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.

We will continue to attract members of all beliefs who appreciate our great heritage as a fraternity of Jewish men.

Men of Action and Change

On behalf of the organization Men of Action and Change, local chapter at the State University of New York College at Geneseo, all members are herein to swear by and uphold the statutes and codes inscribed in the following document. Men of Action and Change are inherently representative of themselves, as well as other members, at all times. They are to uphold the five core principles handed down by our forefathers of Service, Scholarship, Unity, Fitness, and Loyalty when conducting themselves both in private and public. We hold both social and service events both on and off campus.

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.

Green Environmental Group

The Green Environmental Organization's mission is to promote environmentally-friendly practices on our campus, in our community, in our state and in our world. In doing this we will promote good health, biological diversity and the sustainability of the Earth and its people. We do this by cleaning up right here in Geneseo, educating the Geneseo community and connecting with bigger environmental campaigns across the US.

Golden Key International Honour Society

The Golden Key National Honour Society was founded in 1977 at Georgia State University, and the SUNY Geneseo chapter was chartered in 1994. The purpose of the society is to provide a forum for recognizing all exceptional students, regardless of their major or their level of involvement in campus activities. The SUNY Geneseo chapter extends invitations for membership each January to the top 15% of juniors and seniors (students with more than 60 credits). There are many benefits to membership in Golden Key. Newly inducted members pay a one-time membership fee, and are then entitled to participate in all Golden Key activities. In addition to being a resume builder, Golden Key membership offers chances at valuable leadership opportunities; chances to publish creative work in the society magazine, Concepts; and access to a wide network of advisors, alumni, and honorary members. Golden Key members receive access to Golden Key's Online Career Library, discounts to Kaplan Test Courses, and access to numerous national scholarship opportunities in all areas of academic and creative work. SUNY Geneseo's Golden Key chapter annually presents two scholarships: one to an outstanding new inductee, and one to an outstanding active member. Finally, the national organization also awards research grants and study abroad scholarships to qualified members. Our chapter focuses on providing academic service in the community of Geneseo and in the greater Livingston county. We do this by running registration workshops for freshman in the fall, reading to or with nearby elementary students, and supporting higher education in local high schools. We also participate in non-academically focused service activities, like Make-A-Difference Day, the Day of Caring, fundraising for the Livingston County Cares project, and Adopt-A-Family. We are a non-SA funded organization with a great deal of flexibility and resources. Our activities depend on the perceived needs of the community. If you have any suggestions for activities, feel free to contact us! If you are a recent invitee, please feel free to email chapter officers any questions you may have about Golden Key membership. If you are a student with less than 60 credits, please make Golden Key membership a goal to strive for in the future!

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).
