College is more than a place to earn a degree. It’s a community where you can make a difference, find your voice, discover interests, and develop new strengths. To make the most of your college years, get involved beyond the classroom. The confidence and experience you’ll gain can make a world of difference to your future.
Student Programming Association
The Student Programming Association (SPA) is where the fun begins on campus. As a member of SPA, you'll help plan and organize a full calendar of large and small social events, entertainment, lectures, and service projects that bring enjoyment, inspiration, and connection to the student community.
Become an Orientation Leader and help incoming students get a good start on campus. Welcome them to campus when they arrive, help familiarize them with campus life, and engage with them in group activities throughout the year. You can also work one-on-one as a First-Year Experience Mentor, helping a new student make a successful transition to college both academically and socially.

Joining the team at the Advising and Enrichment Center as a Peer Advisor is a great option for upperclassmen with good interpersonal skills and an affinity for details and strategic planning. You’ll answer students’ questions and help them navigate matters related to advisement and registration, including explaining degree requirements, using online tools such as NYITConnect, and planning their coursework.
Have you ever thought about holding public office? Do you have a concern for the greater good? Do you like the idea of being an agent for change? Then a place on the executive board or legislative senate of the Student Government Association (SGA) is the place for you. The SGA represents the voice of the student body, advocating for improvements to campus life at every level. You will have a chance to build strong relationships with key administrators on campus as well as be a part of the funding process of clubs and organizations on campus!
Do you excel in an academic area others might find difficult? Do you have a passion for your subject and the patience to pass your knowlege along? Are you reliable and find it rewarding to help others succeed? Then you’d be a great addition to the Learning Center on your campus as a student tutor.
NYIT Community Service Centers (CSC) are the hub of the university’s commitment to social responsibility. They can help you get involved as a volunteer on campus or with community agencies, or you can become a regular CSC project coordinator, acting as an ambassador and liaison between NYIT, clubs and organizations, and off-campus organizations and constituencies.
