Student Life

The Capital of Discovery


Our passion for advancing humanity through science and medicine is unwavering. It's an enthusiasm that extends through every club, class, lab, and local volunteer project. And it's what binds us - as peers, neighbors, and future colleagues. 

This community setting is enhanced by a broad range of activities to help balance life inside and outside of the classroom. Play sports, join one of more than two dozen clubs and organizations, or stop by our dining hall for a treat.

Step off the campus and head down to Lark Street, home to an eclectic mix of food and fashion. Walk a little further, and you can see a show at the Times Union Center or Palace Theater.  It's all waiting for you!
