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 Red Cross Club

We run the blood drives on campus, twice a semester (they are usually held in the interfaith center or the union). We hold monthly meetings, to go over blood drives and listen to speakers. We also run a fundraiser once a year, we have done pass-by tables and pieing events in the past. Mission Statement: The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.​ Our purpose is to try to get our community to donate as much blood as possible so we can help as many people as possible in the Rochester area.

Neuroscience Club

The purpose of this organization is to provide space for students to connect via a shared interest in the field of Neuroscience. Members will work together to plan and host enrichment events such as course-schedule planning, Neuroscience on-campus research lab recruitment, recent Geneseo grad panels, and fundraising events with funds being donated to various organizations.

Geography Club

Geography Club is a club sponsored by the SUNY Geneseo Department of Geography and Sustainability Studies. Its goal is to provide students of Geneseo that have interest in the subject of geography an outlet for that passion. It does so by offering geographically applicable civil service events, referred to as mapathons, which aim to improve the mapping accuracy of the developing world. It also provides academic and career advisement sessions in peer and faculty advisement discussions, as well as fun and creative outlets in trivia nights, and game nights.

Caribbean Student Association

The Caribbean Student Association is dedicated to spreading awareness and educating about the Caribbean and Caribbean culture on campus. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive and welcoming environment for Caribbean identifying students and all intersecting identities on campus.

Elementary and Secondary Education Association

The purposes of this organization are: 1. To provide student representation on committees within the School of Education and the College as determined each academic year in consultation with the Dean of the School of Education; 2. To provide students with exploration in career opportunities in the teaching profession; 3. To provide students with programs that increase awareness of educational issues; 4. To provide opportunities to involve students in various service, including but not limited to volunteering and tutoring in an educational contexts and in the community; 5. To foster channels of communication between faculty and students, and among the students themselves; 6. To work to improve the quality of the teacher education program at the State University at Geneseo.

Creative Writing Club at Geneseo

We'll decide who will be submitting for workshop each week. Submission is completely voluntary. Most likely it will be fiction, but we're opening the floor to poetry as well this semester. Afterwards we'll do some cool writing prompts and share them around the room. This club is totally for fun! People who take Creative Writing seriously are more than welcome (and encouraged) to join, but the meetings are perfect for any skill level.

Le Cercle Français

We plan to have meetings once a month relating to French language, culture, music, and food! Usually, we take a yearly trip to Montreal, but, unfortunately, this year that won't be possible.

Club Tennis

Club tennis will be exposed in the Student Expo as a way to get more students involved in this beautiful sport. Tennis is great sport that increases ones reaction time and helps improves muscle tone, endurance and flexibility. Practice will be held in the form of mini tennis, volleying, stretches, running, etc. Games such as King/Queen of the court Gladiator and more will be conducted.

Pride Alliance

Pride Alliance is an on-campus group devoted to discussing LGBTQ+ issues, promoting activism in the queer community, and maintaining a safe space in which all students can thrive. Pride provides a relaxed and safe environment for anyone to share and learn about issues related to gender and sexual minorities in today's world. With the help of its members, Pride plans several Late Knight events such as Second Chance Prom and Drag Ball. We also offer many other on campus events such as the "LGBT? Fine By Me" panel discussion, speakers for National Coming Out Day along with Pride Night, which is an event to celebrate both the club and the cultures it promotes. Ultimately, our goal is to make the campus a better and more informed environment so all students can call Geneseo their home.

Animal Lovers of Geneseo

We want to promote education and awareness about safe and ethical treatment of animals, and promote responsible ownership practices for people who own any pets. Since COVID has restricted many gatherings, this club aims to use social media as its main platform to bring people together and promote awareness about being a pet owner and the use of animals in laboratories. We plan on hold virtual events that offer a safe and convenient meeting space to talk about our shared interest in animals. Some possible events include raising money for local animal shelters, the ASPCA, Happy Animals Club, and other organizations that share our same goal. Another possible event could be going to nearby animal shelters to offer support and doing a show and tell of local pets for animal therapy (restrictions permitting).
