The Office of Student Life strives to fulfill the College mission by enhancing each student's educational experience by providing extra- and co-curricular programs and activities, designed to assist in their personal and professional development. Our office seeks to foster the development of the whole student by identifying and nurturing his/her skill sets through involvement with student organizations and campus wide programming and through the adoption of best practices for engaged student success and student-centered strategies.


The Office of Student Life exemplifies a commitment to active learning and student leadership by engaging students in moral, cultural, social, and ethical co-curricular activities.


The Office of Student Life offers a wide array of cultural, educational, leadership and social activities to our students, faculty and staff. Getting involved in John Jay's student life is the quickest way for you to become a part of the College community, and to create your personal experience. Our office organizes programs and events, lectures, cultural presentations, leadership programs and social activities. These programs aim to enrich your experience and encourage you to develop your leadership abilities and express your talents. They allow you to build a strong connection with peers that have a diverse background and interests. These programs are supported by the student activity fee and managed by the Student Activities Association (Board of Directors) commonly referred to as the B-O-D.
