History

Binghamton was established in 1946 as Triple Cities College to serve the needs of local veterans returning from World War II. Established in Endicott, New York, the college was a branch of Syracuse University. Originally, Triple Cities College offered local students the first two years of their education, while the following two were spent at Syracuse University, but the inception of the college is dated at 1946 when students could first earn their degree entirely in the Binghamton branch. When the college split from Syracuse and became incorporated into the State University of New York (SUNY) in 1950, it was renamed Harpur College, in honor of Robert Harpur, a Colonial teacher and pioneer who settled in the Binghamton area. Of the four University Centers (Stony Brook, Albany, Buffalo and Binghamton), Binghamton was the first to join SUNY.

He donated land at and around the original IBM site in Endicott, NY, where the school called home for just a few years. The campus broke ground at its current location in Vestal, NY, in 1954.

Student Association and Organizations

The Student Association[27], also known as the SA, bills itself as "an all encompassing organization that every single student is a member of as soon as they pay their tuition," and functions as Binghamton's student government.[28] Fashioning itself after the United States federal government, the Student Association is composed of independent executive, legislative, and judicial branches, with members of the executive and legislative branches elected by popular vote of the student body. Members of the judiciary, known as the Judicial Board, are nominated by the Student Association president and confirmed by the Student Assembly, the legislative branch. Members of the Student Assembly, the legislative branch, are elected by the different communities, with off campus students falling into one off campus community. The association is funded by a mandatory activity fee which must be approved by regular student referendums.


The Student Association retains the sole right to charter and recognize groups on campus, other than social fraternities and sororities. Currently, the SA recognizes approximately 160 student organizations.[29]


Student groups provide a wide range of services, and many are entirely student-run with no faculty supervision or university funding, though Student Association chartered groups are funded through the mandatory student activity fee and disbursed in a yearly budget process developed by the SA Financial Council and approved by the Student Assembly. Student groups must be chartered by the Student Association in order to be able to use university facilities and advertise through university information media. There are also more than forty fraternities and sororities chartered on campus
