STUDENT LIFE AT HUNTER COLLEGE
Student life at Hunter is exceptionally vibrant. Students govern more than 100 clubs and organizations, compete in championship athletic events, contribute to four student publications, and participate in leadership programs. We help prepare our students to be life-long learners and leaders.
Hunter's comprehensive, competitive Athletics program includes 18 championship-winning athletic teams. The Hunter Hawks compete at the NCAA Division III level as a member of the CUNY Athletic Conference. They also provide a variety of recreational opportunities (such as fitness classes, activites, gyms, equipment and swimming pool) that contribute to the physical, social, and overall wellbeing of all members of the campus community.
A limited number of students have the opportunity to live in the Hunter College Residences. They have a unique opportunity to enrich their learning experiences by becoming involved in our Residence Life Community, which offers social, educational, and cultural programs designed to enhance learning and to promote positive relationships within the Residences and the community at large. Applicants are able to choose from three residences: Brookdale Campus, 92nd Street, and 97th Street, which offer a variety of floor plans and amenities to Hunter students.
The Children’s Learning Center at Hunter College is a quality childcare learning facility for the children of Hunter College students. We provide a rich, developmentally appropriate environment for children while their parents attend classes or perform other college-related work.
Published by the Division of Student Affairs, the Hunter Gatherer is a bi-weekly listing of events, activities and other items of interest for students and the Hunter community. Typical news items include jobs and internships, health screenings, workshops, scholarships, discounts on performances, advising schedules, orientations, pre-professional events, athletic events, library resources, and updates on college policies.
