Simon Business School

Social and Athletic Clubs

Simon’s social and athletic clubs give you opportunities to enjoy the company of your peers and connect with our community. Join a recreational sports team, become a volunteer, or seek a thrilling adventure. Business school doesn't have to be all business.

Outdoor activity fosters camaraderie and confidence, and the OAC strives to share regional outdoor events while introducing Simon students to new experiences through adventure! Upstate New York provides us with the perfect landscape for outdoor adventure through hiking, white water rafting, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, and outdoor exploration.


Simon Dance Club

Simon Dance Club (SDC) aims to promote a sense of community through dance. We provide an open and fun environment that allows members to learn about new dance styles and cultures as well as meet new people. SDC embraces dancers of all levels, and our only rule is positive encouragement at all times! Not only do we host dance lessons for our members, SDC regularly performs at club and student events throughout the academic year.

Simon Foodies Unite

We provide a common ground where students of any program and any back ground can meet to nurture relationships, celebrate diversity, and learn about what Rochester has to offer through breaking bread!

Simon Gaming Club

The mission of the Simon Gaming Club is to provide all students with social activities to further develop friendship and networking opportunities. By connecting members of the Simon community through weekly social gaming meetings and events, we foster relationships in a fun environment while expanding the Simon footprint to the game industry.  

Simon Partners - 730 x 400

Simon Partners

Simon Partners is a casual social club operated by the significant others of Simon students. Simon Partners is an excellent opportunity for Simon students’ partners to obtain career and volunteer contacts in the local area. Additionally, it is designed to provide partners of students coming to Simon Business School an opportunity to build friendships! We welcome all partners (engaged, married, or other) of students and their families to the Simon community, even if your partner will just be visiting for the weekends. Simon Partners events take place in a casual and relaxed setting. There are no dues or fees, other than expenses incurred at planned activities.

Simon Says 

Simon Says is one of the most fun clubs at Simon Business School. Every week we offer members the opportunity to practice public speaking in a relaxed, casual setting. At each meeting, volunteers give prepared speeches, impromptu speeches, offer constructive evaluations, or simply tell a joke. Public speaking is unavoidable at Simon, as well as life after business school. But we take the edge off it. Simon Says promises you the opportunity to develop the communication and critical thinking skills you need to be successful in a non-threatening and supportive environment.

Simon Sports

Simon Sports brings students together for an opportunity to socialize in a team sport setting. We provide structure and help create teams to participate in the University of Rochester intramural flag football, basketball, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, and soccer. We are also the umbrella club for our sanctioned Simon teams who participate and represent Simon at external business school tournaments: Simon Soccer Team, Simon Basketball Team, and Simon Cricket Team.

Simon UNcorked - 730 x 400

Simon UNcorked

Simon UNcorked was founded on the belief that our students should take advantage of every opportunity to set themselves apart from other members of the business community. Beer, wine, and spirits have become an important part of the business networking culture and without a solid foundation and education, you can find yourself in embarrassing situations. For example, suppose you are hosting a business dinner. You carefully researched the restaurant's wine list in preparation for the dinner and selected a wine you thought would be ideal. Upon being seated at dinner, the waiter informs you that they are out of the wine and asks you to make another selection. WHAT DO YOU DO?!

Simon Volunteers - 730 x 400

Simon Volunteers

Simon Volunteers positively represents Simon Business School in the greater Rochester community and aims to enhance the lives of community members through building character in ourselves.

Examples of our annual projects include: Fall Ball Secret Santa Fundraiser, Simon Secret Santa program, Ronald McDonald House, Rochester City School District tutoring and mentoring initiatives, Habitat for Humanity, and much more.
