Living/Learning

Newing sponsors the Binghamton University Scholars Program, the COIN initiative and special courses reserved for Newing residents.

Binghamton University Scholars Program

Each year, Binghamton University invites 100 outstanding incoming freshmen to join the Binghamton University Scholars Program, a selective all-University four-year honors program for students of exceptional merit. For the first year, all scholars live in Endicott or Broome Hall. More information on this program can be found on the Scholars website.

COIN

COIN is an initiative intended to recognize individuals who have displayed one or more of Newing's four core principles: Civility, Ownership, Inclusion and Newing. To nominate a Newing Resident for COIN, fill out this form.

Civility: Actions in our community affect more than ourselves. As Newing College residents, we strive to be courteous, polite, tolerant and respectful to our neighbors.

Ownership: We want our community to have a lasting legacy we can be proud of. As residents, we strive to be responsible citizens invested in Newing College's past, present and future.

Inclusion: Neighbors that come from a variety of places and backgrounds strengthen our community. We strive to promote a welcoming environment in Newing College that celebrates individual views and values.

Newing: Promoting pride in being a Newing resident!

Newing Leadership Program CDCI 395

The Newing Leadership Course combines a classroom experience (2 credits) with an internship that involves participation in area-wide traditions, events and community service. Course participants must live in Newing College. Approved participants will be automatically enrolled in the course.

This course/internship is designed to help break down the concept of leadership into its core components so that students can identify, analyze and develop the skills and attributes necessary to be an effective leader. Participants will complete 60 hours of service-learning, in addition to weekly class attendance.
