Student Activities

The Office of Student Activities, located on the second floor of the Farrell Hall Student Union Building, organizes a wide variety of exciting extracurricular activities both on and off campus, from big-name entertainment to campus intramurals. This Office ensures students every opportunity to be active and have fun while attending SUNY Delhi and offers a wide variety of learning experiences outside the classroom.

Entertainment on campus is coordinated by the Student Programming Board, with assistance from the Student Senate, Greek organizations, and many other recognized organizations. Live music, well-known comedians, guest DJs, cultural programming, speakers, and first-run movies are among the regular entertainment offerings on campus. Recent performers have included Sum 41, Rusted Root, Caffeine, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Beanie Man, Fat Joe, Al Yankovic, and comedians Jay Mohr, Dane Cook, Charlie Murphy, Carrot Top, and Jim Breuer.

There is a lot happening on the SUNY Delhi campus when it comes to activities. The campus has provided the background for recent videos shot by Sum 41 and Caffeine, for which the College was featured on the MTV Spring Tour Documentary Show.

SUNY Delhi was recently named one of the top five schools in the nation for student activities by Campus Activities Today magazine.

Intramurals: Intramural programs, funded by the Student Senate, are offered for men and women in basketball (spring), bowling (fall), indoor soccer (fall), flag football (fall), volleyball (fall), and softball (spring). Student interest has led to the addition of karate, step aerobics, spin class, dance, and non-contact boxing. The Intramural Council also sponsors off-campus trips, and students wishing to participate must register at the Student Activities Office in Farrell Hall. Questions regarding intramurals can be directed to the Assistant Director of Athletics in the Sports and Recreation Complex (Clark Field House).

Greek Life

Fraternities and sororities play an active role on the SUNY Delhi campus. Today, as in the past, these Greek organizations are dedicated to the ideals of scholarship, leadership, friendship, loyalty, and community service. SUNY Delhi is committed to the ideal of a Greek system that supports and enhances the co-curricular educational mission by fostering the true meaning of fraternal values and principles. The College is actively involved in a positive relationship with these organizations through the Greek Council, which is made up of representatives from all of the recognized fraternities and sororities.

Students are free to explore joining a fraternity or sorority after they meet the requirements set by the College and Greek Council for membership. The pledging process traditionally takes place during both fall and spring semesters. Hazing in any form is not permitted and will not be tolerated. Students seeking to join a Greek organization are to be treated with respect and dignity at all times.

Greek letter organizations currently recognized by the Greek Council and the College are:

Fraternities

Campus Ministry

The Campus Ministry provides each student with the opportunity to celebrate his or her faith while attending SUNY Delhi. The Delhi College Interfaith Council (DCIC), a Student Senate-funded club, is a lively group of students of different religious backgrounds and diverse beliefs who come together for fellowship, to talk about life's issues and about God, and to have fun. They also sponsor and participate in many different programs and activities, including Bible studies, parties, holiday worship services, retreats, service projects, concerts, and trips. A Campus Minister is available to all students for discussions, guidance, and activities.

Commuter Student Services

The Commuter Lounge, located on the main floor of the Farrell Hall Student Union, is a special place that has been established to meet the unique needs of commuting students. This multi-purpose room can be used for studying, watching television, relaxing between classes, visiting, or eating.

Community Service

O'Connor Center for Community Engagement

Established in January 1999, the O'Connor Center for Community Engagement provides a clearinghouse for students, faculty, and staff to be matched with local service needs and opportunities. Center staff also facilitate community service by arranging for transportation and providing volunteer orientation and training, as well as feedback on completed service projects.

While many students become involved in community service through clubs or classes, individuals are also welcome to use the O'Connor Center's services. Students benefit through exploring a possible major or career choice, by gaining experience and/or references for future employment, through being able to apply theoretical knowledge to practical experience, and by the personal satisfaction experienced in helping others.

The Center staff includes student coordinators who work closely with other student leaders to promote volunteerism within the Delhi community. Each spring the Center organizes a Campus and Community Service Day involving students, faculty, staff, and community members working together in a variety of projects. The Center promotes service learning as part of the SUNY Delhi experience through improved coordination and enhancement of volunteer experiences.

The OCCS is located in 236 Farrell Hall and can be contacted at 607-746-4781.

Intercollegiate Athletics

Delhi offers a diverse and highly successful intercollegiate athletics program supporting 10 men's and 10 women's varsity sports. As a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), Delhi's intercollegiate teams consistently participate in conference, regional, and national championships in the sports in which they qualify.

All other sports remain in the NJCAA.

Delhi varsity athletes are consistently named to All-Region, All-Conference, and All-American teams both academically and athletically. With the College's dedication to regional and national participation, opportunities for athletes to pursue their sports and academic careers at four-year colleges may be enhanced.
