Campus Profile:

The University at Albany Student Association (SA) is the recognized undergraduate student government on campus which was officially established in 1923 and has been operating in its current form since 1977. SA exists in order to provide and foster opportunities beyond those offered in the formal curriculum. SA is representative of, and responsible to, all student activity fee paying students.
SA is funded by the student activity fee that students pay each semester. SA provides concerts, speakers, comedy shows, multicultural and gender programming, funds more than 200+ student groups, organizations, Student Legal Services, and Dippikill which is an 847 acre wilderness retreat complete with cabins, campsites and a pond located in the heart of the Adirondacks. In addition, SA represents the interests of the student body to the faculty, administration, and government.
The SA works similar to the United States government, with three branches, an Executive Branch (or E-Board), Legislative branch (SA Senate), and a Judicial branch (SA Supreme Court). SA also has a another arm of government, the Board of Finance. Additionally, the SA employs a number of staff who pride themselves on working with the elected and appointed officers, group leaders, University community, and community-at-large to ensure that not only the day-to-day operations are accomplished, but also that SA advocates for students and provides a structure in which students can advocate. SA strives to include and accept a diverse community and is committed to enriching the student experience with recreation, education and fun!

Campus Profile:
The purpose of the SUNY Potsdam Student Government Association is to promote the educational well-being of its membership through the recognition of academic, cultural, recreational, social, and athletic programs. The Association also serves as the representative voice of the student body in all college affairs on the SUNY Potsdam campus.

Founded in 1816 as the St. Lawrence Academy, SUNY Potsdam has evolved through the years to become one of the nation’s premier public liberal arts colleges.

Our 4,200 students major in both professional and traditional arts and science degree programs, all of which have been infused with a liberal arts foundation to ensure Potsdam graduates are prepared to enter and succeed in an ever changing economy.

Our additional designation as one of SUNY’s three arts campuses means that all students, regardless of their academic discipline, have opportunities to enjoy the nearly 300 musical, theatrical, dance, and visual arts events held annually on campus. The Crane School of Music has a well-deserved international reputation, while the completion and dedication of a new state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center later this year will further enhance our arts offerings and foster unique interdisciplinary experiences for students and visitors alike.

One hallmark of a SUNY Potsdam education is the opportunity for students to work closely with faculty on research projects. In fact, Potsdam is nearing completion of a 5-year Title III grant focused entirely on undergraduate student research, which has helped make the campus a national leader in this area.

And, of course, our location in the North Country, at the edge of the Adirondack Park and less than two hours from Ottawa and Montreal, provides unique opportunities for field trips, curricular enrichment, and student leisure activities.

As SUNY Potsdam nears its bicentennial celebration, it proudly continues its long tradition of educational excellence.

A dramatic trajectory of growth has turned what was once a small teacher preparation college into an internationally recognized research institution that is changing the world.

Stony Brook’s reach extends from its 1,039-acre campus on Long Island’s North Shore–encompassing the main academic areas, an 8,300-seat stadium and sports complex and Stony Brook Medicine–to Stony Brook Manhattan, a Research and Development Park, four business incubators including one at Calverton, New York, and the Stony Brook Southampton campus on Long Island’s East End. Stony Brook also co-manages Brookhaven National Laboratory, joining Princeton, the University of Chicago, Stanford, and the University of California on the list of major institutions involved in a research collaboration with a national lab. And Stony Brook is still growing. To the students, the scholars, the health professionals, the entrepreneurs and all the valued members who make up the vibrant Stony Brook community, this is a not only a great local and national university, but one that is making an impact on a global scale.
