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.

Minority Association for Pre-Health Students

MAPS of SUNY Geneseo will be inclusive of students interested in developing into compassionate and competent health cared professionals that are dedicated to serving minority and indigent communities. Community service is the “heart and soul” of the Student National Medical Association. Through Health Fairs, the HIP Corps (HIV Intervention Prevention Corps), Tissue and Organ Donation Education and Recruitment (TODER), Sexual Health Awareness programs and providing information about mental health, nutrition, neonatal care, STDs, the dangers of tobacco, SNNA and MAPS chapters members become better acquainted with surrounding communities and educate the community to reduce the alarming occurrence of diseases which impact on the quality of health and life.

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.

Pre-Veterinary Club

The Vet club allows students an outlet to learn and expand outside of the classroom. With limited available resources on campus, the club allows students ways to gain experience and knowledge by connecting students with experts in Geneseo and the surrounding community. These include connections to nearby farms where students may gain professional relationships and experiences in the veterinary field, connections to small animal practices in Monroe and Livingston County, and other methods of connecting to animals in the real world. The club contributes in giving back to the community through multiple volunteer activities such as club run fundraisers and assisting with organizational benefits such as Barktoberfest at Lollypop farm.

Pride Alliance

The Pride Alliance is a safe and inclusive space for LGBTQ+ students and their allies to find community, discuss the issues they face, and celebrate diversity. Our purpose is to unite SUNY Geneseo's LGBTQ+ community. Each weekly meeting centers around a different topic, giving members the opportunity to expand their knowledge. In addition to our regular weekly meetings, we have several annual events that draw hundreds of students each year. Second Chance Prom is a fall dance that invites everyone to dress how they want, bring who they want, and be who they want. Students who couldn't enjoy their high school proms due to prejudice and discrimination get a second chance here. In the spring, Pride and GLK host Drag Ball, a huge celebration of drag performance as an art form born from the LGBTQ+ community. This event includes both student and professional performers. Our other events include our recurring LGBTQ+? Fine By Me and Trans? Fine By Me panels, where students in attendance can ask panelists of specific identities about their experiences on campus. We also have a yearly cultural dinner, Pride Night, another celebration of LGBTQ+ culture.
