Student Life

A connected community pursuing academic excellence

Education Together

At New Saint Andrews, education happens within a tight-knit group of friends, church communities, and student clubs. Our pursuit of academic excellence means the education is rigorous.

The Halls of NSA

NSA implemented a three-hall system a few years ago which created a stronger student body and quickly became an integral part of the college culture. NSA groups undergraduate students into three halls so they interact and work more closely with each other. The halls—Jericho, Ashdown, and Malta—each have administration positions which allow our students to develop and practice leaderships skills.

New Saint Andrews nurtures a connected community. Meaning you won’t get lost in the masses like other colleges.

Living in Real Community

Our thoughtful alternative to dorms

New Saint Andrews students live and mature within a greater context of real community. Students can board with church families, rent houses from community members, or live together in apartments. We consciously chose a different path from the dorm model, because we believe young men and women should gain stature and independence in a setting that reflects real life after college.

Professors don’t just instruct students, they mentor them.

14:1 student/faculty ratio

Mentors for life

You will hear our students say they do not take classes, they take professors—students and faculty develop close academic relationships. The same is true for personal relationships between faculty and students, because at New Saint Andrews, we intentionally keep our student to faculty ratio small. Maintaining a connected and supportive community is a high priority for the college.

Clubs & Activities

Civics Club

Civics Club serves as a segue between college life and civic life. At our meetings, we seek to understand how local government functions. What is the difference between city and county government? What can you do in your community to make a difference? At NSA’s Civics Club, we explore various answers to these questions. Each year, we host an open candidate forum in Moscow for city or state candidates. Join us and discover how you can be a leader who shapes civic culture under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Students for the Relief of the Oppressed

In conjunction with local Trinity Reformed Church, New Saint Andrews students have been raising money and awareness for the oppressed church in the states and abroad. Their fundraising includes charity races, community services, balls, and dinners. You can find out more about Students for the Relief of the Oppressed on their official Facebook page.

Rugby is a long held tradition at New Saint Andrews College. An annual custom is the pumpkin rugby match, where teams celebrate the spirit of fall and the Reformation by using pumpkins instead of rugby balls. To get more information on rugby, you can contact us directly.

Winter is volleyball season for the women of New Saint Andrews College. Coached by fellow students, volleyball is a regular social event for the college to come and watch the games and the final tournament. To get more information on volleyball, you can contact us directly.
