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.

Geneseo Beekeeping Club

Beekeeping Club aims to provide students with knowledge regarding all aspects of beekeeping. Specifically, we intend to increase awareness of the drastic decrease in honeybee populations that the US is currently experiencing. For decades the honeybee population has been on the decline, largely due to our actions as a society. Between 2018 and 2019, US honeybee populations experienced a decrease of nearly 40%, with some regions seeing losses of up to 90%. This is particularly damaging due to the fact that honey bees are the primary pollinator of our crops, supporting about $20 billion worth of crop production annually. Our club members are deeply concerned with this phenomenon and would like to make a positive impact by promoting environmental awareness. We accomplish this by holding weekly meetings where we discuss topics related to beekeeping. In addition to our advocacy and training meetings, we care for two hives on campus
