The Macaulay Experience

Student life is an important part of the Macaulay Honors College experience. CSI’s small group of MHC students are a close-knit, active group. In addition, they are part of the larger Macaulay community, and they participate in academic, professional, and social events and organizations with Scholars from the seven other campuses. Macaulay students see themselves as part of their campuses, the city, and the world.

Please take a look at the many student life opportunities we offer, from study abroad to internshipsleadership and community servicecultural events, and special university events

Timothy Sweeney, Math Major and Captain of the CSI Men's Swimming Team

Timothy SweeneyThe following equation sums up Tim Sweeney’s experience at the College of Staten Island (CSI): Macaulay Honors College Student + Captain of the CSI Men’s Swimming and Diving Team + Mathematics Major = One Amazing Student. Leading his team to three CUNYAC Championships in a row, Sweeney ’17, who is also member of the Student Athletics Advisory Committee (SAAC), advises his peers not to let school work add up.

“Stay on top of your work. College is a great opportunity to have fun but the amount of work can pile up quickly. Complete your work piece by piece, without letting it get out of hand,” urges Sweeney, a 20-year-old graduate of St. Peter’s High School.

Sweeney and his team recently traveled to Stuart, FL for a week-long training trip of two-a-day swim practices and dry-land workouts, where the athletes could focus on training without any distractions. Sweeney hopes to represent CSI at the 2017 NCAA Division III Swimming Championships this March. More >>
