Student Association of SUNYIT

The Student Association of SUNYIT is a student-operated organization which serves and represents the students of SUNYIT, organizing and sponsoring a variety of campus events and entertainment. Additionally, the Student Association communicates student concerns to campus administrators. Students speak freely in the SA Forums.[2]

The Student Association oversees numerous student-run organizations, such as the Campus Activities Board, Club Funding Board, Wildcat Media television/radio station, Factory Times newspaper, and Genesis yearbook. The Snowflake newsletter was another organization that was overseen by SA, but is currently not running due to a lack of staffing.

Alumni Association

The Alumni Association of SUNYIT has been actively engaged in supporting the college since its establishment in 1976 and incorporation in 1987. It is led by an all-volunteer board that oversees all Association activities which are entirely funded through three primary revenue sources: alumni dues, program revenues, and event fees. In 2005-06 the Alumni Association worked to strengthen ties with future alumni though a number of ventures with the Student Association (formerly URSA), including the establishment of “Bridge Crossing,” a ceremony welcoming new students and introducing them to both associations, and the co-sponsorship of Fall Fest 2006 comprised of 17 activities in 27 hours for alumni and current students and their families. For 2005-06 the Alumni Association sponsored a matrix of experimental programs that included four events in cities along the NYS Thruway, alumni-student-faculty and recruitment events through the School of Business, a 1970s-80s “Globe Mill Group” Reunion to kick off SUNYIT’s 40th anniversary celebration, Send-off/Alumni Welcome for graduating students and alumni, and tie-ins with all-SUNY events in other states

The Alumni Association works cooperatively throughout the year with the Athletics Office, with recent activities including the sponsorship of a Wildcat tournament tailgate, post-alumni game gatherings, and a joint Alumni Association Awards & Hall of Fame event. In 2005-06 the Alumni Association awarded four grants to student clubs and organizations as part of its new ExperienceIT™ program to reconnect alumni with current students. It also endowed an Alumni Association Student Scholarship that was awarded for the first time in fall 2005 to the child of an alumnus, and through 2006 the board worked toward having a room on campus named in honor of all alumni with all funds raised going to the scholarship fund.
