With 139 clubs and organizations to choose from and a very active Student Government Association, our students are crazy-involved.

And you’ll never have to worry about not having something to do. We host more than 400 performances each year, plus a huge array of special events like comedy shows, author readings, art exhibits and fun events like casino night and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Keep track of it all through SUNY Potsdam Weekly!

The Barrington Student Union is the center of campus life, and is always abuzz with activity. In addition to housing the Dining Court, College Store, Union Market and mailroom, the Union is where you’ll find the offices of Campus Life, SGA, The Racquette and the WAIH radio station, plus resources like Venture Outdoors and spots to unwind, like Pete’s Place.

SUNY Potsdam also offers special opportunities to gain skills and enhance their educational experience through our student leadership programs.

If you’re interested in Greek Life, there are two recognized fraternities and seven sororities that all share common values of friendship, scholarship, community service and leadership.
