School of Divinity students cast their vote to decide the new School motto: "Quaerite et Invenietis"

New College Motto final votes

Over 400 staff and students cast their vote to decide the new motto for the New College Coat of Arms, and there was a clear winner!

We are proud to announce our new official motto is: "Quaerite et Invenietis (Seek and You Shall Find)". 

Thank you to all the students and friends of New College who took part and voted. A very special thank you to the two students who suggested the winning motto, Meg Bowles and Kaete Followwill.
