The Macaulay Chess Club at Macaulay Honors College has three main purposes/goals in mind. First and foremost, MCC would promote the betterment of all members’ skills from beginner to master. The club would compete with other colleges in the New York City area, as well as around the country. MCC would also be heavily involved in community service regarding chess. Chess is played at many primary and secondary schools throughout the New York City area. MCC would send representatives to these schools in order to volunteer and provide instruction. Lastly, MCC will host two (2) intramural chess tournaments at the college every year with small prizes and awards.
