New York City is SVA's campus. When students are not in class or the studio, there are many ways to take advantage of all the City has to offer. Student Activities plays a crucial role in orienting new students to the City and the SVA campus, creating opportunities for students to meet and connect with one another. The office also offers students leadership experience through clubs and the Visual Arts Student Association (VASA). Making friends and creating social networks are key factors in a student's happiness and success at SVA.
The Student Activities office also provides students and alumni discounted - and sometimes free - tickets to movies, theater and sporting events as well as discounted gym memberships.
