Cayuga Community College recognizes that the educational experience in college should encompass more than classroom instruction. To satisfy this need for additional experiences to develop the entire person, Cayuga offers a wide variety of activities and services to complement academic preparation.
These activities and services are managed through the Faculty-Student Association in conjunction with the Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement, which is located in the Main Building. The following organizations and activities are sponsored by the Faculty-Student Association:
Student Activities Board (SAB)
Sponsors a variety of cocurricular activities and events for the College and surrounding community, including:
- Annual Holiday Festival Craft Fair
- Seminars on issues of concern to students (e.g., PEACE program, alcohol awareness)
- Cultural and performing arts program with performances by noted artists and groups
Student Government Organization (SGO)
The SGO serves as the voice of students’ concerns and suggestions, providing leadership and direction for students whether it be an individual student or club. SGO executive officers include a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and student trustee. All executive positions are elected posts. SGO also has student board members and the remaining student body is made up of student senators (comprised mostly of representatives of student clubs). SGO is responsible for distributing the budgets for student clubs.
More details about the SGO and the current slate of officers are available on the Student Government Organization page.

Issues are published and distributed on both campuses in Cayuga Collegian newspaper stands. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Harlequin Productions (Theatre)
