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.

Memories Campaign at Geneseo

Memories Campaign is oral history program—in collaboration with the Geneseo English Department and the Livingston County Office of the Aging—devoted to recording the folk traditions and history of the SUNY Geneseo community. Student volunteers will be trained in recording and transcribing dialects and dialogue, managing self-limiting stories and emphasizing self-empowering stories, and publishing recorded oral histories of Senior citizens in the Geneseo community. The club will contribute magazines to the college highlighting their work with each Senior citizen.

Karate Club

We are an organization that aims to allow all students, regardless of experience, to learn and practice karate in a fun, inclusive, and low-pressure environment. We structure our meetings to allow each student to work to their own level of intensity so that everybody can have a valuable experience no matter their martial arts background. In club, we teach many different facets of karate, including technique, kata, sparring, breaking, and self-defense. We draw from a variety of karate styles to help establish a broad base of knowledge, and we welcome students from every style of martial arts, not just karate. Karate club is a wonderful place to begin your martial arts journey or to expand on the knowledge and skills you already have.

Geneseo Beekeeping Club

Beekeeping Club aims to provide students with knowledge regarding all aspects of beekeeping. Specifically, we intend to increase awareness of the drastic decrease in honeybee populations that the US is currently experiencing. For decades the honeybee population has been on the decline, largely due to our actions as a society. Between 2018 and 2019, US honeybee populations experienced a decrease of nearly 40%, with some regions seeing losses of up to 90%. This is particularly damaging due to the fact that honey bees are the primary pollinator of our crops, supporting about $20 billion worth of crop production annually. Our club members are deeply concerned with this phenomenon and would like to make a positive impact by promoting environmental awareness. We accomplish this by holding weekly meetings where we discuss topics related to beekeeping. In addition to our advocacy and training meetings, we care for two hives on campus

History Club

History Club's purpose is to encourage the pursuit of historical research and interest, to provide an understanding of current events through an understanding of their historical basis, and to provide an opportunity for students to share their historical interests through lectures, discussions, and trips. Some of our events include game nights, trivia, movie nights, historical or current event discussions, collaborations with professors, Peer Advisement, and more!

Gajjda Bhangra

We are a co-ed dance team who dances competitively all around Geneseo campus, as well as other off campus events. This style of dance originated in the punjab region of India, and has been danced competitively. It is a high energy and joyful form of dance.

Gsteppas

The mission of G-Steppas is to form an inclusive space that enforces the importance of step culture, while also promoting a safe and fun environment for self-expression. Gsteppas works to build teamwork and discipline between members and to cultivate a family-oriented community. We aim to educate our team and the Geneseo community on the history and power of step through performances.

Korean American Student Association

The purpose of the Korean American Student Association (KASA) is to unify individuals of all backgrounds to share in and experience Korean culture through various educational, social and recreational programs. The purpose of the organization must be consistent with the mission of the College. KASA holds weekly meetings during which the E-board members present on a topic pertaining to Korean culture, traditions, and entertainment. We also host several events throughout the year. The K-Pop Trivia Night, Running Man, and Pumpkin Carving events take place in the Fall semester. Our annual cultural dinner, Korea Night, takes place in the Spring semester.

Muslim Student Association

Our aim is to promote a sense of community among Muslim and non-Muslim students on campus, dispel common misconceptions and stereotypes of Islam, and present the Islamic culture, history, and thought to the community as a whole. This organization does not exist to enforce the practice of the religion but rather to provide a venue through which Geneseo students, Muslim and non-Muslim, may explore the religion.
