BSA Mission

BSA is a student organization comprising representatives from Colgate's residential Broad Street and apartment communities. The organization aims to build relationships between student residences, between students and the larger Hamilton community. The organization also strives to build relationships with additional campus constituencies, including faculty and staff.

To build such relationships, the BSA plans and implements programs to bring these groups together.  The association also provides funding for student-initiated programs in line with these goals.

Students residing in any of the 18 Broad Street communities (listed below) may request funding for community-building programming.

  • Only those houses with a delegate on the board are eligible to submit proposals for consideration.
