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

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.

History Club at Geneseo

We meet weekly and regularly discuss "This Day in History," as well as historical connections to current events. Additionally, we have recently incorporated more game & trivia nights, all historically themed (i.e. Jeopardy, Family Feud-style history games). This coming year, we plan on diversifying our events even more, taking trips, collaborating with professors, etc.

Gajjda Bhangra

Gajjda Bhangra team’s purpose is to utilize Bhangra as a culture and a style of dance to promote and contribute to a diverse and multi-faceted community through on-campus workshops and performance, as well as represent Geneseo at regional Bhangra competitions and festivals. \n\nThis is in accordance with the college’s mission statement to promote diversity and community, as well as tradition, as the Bhangra team works to educate its members as to the history and culture of respect central to the style of dance and Punjabi culture. It provides an interactive learning experience. As one of the most diverse teams in the nation, it promotes Geneseo’s mission of Innovation, offering Geneseo students another facet to explore new perspectives and cultures and challenge themselves.

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.

Himalayan Student Association

The Himalayan Student Association (HSA) hopes to spread awareness and encourage involvement among Nepalese students and other individuals who share an interest in the culture and history. Future events and activities include Lhosar, Holi, and Tihar. Lhosar marks the celebration of a new year for Buddhists. The holiday is celebrated on the first day of the lunisolar Tibetan calendar, which corresponds to a date in February or March. The HSA organization will be coming together to make and prepare khapse (a Tibetan/Sherpa biscuit that is traditionally prepared during Losar). Holi is a Hindu festival, also known as the "festival of colours", celebrated in India and Nepal. Dashain and Tihar are two Hindu festivals celebrated every fall. Kite flying is one of the events planned in celebration of these festivals.To commemorate this occasion there will be a “Decorate your kite with a personalized message”.

Films Club

There are three parts to our club's main purpose. The first part is to introduce students to new types of film genres, styles of directing, and film companies. The second part is to bring together students with an interest in watching films. The third part is to analyze the historical background surrounding each film. The historical background includes: the company that made it, history of the director and actors, various film techniques used in the movie, and its impact on the country it was created in. The films we will be watching will range time period wise from the early 1900s to the present. Also the films will vary on what country produced them. The main events our organization will have are officer meetings and film screenings. Officer meetings will discuss the various films we will show and check on how the club is doing. Film screenings will show a movie and have the president or vice-president provide the movie's historical background.
