Student life at Hunter is enriched by a wide array of organizations and clubs — approximately 130 in number — which provide opportunities for participation in academic, political, recreational, ethnic, religious and social activities. Student organizations sponsor events and activities, which include hosting guest speakers, concerts, movies, attending conferences, assisting charities and social gatherings. All student clubs and publications are administered by the membership through their elected officers. Students are encouraged to join and become active in at least one organization so they have an opportunity to meet other students and develop interpersonal, leadership and managerial skills.
The Office of Student Activities, a unit of the Office of Student Affairs, encourages student involvement and supports clubs and organizations on campus by conducting a series of student leadership colloquia and other leadership development workshops, facilitating club events and opening doors to community service opportunities.
The SA Office is also a resource for free and discount tickets to theater, concerts and other performances. A complete listing of student organizations and additional information regarding student activities can be obtained by visiting the Office of Student Activities, Room C001 Hunter North or call (212) 772-4908.
