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.

American Cancer Society on Campus

We work with the American Cancer Society directly to raise money, awareness, and volunteer to help spread their mission as well as create a community to fight back against cancer. We organize many events throughout the year not only only to raise money but to raise awareness for different cancers. Some events are our Pink Tie event, breast cancer walk, and breast week ever for October breast cancer month. We also organize and put on Geneseo's Relay For Life each year and raise thousands of dollars. It is also a way to create community and work towards making a difference for good.

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

College Democrats

Outside of meetings, we work very closely with local, statewide, and national politicians to help them with their campaigns. We also have hosted many Geneseo Late Knight events on our own as well as in conjunction with several other politically oriented groups on campus. Members also have attended New York College Democrat conferences and conventions. Each year, members of the Geneseo College Democrats participate in a formal debate with the Geneseo College Republicans.

Council for Exceptional Children

The Council for Exceptional Children is a national organization with professional and student chapters across the country. CEC is an organization that provides activities and programming for people of all ages with special needs as well as gifted and talented individuals. CEC also offers community awareness programs. The organization offers many opportunities for volunteers to work with children, families, and adults in the community.

Alpha Kappa Phi

Alpha Kappa Phi was established in 1885 as the Alpha Chapter of the Agonian Sorority. We strive to uphold our core values through sisterhood, create life-long friendships, and prioritize scholarship. One of our mission statements reads "One step at a time, but always forward", we implement this by always encouraging sisters to be the best version of themselves. Our purpose shall also be to fundraise for charities we deem necessary to strengthen our relationships within the community. Our main charity event is our annual haunted house that occurs in October. All proceeds are donated to Bivona Child Advocacy Center located in Rochester, New York. We use our sorority house to transform it into walk-though haunted house and welcome the Geneseo community to attend our event.

Peace Action Geneseo

Peace Action Geneseo is a non-partisan student group dedicated to empowering student advocates to take action on issues of peace and justice. Through education, grassroots organizing, and action campaigns, we work to promote informed student activism on campus and build leadership among young people in the peace movement. We host events related to peaceful resolution of conflict, environmentalism, nuclear proliferation, and more. Out goals are to: TRAIN students to be effective social advocates and grassroots organizers. EDUCATE young people on peace and justice issues, while keeping students informed on recent peace-related news and events. EMPOWER students to campaign for action and policies that will help our communities and our world become a safer, more peaceful place. CONNECT students to a larger community of young and professional activists who share a similar interest for peace and conflict resolution.

Student Association

The Student Association (SA) is the Undergraduate Student Government serviced to enhance the undergraduate student experience. SA supports numerous student clubs/organizations and is responsible for the allocation of funds, resources, and personnel to various student-focused services and programs. SA is comprised of standing and special committees that serve as advocacy and programming bodies. Further, SA amplifies and represents the student voice through recommendations to Geneseo administration.

Student Coalition for Migrant Workers

The SCMW serves to help migrant workers, migrant students, as well as any Latinx student or person. This club will create community engagement opportunities between the Geneseo Community and the migrant workers community. The club will also help create different fundraising ideas to give out a scholarship to a Migrant/Latinx high school student who would like to attend college but does not have the resources. Finally, the SCMW will help tutor English classes for adults, and tutor different subjects to young children in the Tepeyac Welcoming Migrant Center.

Morgan's Message

Background: Morgan played Division I Women’s Lacrosse at Duke University starting in 2015. In January of 2017, Morgan suffered from a knee injury that resulted in a year's wait until she could return from the field and had to undergo surgery. Her feelings of isolation from the team and stress caused by other relationship issues accelerated the return of anxiety and depression. This time, Morgan chose to suffer in silence, keeping family and friends in the dark as she battled her mental health. Morgan died by suicide in July of 2019 at the age of 22. Message: As an athlete, there is no shame in seeking physical healthcare-- the same should be true for mental healthcare. In order to close the gap, we must eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health together. The purpose of this club is to offer students a chance to join in the fight to de-stigmatize mental health problems and promote a culture of well-being in athletes, alongside the non-profit organization called Morgan’s Message. Stigma is one of the main reasons why athletes with mental health issues don’t seek the help they need. Gender stereotyping, busy schedules and a poor understanding of mental health also play a critical part. Many problems of mental health in student-athletes have been brought to light recently, but haven’t been dealt with to help their athletes in the quickest/safest manner possible. It is our role as athletes, coaches, and sports governing bodies to help de-stigmatize mental health problems and promote a culture of well-being. The goal of the club’s meetings is aimed to amplify stories, resources, and expertise to confront student-athlete mental health, build a community by and for athletes, and provide a platform for advocacy. Students will be able to gain a better understanding of mental health and how to pass that knowledge to others. These goals will be accomplished through information sessions to improve these skills and fundraisers to donate as we take further action in this cause. These events and fundraisers will be another fun way to bond with others in between difficult and serious discussions, while still having a positive impact.
