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.

Royal Lady Knights
The Royal Lady Knights is a local sorority that serves as both a service and a social organization. RLK is the largest of its kind at SUNY Geneseo. The women of RLK are active members of the college campus as well as the community. On October 17, 1989, 20 women held a meeting in Erie Hall. This was the first meeting of the soon-to-be Royal Lady Knights. After many different names, the Royal Lady Knights was chosen and kept. "Come as you are" was decided as not only the motto, but also stands as the foundation for the organization. On February 22, 1990, the Royal Lady Knights were officially recognized as a campus wide organization. Laura Wrubel was acquired as the advisor of RLK. On September 24, 1990, the first open meeting was held, approximately 70 people attended! During the first class orientation, the RLK dance was created and has been modified since. In the Spring of 2013, along with social service organizations such as MAC and SMAC, the Royal Lady Knights joined the Inter-Greek Council and was recognized as a local sorority at SUNY Geneseo. After about 25 years of service, 50 orientation classes, and over 850 women later, RLK continues to celebrate and strives to grow with many more members to come!

SUNY Geneseo Model UN Club
The Model UN club holds weekly meetings which generally consist of at least one exercise meant to simulate our conferences in some way. Our conferences in a normal year would be at several colleges around the Northeast and one in Montreal, where each member of the team who comes participates in a separate UN committee simulation. The purpose of these is two debate the topic of that UN assembly meeting and over the course of the weekend, draft and debate UN style resolutions.
