Student Life

Student Organizations


Student organizations bring students together to explore, refine and share extracurricular passions and interests.

Student organizations serve under The King’s Council. The King’s Council, comprised of the 10 House Presidents, the Student Body President and his/her cabinet members, exists to shape the campus culture and empower student-driven community.

While the following student organizations are officially recognized by The King’s College – New York City, the views and opinions expressed by these organizations do not necessarily reflect those of the College.
