The College Community

Institutional Diversity

The staff of the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is dedicated to creating and supporting an environment that promotes diversity in all forms. The college carries out this initiative through international coffee hours, cultural fairs, International Education Week activities, student clubs and organizations, and much more.

Each year the Sheila Johnson Institute (SJI) awards grants to faculty and staff that fund opportunities for students who promote leadership and diversity. SJI also provides matching funds for the Empire State Diversity Honors Scholarship Program, CSTEP, STEP, and EOP, all of which benefit students from historically underrepresented backgrounds.

Student Life

The SUNY Morrisville community is representative of many ages, backgrounds, cultures and experiences. The college welcomes and encourages diversity, learning and open communication. A wide range of activities and services for residential and commuter students complement and enhance the educational experience.

Residence Life

As a college of agriculture and technology, SUNY Morrisville is a unique educational institution combining technical and academic offerings in a residential campus setting. Residence Life at SUNY Morrisville provides a comfortable living environment with a range of resident halls including double rooms, suites, apartments with full kitchens, single rooms and quiet-study halls. Residence halls provide an opportunity for autonomy and affiliation in a supportive environment and serve as centers for organized social, cultural and educational activities.

Your Student Activities Office offers a variety of academic. cultural, recreational and social programs, events and opportunities for students to participate in at SUNY Morrisville. The office encourages all students, new and returning, to get involved in clubs and organization and activities, there is something for everyone!

The staff is ready to assist and advise students in many areas. Student Activities produces the Co-Curricular Transcripts, and develops and/ or participates in organizing many of the programs and services that occur throughout the school year, including Welcome Weekend and Mustang Weekend.

The Student Activities Office offers students the opportunity to enhance or start their Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT). Students that participate in worthwhile campus or off-campus activities may complete a CCT that can serve as a valuable supplement to your college transcript for scholarships, awards, and future job searches. The CCT is an official record that is verified by either an advisor or supervisor listing the various developmental activities outside the classroom. Activities that can be put on your CCT are leadership development, professional and educational development, awards, honors and recognitions, student organizations, club and activity participation, community service, intercollegiate athletics and peer advising. 

Student Government Organization

The Student Government Organization (SGO) is an integral part of Student Activities at SUNY Morrisville, serving the entire student body. SGO’s goals are to promote the general welfare of the student body, to stimulate interest in and support activities contributing to cultural, social, educational and physical improvement, and to establish a just college community.

SGO supports dozens of programs and events on campus including the Music and Theatre Departments, Arcadian student yearbook, WCVM Media, Campus Activities Board (CAB), and Open Recreation in STUAC and Hamilton Hall.

SGO funds many educational and social activities during the year such as dances, intramurals, and performers. They achieve this with funds gathered through the Mandatory Student Activity Fee. SGO maintains an off-campus housing list as an alternative to living in the residence halls.

Get involved with SGO and help make your experience here at SUNY Morrisville successful and memorable.

Athletics

Athletics at SUNY Morrisville are as much a part of college as academics. We believe the total college experience should be a balance of activities both in and out of the classroom. We offer the opportunity for students to get involved in a variety of intercollegiate and intramural activities.

Morrisville is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III and administers 17 intercollegiate athletic teams. 

The student-athletes who wear green and white for the Morrisville Mustangs are part of a proud tradition of team competition and enjoy a school spirit that fosters a dedicated following, and an equal commitment to a tradition of academic and athletic excellence.
