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.

Optometry Club

Optometry Club’s members learn to reduce barriers to care by serving as advocates for community members. Students will educate community members about the importance of receiving regular eye exams to improve overall eye health. Members provide free vision screenings to community members each semester as time permits. While performing a vision screening, members must indicate that they are student volunteers, and that the screening just gives an estimate of the community member’s visual acuity (it is not an eye exam). Members of Optometry Club should encourage the community members present at the screening to see an eye care professional for a complete eye exam. Optometry Club will also fundraise for various eye care organizations and hold a used eyeglass drive.

Karate Club

Karate club teaches a variety of martial arts and self-defense techniques to students of all ages and backgrounds. Workouts normally occur twice a week, and we usually hold self-defense classes several times a semester. Clubs and Greek organizations are welcome and encouraged to contact us and ask to do self-defense workshops with us. All registered students may be members of the club. Karate Club consists of both seasoned practitioners of martial arts, as well as beginners. The overall goal of Karate Club is to instruct students in self-defense, as well as improve the physical and spiritual well-being of its members.

In addition to who we accept, we also refer to ourselves as siblings rather than sisters.

The siblings also participate in traditional greek life, ranging from our philanthropic ventures to siblinghood events.
