The Tribeca Flashpoint Student Government represents the student voice and aims to build a liaison between students, faculty and staff, and administration in order to ensure the welfare of our community. Through strong leadership, Student Government strives to provide all students with opportunities to grow academically, artistically, professionally and personally.
Suspension is a place made by students, for students. We are a collaborative media-sharing center, a hub for networking within TFA. Our aim is to suspend your disbelief in your art, inspiring confidence though constructive criticism and friendly support. Suspension is evolving into a website for students to log into and upload their personal work, a safe zone for artists to develop and grow in their craft.
Audio Engineering Society (AES)
The Audio Engineering Society (AES) - now in its sixth decade - is the only professional society devoted exclusively to audio technology. Its membership of leading engineers, scientists, academics and other authorities has grown dramatically throughout the world, boosting the stature of the society and that of its members. The AES serves its members, the audio industry and the public by stimulating and facilitating advances in the field of audio. It encourages and disseminates new developments through annual technical meetings and exhibitions of professional equipment, and through its many publications including Convention Papers, Conference Proceedings, Tutorials, online publications and The Journal of the Audio Engineering Society.
Film Society is for students of all disciplines to explore the art and process of filmmaking and meet independent filmmakers while socializing with one another. The Film Society organizes screenings and Q&A's in Tribeca Flashpoint's own state-of-the-art screening room, as well as outings to view new releases at area movie theaters.
Whether you're aging like fine wine or like milk, you are welcome to "walker" it on over to the Old People's Club. The goal of the Old People's Club is to raise the comfort level of those who are above the average college age (25 and up), whether they're in their first year of college or are going back to school. At our meetings, we help each other with age related problems (such as our Hair Loss Support Group), but mostly we tell jokes. We also aim to help other student organizations whenever possible by assisting on projects where needed.
The Veterans Club gathers student veterans together to talk about the issues they face as former members of our armed forces. We work to bring in speakers to talk with students about issues they face while in transition, as well as to show solidarity and support.
Tribeca Flashpoint’s Gay Straight Alliance connects Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual, and Allied (LGTBA) students in all fields of media to create a safe environment to network, act as a support group to motivate each other, create opportunities for future collaborative projects, and view and discuss LGTB films and the latest news relating to civil rights. Even if you don't identify as LGTB, it's a great way to show support for your fellow Tribeca Flashpoint students and encourage everyone to be themselves.
Tribeca Flashpoint's Women in Media group strives to connect women in all fields of media arts. Our mission is to create opportunities for future collaborative projects and act as a support group to motivate more women to enter the field. Finally, Women in Media aims to build stronger networks by emphasizing the critical importance of grooming women for leadership and mentorship roles, preparing them to serve as exemplary models both as skilled media professionals and as women.
