Trips and tours of the New Rochelle College
Free trips and tours outside the territory of the university are provided for all students. All this is sponsored by the association of pupils, including the Blue Angels teams. Due to the proximity of New Rochelle to New York, most of the interesting trips are aimed at exploring Manhattan.
Here, pupils, freshmen who have not seen the city are introduced to everything that the city has to offer. The pedagogical staff of the New Rochelle is constantly interested in the opinion of pupils and is invited by the children themselves to make suggestions about future trips and tours outside the territory of the college. So they make it clear to students that when they enter this university, they all become one family.
Some of the most frequent trips are Broadway shows and musicals. Excursions to New York museums, Madame Tussauds wax museum, New Rochelle’s haunted house, Middle Ages in New Jersey. Nobody imposes anything on students, thereby making it clear that they can always make their own suggestions and adjustments, new holidays aimed at the culture and development of the community of the university.
