Geneseo Alumni Association

The first meeting of the Geneseo Alumni Association was convened in the spring of 1942. Since that historic meeting, the Association has grown and evolved along with the College, and now proudly represents more than 56,000 alumni.

Our Vision Statement:

The Geneseo Alumni Association shall be a vital partner supporting the College through the significant engagement of current and future alumni, enriching the lives of alumni while involving them in Geneseo’s future and building upon the proud history and traditions of the institution.

  • PROVIDE ways to involve future and current alumni and their organizations in service to the College thus strengthening volunteer participation and philanthropy.
