Reason 7: Student Life
START LIVING YOUR DREAM.
A World of Possibilities.
When you become a part of this community, you open the door to a world of possibilities and new experiences, like taking part in our annual Holi Festival or “festival of colors”, a Hindu celebration brought to campus by members of Utica College’s Asian Student Union.
Whether you’re starting a new tradition, organizing a club, listening to some first-rate performers, or running for student senate, there’s always a lot to do at Utica College.
A Diverse Community
At Utica, you’ll meet people from all over the country and all around the world. Our student body is very diverse, with many different ethnic, religious, and cultural communities coming together in a shared journey of learning and discovery.
Utica College’s Student Activities office and student-run Programming Board deliver a full calendar of campus events every semester. That includes live performances by everyone from Kanye West to Itzhak Perlman, readings by published authors and poets, talks by major political, cultural, and media figures, and more.

TWELVE GREAT REASONS:
A Welcoming Place
“I’ve always been really shy, and when I came to Utica, I was so afraid of not making any friends. But there are so many things to do on campus, and if you just get out of your room, you’ll meet so many people. Everyone here is really happy and welcoming, so I just fell in love with the college.”
