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.

Alpha Kappa Phi
Alpha Kappa Phi, also known as the Agonian sorority, is an organized group of young women who strive to positively impact our current and past members, and our surrounding community in Geneseo, New York. Established in 1885, Alpha Kappa Phi has a rich history of creating unbreakable sisterhood and lasting relationships between our members, and we seek to continue that growing bond with every new pledge class. The members of this organization are kind, intelligent, resilient, and hardworking young women that use their positive attributes to uplift themselves and each other; as well as create a positive environment every member is proud to be a part of. One of our organization's mottos is "strive to lead," which we hold near to our hearts as we use our time and resources to create fulfilling experiences for our members as well as give back to the Geneseo community we love to call home.

Partners in Health Engage at SUNY Geneseo
PIH Engage at SUNY Geneseo is a chapter of the parent organization, Partners in Health. We work with our parent organization closely and are provided with the necessary resources and tools. We approach healthcare from an advocacy perspective, fundraising, and through community building and education. We advocate for increased funding for specific global and domestic policies that promote health as a human right (e.g., USAID’s bilateral tuberculosis account and The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria). At SUNY Geneseo, we will hold bi-weekly meetings to work together as a team, have seminars on important issues regarding health and healthcare, and have fundraising events throughout the school year.
Mock Trial at Geneseo
Mock Trial is a competitive Advocacy Club. Each year, we build two teams who compete against other colleges and travel to universities around the US with a fictional civil or criminal court case. As a club, we hone our public speaking and acting skills and emphasize learning legal theory, case law, and rules of evidence. Members of our club come from a range of majors, and our activities provide an excellent building block towards a law school education, but many of our members intend to pursue alternate careers.
American Cancer Society
A worldwide voluntary organization that is committed to raising money for cancer treatments, research, and patients, and helping to educate people on all the effects of cancer and the specifics. Schools, universities, churches, and other organizations participate in a Relay for Life event. This event helps raise money for the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life lets people become more educated. We remember those who are still fighting, those who have passed but not forgotten, and those who have won the battle against cancer.
The purpose of beekeeping club is to keep pollinators relevant, specifically bees, and create a space for members to discuss just how important and fascinating bees are.

Morgan's Message Chapter at SUNY Geneseo
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 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.
