Our amazingly diverse student clubs and organizations are a very important part of student life at Binghamton. They sponsor cultural events and concerts, publish campus newspapers and magazines, offer countless volunteer opportunities and organize tons of free movies, open-mic nights and campus-wide talent shows.

Plus, get in the game with our incredible intramural and club sports program. Choose from highly competitive or just-for-fun leagues in everything from bowling and floor hockey to rugby and racquetball. Take a spinning class, perfect your swimming stroke or grab a few friends and join the BU Zoo student fan club for a men's or women's Division I basketball game. Join something and start having fun!

SUNY Broome campus life...

At SUNY Broome, getting involved on campus offers you an opportunity to enjoy college life, maintain academic balance, and develop valuable, life-time skills in communications, critical thinking, time management, organization, negotiation and more!

You're invited to participate in more than 50 student clubs, activities, sports and events. Because our campus only has freshmen and sophomores, you can quickly take on leadership roles in the clubs. Our weekly, daytime "Common Hour" offers lectures, concerts and film screenings. As a SUNY Broome student, you'll have free access to open gym time for shooting hoops, the weight room, the fitness center, and free skating at our impressive, on-campus ice center. SUNY Broome students also get involved in our local community by volunteering; students volunteered with 26 different organizations this past year.

If you are outspoken and outgoing, then join a political forum, act in a play, sing in a music group or share your voice in student activities, government and public service by running for a SUNY Broome Student Assembly office. Students elected to serve as part of the SA discuss issues concerning campus life, review policies, and sit on college committees with faculty and staff who make recommendations to the college administration. One SA student even serves as Student Trustee on the SUNY Broome Board of Trustees and votes on all campus policies. A new Student Senate is elected each fall semester. Senators provide input on club activities, social events, and programming. Get more information>
