Resources for Students

Student Life


The Sociology Student Association (SSA) advocates for student interest in the Sociology Program. This is done through serving on program committees, organizing SSA meetings, and organizing events for students.

To see the list of current SSA members check out the SSA website committee page.

The website also provides information to students about life in the program. Some content is only viewable to current students who are logged into OpenCUNY.org (a GC student funded open source web platform for students interested in making websites). You can use OpenCUNY to participate on the SSA site as well as making your own academic, research, or conference site.

The Bob Alford Library


The Bob Alford Library, located in the lounge of the Sociology Program, provides a great resource to students. To borrow one of the books, or search the catalog go to librarything.com and log in with the username alfordlibrary and the password gcsociology. 

Once you are logged in you can search for books, and when you would like to borrow one edit the tag for the book to say "checked out" and then your name or email. 

Please be respectful and remember to eventually return your books and put them back on the shelf that they belong.
