Clubs & Organizations at Utica College

Utica College believes strongly in the concept that a great deal of what students learn in college takes place outside of the classroom. Therefore, at UC, students, faculty, and staff members work side by side to provide a rich variety of social, cultural, and recreational activities. A student who participates fully in campus life can expect to be exposed to various ideas and issues, music and art forms, and styles of life. This is, of course, in addition to simply having a good time.

UC employs professional staff members to advise students in these matters, but the College faculty and staff members know that active student participation in the planning of extracurricular activities adds a vibrant quality to UC’s activities program and helps students develop and practice leadership, decision-making, and related skills.

According to the Utica College Student Senate Constitution, Article V, Section 9: Student Clubs and Organizations, each club and organization on campus is required to have at least five student members and one Faculty/Staff Advisor. They must have a constitution on file and they must submit a revised constitution to the Senate. Clubs and organizations are required to update their organization information to retain recognition status and to be eligible for funding.
