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.

Southside Boys

We are Geneseo's first acapella group, and its only all male group. We meet twice a week for two hours to rehearse four chosen songs selected by the group. We have four concerts a year where we perform four songs (eight songs a semester, sixteen a year). At the end of the year, we perform all sixteen songs one last time. We charge five dollars a concert.

Psychology Club

The purpose of this organization is to perform three functions. Our first function is to provide information to undergraduates about important research or internship opportunities within the department and to explain the road-map to achieving the major. The volunteering function is to help students become more involved in the community and promote psychology-related programs on campus. Our last function is to provide academic activities such as colloquiums and speakers for the students that they would not ordinarily receive in the classroom.

Poets Society

Poets' Society exists to spread appreciation of poetry in its various forms and to provide a creative outlet for its members, existing as an open and accepting community of writers and listeners. We hope to not only extend knowledge of the craft and performance of poetry but also to encourage our members to embrace and engage the world of poetry beyond ourselves.

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.
