Terrier Tuesday

At the start of each year, SFC’s newest class is welcomed to the college with a party known as Terrier Tuesday. In 2015, SFC held a block party in front of the main entrance.

At the start of Fall 2014, this class enjoyed a first-ever field day at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Events and activities included roller-skating, basketball, football, obstacle courses and tug-a-war.

Community Day

Every spring, the SFC community comes together to celebrate our great cultural diversity. The day is filled with colorful cuisine and entertainment that includes song, dance, poetry and “Who am I” presentations from both faculty and staff.

Tailgate Parties

Throughout the school year, our Student Government Association partners with Athletics and Student Activities to sponsor a wide variety of pre-game parties with food and give-a-ways. Additional attractions include face paint, hair spray and student only cheering sections.

Holiday Party With Rocky

Who can’t resist free hot chocolate, candy canes and selfies with Santa? Each fall, at the conclusion of classes, right before finals begin, the SGA sponsors a stress-free day for its peers. Always full of laughs and smiles.

See-Saw for a Chance

For multiple years, members of the Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity have hosted See-Saw for a Chance, a fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Over a stretch of 50 consecutive hours, members of the fraternity symbolically see-saw in front of St. Francis College as a gesture of continuous fighting and remembrance of children battling cancer. TKE has raised more than $10,000 since it began the project.
