• Student Organizations
  • We encourage all degree-seeking students to get involved on campus by joining registered student organizations or by starting one of their own. It is a rewarding experience that allows students not only to build leadership skills but also to establish lasting friendships. Our current roster of organizations includes groups of pre-professional and academic interest; political action and advocacy; international interest; art, music, and performance; social and special interest; and faith-based, religious, and spiritual interest.  

    For a complete list of student organizations, visit NarwhalNation, our one-stop shop for student activities and involvement. 

    For questions about student organizations, please email studentorgs@newschool.edu

    Interested in supporting student organizations?

    Join the Student Activities Finance Committee (SAFC)! The SAFC is a student-run committee that allocates program and event funding to students and registered student organizations. The committee's goal is to support student-led programming that fulfills our social justice, academic, and community-building missions at The New School. The SAFC is an excellent resource for students and for registered student organizations hoping to expand their programming beyond their $500 base budget. Typically the SAFC funds events in the $50-$2,000 range. For very large events, student organizations should contact the University Student Senate.

    Go to the SAFC's NarwhalNation page to learn more about the committee's responsibilities and to become a member.
