Student Activities, University Services and Community Service

The College of Arts and Science offers students a wide variety of activities outside the classroom: curriculum-related clubs, special events, and service to the commu­nity and the University. Students participate in faculty meetings and departmental committees and sit as voting members of the University Senate.

The vigor of intellectual life at college after hours is found in curriculum-related clubs that embrace all academic disciplines. For example, the Classics Club is noted for guest lecturers, Greek and Latin reading groups, discussion groups on classical civili­zation, and productions of ancient tragedy and comedy in the original language and in English. Bus trips are organized by various clubs (such as the Art History, History, and Classics Clubs) to museums and private collections in other cities. Clubs associated with the sciences visit research laboratories, hospitals, and industrial plants. Students may become members of the Choral Arts Society, the NYU Concert Band, the NYU Jazz Ensembles, the NYU Orchestra, the NYU Woodwind Ensembles, the NYU Chamber Music Society, and Collegium Musicum.

The CAS Student Council sponsors other cocurricular activities. Students serve the community in various ways, volunteering time to settlement houses or tutoring high school students. In addition, a variety of activities is open to all students at Washington Square: student councils representing all undergraduate and graduate students; science and professional societies; political, religious, and cultural groups; fraternities; sororities; student publications, including the Washington Square News; and the radio station, WNYU-FM. For further information about all-University activities, contact the Center for Student Activities, Leadership, and Service, 212-998-4700, www.osa.nyu.edu.

Community Service
Every year, hundreds of students in the College devote their time and energy to community service. In addition to the satisfaction they receive in helping their neighbors, they also gain valuable work experience. Through NYU's Office of Civic Engagement, students volunteer with dozens of nonprofit organizations through­out New York City.

Community service provides an opportu­nity to address major social, health, hunger, and environmental issues. Through service, students enhance their leadership skills, find fulfillment in giving back something to the community, and build new relationships while learning more about themselves.

There are many ways to become involved in activities on and off campus. Students in the College collect canned goods, conduct toy drives, and distribute bag lunches to the homeless. They work in dropout-prevention programs that encourage high school students to stay in school. They renovate houses and make them livable again. Students in the Presidential Scholars Program participate in ongoing service projects such as the Dean's Service Honor Corps, the University Settlement House, the Door, and the Beacon House. Whether their involvement is with the sick, the poor, or those who simply need a helping hand, student volunteers give of themselves freely. And they all agree that they get back much more than they give.

To strengthen and further support community-service initiatives, the University sponsors a central Office of Civic Engagement. In addition, the President's Office sponsors a special C-Team for Service, involving over 250 students working as tutors and mentors for young people at sites in Greenwich Village and the Lower East Side. Regular meetings and social events are sponsored by the Office of the President. Members are invited to submit proposals for special projects where they can call on their own skills and talents. For more information, contact 212-998-2329.

Students selected for the Scholars Program in the College of Arts and Science have the opportunity to apply for the Dean's Service Honor Corps. The Honor Corps makes a special commitment to community service and assumes a leadership role in promoting service in the College. This group of qualified scholars works with the dean on a weekly community-service project.

Many student clubs and organizations, such as Asian Initiative and Fraternity and Sorority Life, sponsor special service projects and philanthropic events throughout the year. To find out more about becoming involved, contact the Office of Civic Engagement (212-998-2329) or Fraternity and Sorority Life (212-998-4710).
