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.

Knightline Dance Team

Knightline is the official dance team at SUNY Geneseo. We perform fast paced routines that incorporate a kickline at Men's and Women's home basketball, hockey, and soccer games. We also perform at various events on campus such as Relay for Life. We are well networked with other campus organizations and are a close knit group that have formed an unbreakable bond. Routines are choreographed by the team captains and the team is advised by Jody DeLoria, an adjunct professor in the dance department. We hold auditions every fall semester.

Orchesis Dance

We allow anyone of any level to be a dancer or choreograph any family friendly piece they would like, then perform it in our shows that we hold once each semester! We do monthly check ins, provide rehearsal space options, and organize dancers into their choice dances.

Sapphire Winterguard at Geneseo

The purpose of this organization is to provide an environment where students can learn flag spinning, rifle spinning, and basic dance techniques, no matter their level of experience. The ultimate goal of the organization is to represent Geneseo in competition in the North East Color Guard Circuit. The organization will also be available for special performance at sporting events and other campus activities to show school spirit and support.

Musical Theater Club

Musical Theatre Club, or “MTC,” is a student-run organization within SUNY Geneseo whose purpose is to develop and expand the knowledge of musical theatre skills in production, including performance, direction, staging, choreography, musicality, and the technical theatre aspects of costume, set, and lighting design to aid in the general cultural development and enrichment of the campus community. In order to achieve this, MTC offers a musical revue each semester, consisting of a variety of musical theatre pieces and skits that feature the different strengths of our members to produce a well-rounded theatre experience. Auditions for MTC’s performing ensemble are held at the beginning of each semester, with a typical turnout ranging anywhere from 20 to 40 hopefully. Typically, the ensemble itself will range anywhere from 40 to 50 members at any given semester. In addition to the performing ensemble, members of the club help with costume design, light and soundboard operation, spotlight operation, stage management, musical accompaniment, and other aspects of production.

Optometry Club

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.

    Every other week on Wednesdays at 6:00 PM in Bailey

Emmelodics

Emmelodics is a co-ed a capella group designed to promote increased participation in a cappella for a wider audience and to provide more individuals the opportunity to become involved in a cappella performance. It will provide preference to those who have no previous affiliations with any established a cappella groups to further support this purpose. Emmelodics also differentiates its style with the incorporation of multiple soloists in a single arrangement, a wider range of musical genres showcased in a given performance, and the potential for choreographed movements integrated into a routine. Its emphasis on group cohesiveness, flexibility in performance, and building vocal and blending abilities helps foster the “rich co-curricular environment” that the State University of New York at Geneseo strives to maintain as a recognized center of excellence and liberal arts institution.
