Activities are as Diverse as our Student Body

Choose from a variety of activities and events that will keep you engaged throughout the year. 

Get involved. Countless ways to make your mark outside of the classroom and enrich your graduate experience. Attend a guest lecture, volunteer on-campus or within the community, partake in a concert or art exhibit, join or start your own student club, and more. 

Show your spirit. Division III athletics include 12 men's and women's sports ranging from basketball to soccer to volleyball. Come to a game and cheer on the Gothic Knights!

Grab a bite. Dunkin' Donuts, Subway and the Student Union Cafe are all great places to meet up with friends and faculty for a tasty lunch or a quick coffee break.

Get your heart pumping. John J. Moore Athletics and Fitness Center features a 25-yard pool and sauna. Recreational and intramural programs include aqua golf, relays and even inner-tube water polo.

Make yourself at home. Three residence halls on our Jersey City campus include both suite-style and apartment-style living. You could even be one of the first to stay in our brand new student residence hall this fall!
