Student Activities at Macaulay
As a student at CUNY, you will have a wide range of opportunities to participate in activities that serve your academic, professional, and social interests. As a University Scholar, you have a dual identity--as a student at your home college and as a Macaulay Honors College student. One of the best ways to strengthen your Macaulay identity is to take advantage of activities specifically organized for the Macaulay community. We encourage you to join a student group like the Macaulay Scholars Council, attend events like the Dean's Dinners or Executive in Residence programs, study at the Macaulay building, chat in the Commons at the Macaulay building, visit a museum with your Cultural Passport. The possibilities abound. Feel free to learn more about these activities through links on the left.
Macaulay Scholars Council
More than just a student government body, the Macaulay Honors Council is an important and influential voice of the Macaulay student body at CUNY, helping to foster the essential dual identity every University Scholar bears. The group is led by four representatives from each of the eight campuses, but all are welcome to participate and contribute. The Council's mission is to promote an informed and involved Macaulay student body, building cross-campus community through sponsorship of various activities and providing counsel to the Macaulay administration. Macaulay students are among the most involved students in the country, and the Macaulay Honors Council is an excellent way to channel that energy for the good of all University Scholars, and CUNY as a whole.

Performing original arrangements of songs from an array of genres, the Triplets have competed twice in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) and have heralded awards for Outstanding Vocal Percussion and Outstanding Solo Performance. The Triplets host biannual concerts in the Cabaret of the Macaulay building, but have also performed at Alice Tully Hall and Avery Fischer Hall at Lincoln Center; Carnegie Hall; Binghamton University; Rutgers University; Muhlenberg College; the Gerald Lynch Theater at John Jay; and New York University.
