The New School Athletics & Recreation offers many opportunities for students to become physically active and socially engaged while creating community across the university.

Programs and events are offered to students at all levels of experience, ability, knowledge, and interest.

We also provide leadership and professional development to our student staff.

What we stand for

Throughout the academic year, the department hosts weekly group fitness programs, intramural team sports, outdoor activities, and special events. In addition, The New School now offers three competitive athletic teams: Men’s basketball, and Women’s and Men’s cross country track teams. Through participation in recreational activities and intramural and interscholastic sports, students develop important skills such as teamwork, time management, and networking. Note: many events are also open to New School faculty and staff.

Our goals in brief:

Promote mental and physical fitness
Strengthen campus community
Develop leadership skills
