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.

PAC is the political science department's resident academic club. We hold and conduct peer advisement, run events such as trivia tournaments and DC networking trips, and meet weekly to discuss current US, international, and political news. We hope to help political science students and the Geneseo student body as a whole remain aware and informed of the goings-on in the world around them.

Orchesis

Orchesis is a student run, semesterly club where anyone is welcome to join. Anyone can perform in a dance or choreograph a dance for our showcase each semester. We strive to be all inclusive and encourage everyone to dance regardless of experience. We fundraise and contribute to the Geneseo Dance Department, Teresa House, and Relay for Life.

Musical Theatre Club

The purpose of this organization shall be to develop knowledge of musical theatre, skill in production, and to aid in the general cultural development of the campus population and community. To fulfill this purpose, the club will perform one student produced musical theatre revue show each semester.

Optometry Club

Optometry Club’s members learn to reduce barriers to care by serving as advocates for community members. Students will educate community members about the importance of receiving regular eye exams to improve overall eye health. Members provide free vision screenings to community members each semester as time permits. While performing a vision screening, members must indicate that they are student volunteers, and that the screening just gives an estimate of the community member’s visual acuity (it is not an eye exam). Members of Optometry Club should encourage the community members present at the screening to see an eye care professional for a complete eye exam. Optometry Club will also fundraise for various eye care organizations and hold a used eyeglass drive.

Japanese Culture Club

Japanese Culture Club provides students with the opportunity to learn about Japanese culture through weekly general meetings and occasional club events such as Japan Knight in the fall semester and volunteering at the annual Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C. in the spring semester.

Workouts normally occur twice a week, and we usually hold self-defense classes several times a semester.

Karate Club consists of both seasoned practitioners of martial arts, as well as beginners. The overall goal of Karate Club is to instruct students in self-defense, as well as improve the physical and spiritual well-being of its members.
