Dining Services

There are several locations on campus to choose from and enjoy an array of food options. Dining Locations vary from all-you-care-to-eat, late-night snack, grab-and-go style, or a quick cup of coffee. Each place has its own set of hours and particular line of goodies to choose from:

Students living on campus are required to have a dining plan and are automatically enrolled in the 19 meals per week plan. Students can change their plan before 4 p.m. on the second Friday of classes. Dining plans consist of meals and Bronco Bucks, which are to be used for your personal consumption. Students living off campus, commuting and at Riverview may add a dining plan before 4 p.m. on the second Friday of classes. Visit the Dining Plan Options webpage to find information on available dining plans, bonus meals, and more information from CADI.

Bronco Bucks allows for tax-free dining on campus and can be used at all CADI campus dining venues for tax-free purchases. Bronco Bucks roll over from the fall semester to the spring semester, as long as a dining plan is purchased in the spring. Bronco Bucks must be used prior to the end of the spring semester, or they will be lost.

Delhi Dollars are easy, safe and convenient. These funds can be electronically accessed using your college ID card to  make purchases without having to handle cash. These can be used on campus in all vending machines, at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore, at any dining venue and at participating businesses in Delhi and Oneonta. Add Delhi Dollars online or at the CADI office. You cannot withdraw cash from your Delhi Dollars Account, but you can close it and receive a full refund if you graduate, transfer or withdraw from SUNY Delhi. Only accounts with a balance over $20 will be considered for a refund. A request for withdrawal of your balance can be made in writing at the CADI Office. Prior to the release of the refund, any outstanding balances due to CADI and/or SUNY will be deducted. For Delhi Dollars Accounts that are inactive after 30 days past the date the student leaves SUNY Delhi, there will be a $20/month inactive account fee until such time as a refund is requested or the balance is depleted. If you have any questions regarding a Delhi Dollars Account, please visit the CADI Office.

Dining Plan Refund Policy - All students residing in SUNY Delhi residence halls must purchase a dining plan. Dining plans for students living off campus, commuting or living at Riverview are optional and must be added. Dining plans can be reduced, upgraded or added during the first 10 days of scheduled classes, After the 10 day period, no refunds will be authorized except for withdrawal or leave of absence from the college, official release from housing, or movement from main campus to the Riverview Townhouses prior to the 10th week of the semester. This refund policy is in compliance with New York State Sales Tax Law, which stipulates that refunds be based solely on the passage of time as opposed to the consumption of food.

  • It is understood that there are administrative costs associated with our food service operation, such as insurance, equipment, maintenance and repair, depreciation, operating expenses, etc. This overhead is calculated annually and will be deducted from the total balance remaining as of the day of discontinuance.
  • Plan refunds will be made as indicated above up to and including the end of the tenth (10th) week of scheduled classes, after which no refunds will be made.
  • If at any time a student is dismissed for disciplinary reasons through the campus judicial process, no dining plan balances will be refunded.
  • Bronco Bucks are non-taxable, and will be refunded on the same schedule as the dining plan.
  • Bronco Bucks balance remaining at the end of the fall term will not be refunded if the student is academically dismissed and does not return for the spring term. Spring term refunds do not include fall rollover balances.
  • Refunds are coordinated with Student Financial Services and will be applied to any balance owed to SUNY Delhi or the College Association at Delhi, Inc. (CADI).
  • Delhi Dollar balances over $20 can be refunded only upon graduation, transfer, withdrawal or dismissal from SUNY Delhi.

College ID Cards - Your ID card is your lifeline to the campus, so be sure to keep it safe! Your card is used to access the dining areas, serves as your residence hall key, library card, campus printing card, and gives you access to the fitness center and pool. Your ID is also your ticket to many student events on campus. IDs are non–transferable, meaning no one but you can use it, so please do not lend your ID to anyone. If someone attempts to use someone else’s ID, the ID will be confiscated at the register. Exceptions can be made if you are injured or sick and cannot physically get to a dining venue. Please contact the CADI Meal Plan Administrator at 607-746-4755 to discuss.

If you lose your ID or it is stolen, report it immediately to be issued a temporary ID for dining plan access. You can also report your card lost on CADI’s GET funds website. A temporary ID costs $1.00 and requires a government-issued photo ID. If you recover your ID, bring it to the CADI office in the Farrell Center for reactivation or reactivate it through the GET funds site or app. A new ID costs $15.00 and is issued at the CADI office. If your ID has been stolen, report it to University Police. Your ID will be replaced at no charge if a copy of the University Police report is provided to the CADI staff.

