The New School, a private research university located in New York City, is one of the top 135 institutions of higher learning in the United States. University professors came together and founded The New School in 1919. Their aim was to create an institution where students could “seek an unbiased understanding of the existing order, its genesis, growth and present working.” The school’s motto is "To the Living Spirit.” Today, most of the campus is located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of NYC, and its library has nearly 2 million holdings. The New School is also involved with a number of other organizations worldwide including Parsons Paris, the India China Institute and the World Policy Institute. Notable alumni include fashion designer Marc Jacobs, actor Marlon Brando, playwright Tennessee Williams, actor Bradley Cooper, fashion designer Donna Karan, actor Jesse Eisenberg, fashion designer Anna Sui, filmmaker Kevin Smith and acclaimed Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. The school’s colors are white, black and Parsons red, its mascot is Gnarls the Narwhal and its teams are called the Narwhals. It is not officially with any sports organizations, but it does compete against NCAA Division III universities. Club sports offered include basketball, dance, cross-country, soccer and tennis.
