At Geneseo... there’s no place like here for excellence

Join a community that promotes excellence through learning and engaging with top-notch faculty. Pure and simple, it’s a place that celebrates and inspires the joy of discovery—learning, earning and creating something new every day and in all sorts of ways. Inside the lab. Outside the classroom. On the stage. And the fields of competition.

And why? Because our strong and enduring reputation continues to attract talented and accomplished students from across New York and around the word. And when they’re here, students are inspired to expand their thinking and their options, gaining a global perspective that puts new ideas in context…..but leaving enough room for creativity and yes, room to dream a little! We are a community of connected learners that sustains and inspires students while they are here and well beyond. And want to know how do we define excellence? With stories like these.
