I chose New College because it provided me with an academic infrastructure to study happiness. The flexibility and interdisciplinary nature of New College allow students like me to focus on the subject matter they care about without the traditional bureaucratic disciplinary barriers. I love New College’s focus on originality and student autonomy. The two most impactful benefits I’ve received in my New College experience are (1) a sense of ownership over my intellectual direction and (2) an integrative, multi-perspective problem-solving framework.
