SUNY Delhi's award-winning activities and leadership programs boast over 75 percent participation in activities, intramurals, and community service with over 14 percent of those involved holding leadership positions. Delhi has been named one of the top five schools in the nation for student activities by Campus Activities Today magazine, and has earned the distinction of being named to the U.S. Presidential Higher Education Honor Roll for Community Service consecutively since 2006 when the Honor Roll began. Student activities and the opportunities for community service at Delhi consistently receive top ratings in the SUNY Student Opinion Survey.
SUNY Delhi provides a Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT) as an official record of a student's co-curricular activities, awards, accomplishments, and honors. As an official College document, the CCT can enhance a student's search for internships, graduate schools, and employment. According to a recent survey, 71 percent of employers preferred job applicants to include a CCT.
The Student Activities Office organizes over 60 clubs and organizations. Approximately 200 annual events and activities, from big-name entertainment to campus intramurals, offer students a variety of valuable and diverse opportunities to enrich their SUNY Delhi experience and education. Entertainment on campus is coordinated by the Student Programing Board with assistance from the Student Senate and many other recognized organizations. Live music, well-known comedians, guest DJs, cultural programing, guest speakers, and first-run movies are among the regular, on-campus entertainment offerings.

Delhi's diverse and highly successful athletics program supports 10 men’s and 11 women’s varsity sports. As a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), Delhi’s intercollegiate athletic teams consistently participate in and have won numerous championships in the conference, regional, and national levels. Delhi’s golf teams compete at the four-year collegiate level through their membership in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).
As an indication of Delhi’s education-first philosophy and the quality of our student athletes, individual athletes are regularly named to All-Conference, All-Region and All-American teams, both academically and athletically. SUNY Delhi’s dedication to regional and national participation grants athletes the opportunity to pursue their sports and academic careers at four-year colleges.

O'Connor Center for Community Engagement
Over 76 percent of SUNY Delhi students participate in community service. Opportunities for community service have received top ranking by students in the SUNY Student Opinion Survey, and over 24,000 logged community-service hours have placed SUNY Delhi on the U.S. Presidential Higher Education Honor Roll for Community Service consecutively since 2006 when the Honor Roll began. The College highly values community service and presents Community Service Awards at commencement for degree recipients who have documented substantial levels of community engagement.
Delhi is one of the few campuses to have a fully-dedicated, community engagement center. The O’Connor Center for Community Engagement excels at matching individual students, clubs, classes, and staff volunteers with local, national, and even global service opportunities. Particularly close bonds have been formed with the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, American Red Cross Blood Services, Habitat for Humanity, Heart of the Catskills Humane Society, and ARC of Delaware County. Students can test their strengths, explore special areas of personal or professional interest, and gain valuable résumé-building experience, all while helping others in need and building relationships with fellow students, faculty, and staff. Campus and Community Service Days bring the students, faculty, and staff of the College together, volunteering side by side to accomplish a wide variety of tasks that benefit the campus and extended communities.
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.
