Campus Support for Your Organization
Cornell College has many offices that can help serve your student organization. Find out what they have to offer:
Office of Student Activities:
- The Student Activities Office is responsible for planning and assisting with many of the activities and entertainment for students on campus. This office assists with New Student Orientation, plans the student events for Homecoming, and organizes Family Weekend. In addition, student organizations can contact the Director of Student Activities for assistance in planning events or activities on campus. When bringing in performers or artists, student organizations should contact the Student Activities Director for help with contracts and logistics of the event.

- Student Senate Student Organization Resources
- The Student Organizations Committee assists Student Senate-recognized organizations by informing them of Senate policies and programs as well as reviewing student organizations' constitutions. This includes advising those organizations on making amendments to their respective constitutions and assisting in interpretation if necessary. For those groups that wish to petition Student Senate for recognition, the Student Organizations Committee reviews and advises those groups on constitutional drafting in accordance with Student Senate policy. Recognition of college student organizations by Student Senate allows those organizations the benefits of Senate-allocated funds, official recognition in college publications and reservation of college facilities for group use.

Counseling Center (Counseling Services):
- One of the Counseling Center's main services to the College is providing individual counseling for students who have mental health related concerns. We also provide consultations for individuals who are concerned about a student. We have a resource library of mental health information and can present outreach programs on a variety of topics (e.g., stress management, time management, healthy relationships).

Student Health Center:
- Cornell Student Health Service provides acute and chronic health care to students on campus. Health and wellness issues are addressed regularly as well. We are active in health education on campus, and often work with RA's, organizations, presidents, etc. in setting up programs of their choice. Examples of this include "Laughs, Latex and Lemonade" which we have done many times over recent years in the residence halls upon invitation from RA's. Also, we have spoken to WAG about menstruation (upon invitation from the president), and other groups about breast health, nutrition, relationships, CPR, etc. We are available to do any health programming that students would like more information about.

To achieve this goal, we provide programs and support services to explore interests or concerns related to diversity. The intercultural student groups sponsor activities and events throughout the year and their membership is open to all. The second floor of Stoner House features a classroom, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a study abroad library lounge with information about off-campus programs. A TV/VCR is available for class work or relaxing.
