Why Choose SUNY Geneseo?

If you've been accepted to Geneseo and are still weighing your options, consider the following.

You already know Geneseo’s strong academic reputation as one of the premier public liberal arts colleges in the country. Here, you can choose from among 50 degree programs and build real-world skills through internships and faculty-led research projects. Geneseo’s #1 graduation rate among the SUNYs reflects our solid student outcomes: within a year, nearly 90% of graduates are working or in a graduate program.

Campus life here is exciting and varied, with activities to suit your personal tastes and people to share them with.

You can choose from more than 200 clubs and organizations (Greek life! The Lamron newspaper! Quidditch!) or attend one of the 4,000+ events we hold each year.

You may study abroad — nearly 40% of our students do. Or you could participate on one of our 20 Division III athletic teams or 13 club teams.

Your new hometown of Geneseo features a historic and picturesque Main Street that’s a popular hangout for students, faculty, and local residents. Love the outdoors? Right down the road is Letchworth State Park, voted Best State Park (USA Today) and nicknamed “the Grand Canyon of the East.” If you crave a taste of metro life, you’ll have easy access to both Rochester and Buffalo, along with their many restaurants, cultural and athletic events, and lively music and festival scenes. And New York’s Finger Lakes region offers beautiful scenery, plus more than 200 wineries and craft breweries to explore and enjoy.

But don't take it from us. Come to Geneseo and see for yourself.
