Bard Student Activities

The Office of Student Activities supports the academic mission of the institution

by contributing to the social, cultural, and intellectual life of the College. We do so by providing Leadership Development opportunities and encouraging cocurricular involvement among students. We serve as a resource for the entire Bard Community by: organizing large-scale events, overseeing the planning and registration process for student-run events, advising Student Government and Student Clubs, managing most nonacademic spaces on campus, and collaborating with other offices, programs, and community members to enhance campus life at Bard. Our office also advocates for students by addressing their interests and requests in regards to student life.
