The Office of Student Activities (OSA)

The Office of Student Activities (OSA) plans and coordinates extracurricular educational, cultural, and social programs to enhance the college experience of BMCC students.

The OSA also oversees the registration of all student clubs, assigns classrooms for clubs to meet during club hours on Wednesdays, and assists in the production of club events.

Student Clubs and Organizations

Clubs offer the opportunity for students to share, explore and work together in an ‘out of classroom’ setting where talents and skills can be developed both for the group and for the individual.
Student clubs and organizations are chartered by the Student Government Association (SGA) to serve the diverse needs and interests of our students. Participation in student clubs is key to forming friendships, preparing for a career, as well as, developing leadership and socialization skills. BMCC clubs present speakers, films, workshops and events for the entire college community. Club members also do volunteer work and participate in community service programs.

The Office of Student Activities is involved in student life throughout the year, starting with Registration in the Fall Semester, continued activities throughout the Winter Recess and the Spring Semester, coordinating commencement procedures and the Summer Program, and assisting students as they make leadership and Student Government Transitions.

Student Activities and SGA

The Office of Student Activities also works in conjunction with the Student Government Association (SGA). The SGA consists of 19 members comprised of four officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) and 15 senators. The BMCC student body elects to SGA hold office for one year, from July 1 though June 30.

SGA members sit on standing committees of the Academic Senate and College Council, The BMCC Association, Inc., the BMCC Auxiliary Enterprise Corp., the Media Board, and the Early Childhood Center, and all other sub-committees representing college life.
SGA members meet regularly with the VP of Student Affairs to discuss student needs and concerns and to maintain open lines of communication among the student body, the faculty and the college administration.
