Organization Directory

Welcome to the Student Organization Directory!

With more than 180 student clubs and organizations, there truly is something for everyone at SUNY Geneseo.

A college-registered Student Organization is any student-driven group whose primary membership and entire leadership consists of students enrolled at SUNY Geneseo; is formed in order to contribute to the students' personal development and the advancement of the College Mission; is non-credit bearing; and is officially registered with the Department of Student Life.

Full registration does not imply college endorsement of the positions and views of any organization. Rather, it implies that the institution accepts the organization’s mission as educationally valid and that the organization has complied with institutional registration and continuing registration procedures. 

Full registration with the College does not permit the organization to act in the name of the university, to represent the university, engage in any contractual obligation in the name of the university, nor represent the organization as being an official part of the university.

College Democrats at Geneseo

The purpose of this organization is to discuss Democratic politics and current events, while helping to spread the values of the Democratic Party across the Geneseo campus and outside community. We believe in exposing students to local, state-wide, national, and international politics and encouraging calm, rational discussions. Our organization welcomes students from across the political spectrum, and we are proud to foster communication among students who disagree with one another. We also believe in encouraging broader student participation in politics, working either on our own to help spread the values of the Democratic Party or working with the College Republicans and Political Affairs Club to encourage general political participation.

College Republicans

The Geneseo College Republican’s mission is to provide a community in which conservative ideals can be discussed, debated, and promoted on a local level and beyond. It aims to welcome any and all open to participating in this dialogue, regardless of their background, and it looks to provide for all of its members the opportunity to grow intellectually, to deepen their understandings of the political landscape, and to offer unique and valuable experiences available no where else.

Friends of Recreation, Conservation, and Environmental Stewardship

The FORCES program and name is defined by several of the elements below: \n\nFRIENDS \nStudents and community members seeking new and interesting experiences, with a willingness to help improve their local parks and historic sites \n\nRECREATION \nThis "force" contributes to patron education on different forms of and ways to recreate; improvement projects and maintenance that enhance hiking and sporting activities in NYS parks. It also reflects the philosophy that patrons who participate in recreational activities are more likely to appreciate and want to protect the environments where they take place. \n\nCONSERVATION \nAt FORCES we also focus our efforts on conserving and protecting the rich heritage and culture found in NYS historic sites and other unique areas. \n\nENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP \nIn addition, FORCES directly involves environmental projects and education that benefit the parks. Educational and environmental projects include invasive species management, plant and wildlife protection, water quality assessment and trail improvement. \nb.

Alpha Omega Pi

Our organization was founded in 1985 as a place for female-identifying people to build life-long friendships, create networking opportunities, strive for the betterment our community and establish a home in the small town of Geneseo, NY. \n\nAs members of the Greek community, we are actively involved in charity work which enable leadership opportinities and foster academic success. Upon entering the career-world, our commitment to sisterhood and friendship empowers sisters to graduate Geneseo as determined, capable, intelligent, and well-rounded women ready to conquer the world. \n\nFurthermore, through academic partners & alumni connections sisters are able to deepen their understanding in a diverse field of interests. Our alumni network help carve pathways and provide career opportunities for all members, whether they be active sisters or long-time alumnus themselves. Likewise, our involvements in philanthropy such as fundraising events for Give Kids the the World, the annual Breast Cancer Awareness walk in Rochester, high school scholarships and so forth promote a positive association with our community. These engagements also teach our sisters the importance of giving back and community outreach while also allowing a sense of autonomy when choosing charities. \n\nLastly, AOPi strives to be a diverse community of female-identifying people that are accepting and inclusive of people of all race, gender, sexual orientation, economic background, abilities, etc. \n\nOverall, AOPi is a dedicated group of self-determined women that aspire to cultivate a positive and progressive community within this sorority, this school, and the world.

Currently Known As

Currently Known As: educates students in the art of improvisational theatre through guided practice, performance, and self‐evaluation so that the student may learn from their self and others. Currently Known As: believes that all students can learn to perform with the help of friends, dedication and perseverance. Thus, Currently Known As: will hold no auditions, or turn anyone away who desires to be a member of the troupe. To do this would be to deny the students an opportunity to learn, perform, make friends, and grow as a person.
