exaggerated concern for politeness. I trust that New College has offered you a model for debate different from the one you grew up exposed to on cable TV, where the sheer entertainment value of polemics typically trumps a serious interest in a rational argumentative result. Our civil society badly needs the habits of mind that you have cultivated here. Share them generously and, whenever in doubt, think back on your New College teachers and consider how generous they were with their time, expertise, and willingness to help you. Mike Michalson, President

A DISTINGUISHED PAST AND PROMISING FUI1JRE 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. ew College attracted immediate attention for the nature and quality of its academic program. In 1967, when the fir t students were graduated, the College won accreditation. Soon graduates began to make their marks in chosen careers and in graduate and professional schools. Although the College pro pered academically, financial pressures threatened its very life in the early 1970s. After exploring various strategies, the College proposed to the Board of Regents of the State University ystem of Florida a novel plan that allowed the institution to become a freestanding college within the University of South Florida, sharing the campus with the University's regional academic program. Special action by the Florida Legislature enabled this unique partner:,hip to occur. ew College was continued through a combination of support from the State and annual grants from the New College Foundation. ew College has earned accolades from reviewers ranging from the editors of Money magazine to the site visit committee of the 'oulhern Association of Colleges and chools to the compilers of Barron's Guide to the Most Competitive Colleges. ew College's more than 3,000 graduates are making the1r mark a cholars, entrepreneur civic leaders, educator attorneys, phys1cians, artist journalists and in a host of other professions throughout Florida, the nation, and the world. In 2001, a new chapter opened in ew College's history when the Florida Legislature elevated ew College to independent membership, as New College of Florida, in the State t niversity System. The Legislature also formally designated New College a the tate's residential liberal arts honors college. ew College of Florida, with its own Board of Trustees and the continuing support of the ew College Foundation, is empowered as never before to take a leading, national role in public undergraduate honors education. Events, activities, programs, and facilities of New College of Horida are available to all wit bout regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, handicap, sexual orientation, or age as provided by law and in accordance with the College's respect for personal dignity.
