Shakti is SUNY Geneseo's South Asian club. The word 'Shakti' originates from Sanskrit and means power or strength.

Shakti at Geneseo represents the people of the countries of South Asia—India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Myanmar, and the Maldives. Shakti's goal is to spread South Asian culture to the students at SUNY Geneseo, and make them more aware of the countries, culture, customs, problems, and people of South Asia.

At weekly General Meetings we talk about festivals, diversity, political events, games, and such that take place in the countries of South Asia. Members consist not only of students from South Asian countries, but also students who want to know more about the region, and want to be involved in our events.
