MCNY offers numerous activities, resources and leadership opportunities that enhance student life outside of academics and the classroom. Getting involved in student activities will not only expand your horizons and expose you to new people and things; it will also strengthen your resume.
Student Government Association (SGA)
The Student Government Association gives the student body a voice. Through involvement in the decision-making process at the college, the SGA ensures that the interests and rights of all students are upheld. For more information, email Lisa Ingravera, Coordinator of Student Life or call her at 212-343-1234, ext. 5009.
Student Community Events & Workshops
Throughout the year, events and programming are offered that bring students together for fun, relaxation, new connections and community building. Some of the most popular events are Open Mics, Yoga & Mindfulness, Pizza & Game Nights and First Year Experience Welcome Week.
An ongoing workshop series brings students together to explore the power of goal-setting, stress management, creative time management, study skills and more.
Advocacy & Resource Sharing
Current students, alumni and community professionals offer powerful connections to resources and opportunities through panels, workshops and info sessions. This programming offers veteran resources, domestic violence support, mental health awareness and more.
MCNY offers a comprehensive support system for international students, including resources for housing, insurance, international student loans, cultural institutions, and an International Awareness Club. Special events and skills workshops geared towards addressing the unique needs of the international students are also provided.
Informal counseling is available to students on an individual basis. We are here to help you develop coping, planning and problem-solving skills. Students also have access to the Resource and Referral Guide, which is available in our office for assistance with clinical problems or issues including domestic violence and substance abuse. Our counselors can help you find formal counseling in the community including all extension centers.
