Music education is what brings students to Berklee, but most Berklee students are interested in engaging in music and other activities outside of the classroom. From student clubs and student-run enterprises to student government and a wealth of opportunities throughout Boston, Berklee students are involved in extracurricular activities such as Berklee’s Internet radio station, the college’s business startup initiative, NCAA Division III sports, and an array of cultural organizations, just to name a few. At Berklee, students can truly be who they are. While music remains the primary focus, it is far from the only important, rich experience available to students at Berklee.
The Student Activities Center (SAC) seeks to create and maintain an inclusive, safe, and engaging space for all members of the Berklee community. We are dedicated to enriching the student experience by cultivating active leaders, community builders, musicians, and global citizens. We invite you to explore the ways in which you can create, contribute, and take the reigns of your Berklee experience while making the most of your time in Boston.
- Student Clubs
Whether you’re interested in advocating for animal rights or sharing your love of heavy metal, catching a game of ultimate Frisbee or tap dancing, there are a wide array of student clubs at Berklee – and if the club you seek doesn’t yet exist, maybe you should start it!

Do you want to make the Berklee experience even better for yourself and others? Berklee’s Student Government Association (SGA) works with the academic and administrative community at Berklee to ensure that the collective voice of the student body is heard.
