Student Activities & Engagement

Student Activities

Georgian Court recognizes that experiences outside the classroom are important to the overall development of students and supports a strong cocurricular program to complement the instructional activities. Through the Office of Student Life, a full program of social, cultural, and recreational activities is planned in conjunction with students, classes, clubs, and campus organizations and implemented to enhance the classroom experience. Activities include trips, Broadway shows, sporting events, and other social and educational activities.

Student Organizations

Campus Activities Board (CAB)

The Campus Activities Board works to ensure that students enjoy campus life outside the classroom by bringing both entertainment and extracurricular educational opportunities to campus. The board is responsible for providing programs that enhance social interaction, awareness to diversity, and service to community. CAB promotes and supports student development, both individually and collectively, while embodying the Mercy core values. The CAB executive board is made up of the president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary, which are all offices held by students.

Student Government Association

Full-time, undergraduate matriculating students are eligible to be members of the Student Government Association (SGA). The SGA administers programs that foster the desire for excellence in every phase of student development. All students are encouraged to attend SGA open meetings to voice their concerns and offer suggestions for the continuous enhancement of campus life.
