New College of Florida students joined their peers from local colleges in downtown Sarasota to celebrate the beginning of a new school year during the Downtown Getdown Block Party. Hosted by the Cross College Alliance, the festival featured a DJ, games, food and other activities for students to get to know the downtown area and meet students from other campuses.

The Cross College Alliance connects Sarasota’s five universities — New College of Florida, Ringling College of Art and Design, State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota, The Ringling Museum (Florida State University) and the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee — through initiatives like access to shared academic courses and student engagement projects such as Downtown Getdown.


Located in Sarasota, New College of Florida has educated intellectually curious students for lives of great achievement since its founding in 1960. As the State of Florida’s designated honors college, New College provides an exceptional education that transforms students’ intellectual curiosity into personal accomplishment. The 110-acre campus on Sarasota Bay is home to more than 800 students and 80 full-time faculty engaged in interdisciplinary research and collaborative learning. New College offers nearly 40 areas of concentration for undergraduates and a master’s degree program in Data Science.
