Clubs & Organizations

Are you looking for other people who share your interests?
Join an on-campus club or organization! Learning isn't just about classes and tests. It's also about developing new interests and diving deeper into existing ones. Whether you want to learn more about chess, write for the campus paper, or perform for your friends, you'll find a club on campus! If you don't find a club for you, start one!

If you are interested in joining a club or organization or starting a new club, contact:

Student Life, First Level, Commons, M202
Student Association, Lower Level, Commons, M103

To start (or restart) a club, there are 3 simple steps:

  1. Find at least 3 members who share your interest in being part of your club.
  2. Talk with any SUNY Corning Community College faculty or staff who is interested in being an Adviser to your club.
  3. Register your club with your club's mission statement and officer & Adviser names.

All clubs and organizations are required to follow specific procedures set forth by the Student Association. Those procedures are available in our "How To" Book. Club and Organization Executive Board Officers are required to attend a "How To" Session and a training on Sexual Violence to become active clubs.
