Life at Potsdam

With 139 student clubs and organizations, plus countless activities, you and the friends you’ll make at SUNY Potsdam will have plenty to keep you busy.

Get Involved

An eclectic community where people genuinely care for and about each other.

When you’re a uniquely creative school comprised of roughly 3,700 students in a quiet, secluded town New York’s North Country, you make your own fun. And you always support your friends.

Life outside the classroom at SUNY Potsdam blends three elements:

  • The stunning (and often snow-covered) natural beauty of the surrounding area
  • A tight-knit community of adventurous students who passionately explore their interests together
  • Enduring support from SUNY Potsdam’s extended family

No matter what you’re into, you’ll have a chance to explore it here, and make new lifelong friends along the way.

SUNY Potsdam promotes extraordinary student life in many ways:

“Coming to SUNY Potsdam is probably the best decision I’ve ever made. This is where I’m meant to be.”
