Memories of New College include whispers about Ham plates or a piano being played.
The overpass being a flurry of bikes, skateboards and bare feet. Sunset drawing students to its beauty. These memories that haunt these grounds are not just recent, but from years ago, just replaying themselves with different faces.
Fifty years doesn’t seem like a lot, and to some it is just brief history. Older buildings like Pei will probably be torn down in the future, replaced by more modern structures. Z Green will still hold music and festivals, and be a pain in the butt to cross during rainy season. We’ll always have the beautiful trees to climb on, not to mention the crazed squirrels that inhabit them.
Time has made NCF look different, but hasn’t changed its core values. Our thoughts refuse to be censored, leading to types of learning and change in oneself we never thought possible. That was what the first New College students were all about, what we currently are all about and what future students will be like.
New College students will always think “outside the box.” That is what makes us brilliantly unique and time can never change that.
