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.

Delta Phi Epsilon
Delta Phi Epsilon is an international social sorority founded in 1917 on the principles of justice, sisterhood, and love.

Aside from social events, we also participate in fundraising for our philanthropies, participating in community service, and hosting different events with other campus organizations. Our motto is esse quam videri, which means to be rather than to seem to be. Delta Phi Epsilon celebrates the authenticity and uniqueness of each individual in our chapter, and encourages its members to be their true selves. As a sorority, we are committed to using our platform to speak out against injustices that directly and indirectly affect our members and their communities.

Royal Lady Knights
The Royal Lady Knights is a local sorority that serves as both a service and a social organization. RLK is the largest of its kind at SUNY Geneseo. The women of RLK are active members of the college campus as well as the community. On October 17, 1989, 20 women held a meeting in Erie Hall. This was the first meeting of the soon-to-be Royal Lady Knights. After many different names, the Royal Lady Knights was chosen and kept. "Come as you are" was decided as not only the motto, but also stands as the foundation for the organization. On February 22, 1990, the Royal Lady Knights were officially recognized as a campus wide organization. Laura Wrubel was acquired as the advisor of RLK. On September 24, 1990, the first open meeting was held, approximately 70 people attended! During the first class orientation, the RLK dance was created and has been modified since. In the Spring of 2013, along with social service organizations such as MAC and SMAC, the Royal Lady Knights joined the Inter-Greek Council and was recognized as a local sorority at SUNY Geneseo. After about 25 years of service, 50 orientation classes, and over 850 women later, RLK continues to celebrate and strives to grow with many more members to come!
Our club is currently working with the Ronald McDonald Foundation as well The Alzheimer's Association to fundraise for research relating to alzheimer's disease.