SUNY Delhi College Policy on Health Insurance

All full-time students must be covered by health insurance to protect against injuries, accidents and illnesses while enrolled at the college. If students do not have their own coverage, they must purchase student health insurance which is available through the college. The coverage is for one calendar year and is included on the student’s fall semester bill. If the student has their own coverage, they must complete an online waiver to have the charge removed from their bill. The online waiver, with a link found on the Health & Counseling Services website, must be completed each year, within 30 days of the start of classes. SUNY Delhi is not responsible for costs associated with injuries or accidents that occur on campus property or at sponsored activities. SUNY Delhi is also not responsible for health insurance deductibles or co-pays.

 

Housing & Residence Life

Catskill Hall, Room 111, 607-746-4630, reslife@delhi.edu

The Office of Residence Life provides popular, safe and congenial quarters for students. Students' academic and social experience at college are supported and enhanced through multiple and diverse programs operated by Residence Life staff members. The Office of Residence Life provides numerous employment opportunities, fostering students’ sense of responsibility and independence, and guiding them in the development of lifelong, marketable skills. Residence Hall programming at SUNY Delhi is essential in developing a sense of belonging and respect within our residential community. Over 400 residential programs promoting student growth and development are sponsored each year in the residence halls. Catskill Hall and the Riverview Townhouses provide students with suite and apartment-style housing options, which expand the diverse living arrangement options for students.

All residence halls have a live-in team of staff members to assist each student. Resident Assistants (RAs) are fellow students who live on each residence hall floor or quad. They are trained as peer helpers, community builders, problem-solvers, and activity planners; but most importantly, they are there to help each student be successful. Residence Hall Directors (RDs) are full-time live-in professional staff members who supervise the RAs and have overall management responsibility for the residence hall in which they live. When in doubt or in need of help, please seek out a staff member! More information about services, programs, policies and procedures may be found in the online Housing Policy Guide.

O'Connor Center for Community Engagement

The O’Connor Center for Community Engagement (OCCE), founded in 1999, provides resources for volunteer and service-learning activities by matching individual students, clubs, classes, faculty and staff volunteers with service opportunities in local non-profit agencies and organizations. OCCE staff may also arrange for transportation, volunteer orientation and training, and feedback on completed service projects.

Students track the service hours they are a part of and submit them to the OCCE Office in order to accurately enter the total on your co-curricular transcript. This is a valuable tool for getting scholarships, internships, transferring and jobs! Those students with exceptional service receive an award and a special colored cord to wear at graduation.

SUNY Delhi students participate in community service for many reasons: to meet other students, gain valuable experience or references for future jobs, develop specific skills, expand understanding by combining course learning objectives with practical experience as part of a service-learning class, or just to feel good by helping others. The OCCE organizes a Community Service Weekend each fall.

You can join student organizations and learn when and where they meet and track your involvement. In addition, many campus offices and departments have a page where they post information about events and opportunities they want students to be aware of. Although BroncoCONNECT can be accessed and fully utilized by any mobile device, there is a free companion app called Corq that you can download from the App Store or Google Play. Corq is a great way to search for campus events and download your very own Event Pass for campus events. Questions on BroncoCONNECT or the Corq App can be directed to the Office of Student Activities.

Visit BroncoCONNECT for the most up-to-date list of active Student Clubs & Organizations on campus. There you will find information about club advisors and club meeting times and locations.  If you need further assistance, please stop by the Office of Student Activities.

A Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT) is an official record of your co-curricular activities (club and organization membership, and activity participation, etc.), special accomplishments, and awards and honors received. As an official college document, the CCT can be used to support your applications for summer employment, internships, graduate school, or employment resumes after graduation. The CCT is also required for the many scholarships and awards SUNY Delhi offers its students. In a recent survey, 71% of employers preferred job applicants to include a co-curricular transcript. For information on starting a CCT, stop by the Student Activities Office to pick up a packet and forms. Packets and forms are also available in downloadable & printable pdf format at the link above.  You can also track your involvement using the CCT function on your BroncoCONNECT page.

Student Rights & Responsibilities

Catskill Hall, Room 111, 607-746-4443

The Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities seeks to educate students about the consequences of their behaviors by holding students accountable for the choices they make. This Office also seeks to encourage community development by implementing preventive programming and addressing violations of community standards and college policies.

The judicial system at SUNY Delhi is educational and progressive. We use education to provide students with an understanding of the consequences of their choices and behaviors. Often, educational sanctions are implemented to help students learn from their behavior in order to make better decisions in the future. The educational sanctions include workshops, community service, judicial educator modules, and counseling, among others.

Students cannot succeed academically or socially if they do not feel safe and secure in their environment, and it is the responsibility of the college to impose sanctions and limits upon those who threaten the tranquility of the campus and safety of others. The judicial system is progressive in that students who continue to violate college policy, regardless of the severity of the offense, are held accountable for their choices and may be removed from the college community if deemed necessary.

The Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities is administered by the Director of Student Rights & Responsibilities and the Vice President for Student Life, often in collaboration with Residence Life and University Police. Students are responsible for knowing and abiding by all of the rules and regulations contained in the Student Code of Conduct. If you have any questions regarding these rules, feel free to speak with the Director of Student Rights & Responsibilities.

 

Student Senate

Farrell Student and Community Center, Room 032, 607-746-4382

Student Senate meets at 5:15 p.m. on Wednesdays, Farrell Center, 2nd floor and is the student governing body for our campus. Meetings are open to the public, and all students and staff are encouraged to attend. The Senate is composed of representatives from all recognized clubs and organizations, plus an Executive Board made up of four student-elected student officers. Student Senate serves as the voice of the students in many important campus-wide issues. In order to best serve all students, the Senate is comprised of several standing committees which include Finance, Dining Hall, and Constitutional Review, as well as Ad-Hoc Committees which are formed to deal with specific issues that may arise. Committee membership is made up of student senators and provides interested students with a chance to participate in greater depth and detail in important campus issues. Student Senate representatives also participate on a statewide basis as active members of the SUNY Wide Student Assembly.

The Student Senate governs and funds over 50 active clubs on campus. All recognized clubs and organizations are supported by the mandatory student activity fee paid by all students. It is the Student Senate that determines how these fees are allocated and spent, and monitors the expenditures of clubs and organizations. Recognized organizations on campus include academic clubs, ethnic groups, service organizations, dance and performance groups, social organizations, and Social Greek Letter Organizations.

Campus-wide entertainment is coordinated through the Student Programming Board (SPB). The SPB presents a wide variety of programming including comedy, movies, concerts, guest speakers, novelty items, trips, Winterfest, and other recreational events. Look for big name entertainers and special guests to visit from time-to-time for major SPB events. SPB is not alone in presenting entertainment on campus, as many clubs, including the Residence Hall Association, BSU, and Greek Council, also promote regular events.

With an active Student Senate and over 50 diverse organizations to participate in, all students are strongly encouraged to “Get Involved” in order to make the most out of the SUNY Delhi experience. For more specific information about policies governing student organizations, please refer to the Student Activities website or BroncoCONNECT.

 

New York State University Police

North Hall, 607-746-4700

SUNY Delhi places the highest priority on the safety and well-being of its students, faculty, and staff. The University Police Department provides law enforcement services for the campus. Officers patrol campus 24 hours-a-day by vehicle, foot and bicycle patrols. Officers possess full police powers and enforce all state and local laws on college property. Nevertheless, the possibility of loss through theft and vandalism or personal injury also requires individual effort to reduce these risks. Prompt reporting of unusual/suspicious activity and observing campus regulations are important obligations of each campus community member. The University Police Department, in conjunction with the Campus Health & Safety Officer, maintain an active fire safety and accident prevention program through frequent inspection of college facilities and the mechanical fire protection system.

A printed copy of the SUNY Delhi Annual Security and Fire Safety Report will be provided upon request by University Police, or the Vice President for Student Life.

The University Police Department supervises the Campus Lost and Found system. Lost property should be reported to University Police and found property delivered to North Hall as soon as possible. The Office will make every effort to locate owners of found property. Property which has not been claimed within 90 days will be disposed of pursuant to law. All students are strongly advised to label their property.

In the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving the immediate threat to the health and safety of persons on the campus, the college will notify the campus community in a timely manner via Rave Mobile Safety. The notification will be disseminated to students, faculty, and staff using several mediums, including the college email system, campus voice mail system and the campus public address system. The warning may also be sent via Rave Mobile Safety, unless notification would otherwise compromise the effort to assist victims or contain the emergency. Depending on the particular circumstance of the crime, the University Police Department may also post a notice on the University Police website. An important part of the emergency notification system is providing the SUNY Delhi community with timely warnings regarding crimes that pose an immediate, ongoing, or continuing threat to persons or property. Upon receiving valid information regarding a potential threat, the college will determine the channels in which the timely warning will be issued. The warning may be posted on the University Police website and/or sent to the campus community via campus email. Posters and flyers may also be made and distributed throughout campus.

Parking Information

All individuals who park on campus at any point must be registered with University Police. The department, located in North Hall, is open 24/7 for parking passes, including free temporary passes for visitors to campus and members of the campus and off-campus community. All individuals parking on campus should read the SUNY Delhi Campus Parking and Traffic Regulations Brochure to be sure they are aware of appropriate places to park, and to read about the Campus Parking Fee, the consequences of multiple outstanding tickets, and the Ticket Appeal process.
