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.

Young Children's Council

Our mission as an organization is to aid in the preparation of future teachers by connecting them with children in the community. Through events such as storytime, our members get an opportunity to practice reading to children as well as learning about children from the community. Having students from the community come to the event allows us to get a better understanding of the students we will work with on field visits. Building these strong relationships with Geneseo community children not only makes the children happy, but it makes the Geneseo college students/club members happy and helps in preparing them for their future career.
