Student Organization Spotlight: Binghamton Stand-Up Club
Are you looking for an environment where you can freely express yourself? Are you the jokester of your friend group and looking to find others like you? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then Binghamton University’s Stand-Up Club is for you. Stand-Up is a student-run club that provides students with a space to improve their performance, writing and joke-making skills, all while engaging with the campus community through shows and special events.
Recently, I had the opportunity to gain some insight into the club from the President, Michael Price, a Mechanical Engineering major here at Binghamton University. When asked, “What skills do you feel members gain from being a part of your organization?” Price replied with “Members of our club gain quite a few skills, ranging from performance and public speaking skills to writing and workshopping. Members also have the opportunity to film and act in sketches.” He emphasized that all students are welcome to join Stand-Up club and as a campus leader, he believes that “having a community is an essential element to a happy and healthy life, and campus organizations are a good way to build and foster these communities.”
Stand-Up is an extraordinary club that engages students within the campus community to have fun and be themselves. They have opened for comedians hired by the Student Association, performed at a drag show put on by the Rainbow Pride Union, and they host various open-mic nights on campus. These are just a few of the activities that Stand-Up participates in to not only express themselves, but to bring joy and entertainment to other students.
All Binghamton University students are welcome to join Stand-Up. Whether you’re looking to perform or just to listen, Stand-Up encourages all students to get involved. For more information, you can check out their club page on B-engaged, or utilize their Linktree: https://linktr.ee/BingStandUp.
