It’s not all about academics at New York Tech. Students can choose to be part of a rich campus life by being student leaders, volunteers or interns and participate in conferences and club activities. There is scope for extracurricular activity across multiple areas of interest such as the arts, entertainment, politics, public service, business and much more. Having a well-rounded extracurricular life also helps students learn a lot about the local culture.
New York Tech’s community service centers help students get involved as volunteers on behalf of community agencies, or as coordinators and the liaison person between New York Tech, clubs and off-campus organizations. On-campus roles, especially after the student’s first year, could be those of peer advisors, student tutors or orientation leaders.
There are also plenty of recreational options for students around and beyond campus. From live performance venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to a number of museums and galleries, everything is within a 15-minute walk from the campus. Those who prefer relaxed public spaces can head to the famous Central Park which is less than a five-minute walk, or choose from the other options that surround the area. Shopping and dining are also adequately catered for, with a whole range of options within walking distance of campus.
