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.

The Lamron

To act as the official publication of the students at the State University College at Geneseo by publishing a weekly newspaper through the school year, except during examination and vacation periods

Memories Campaign at Geneseo

Memories Campaign is oral history program—in collaboration with the Geneseo English Department and the Livingston County Office of the Aging—devoted to recording the folk traditions and history of the SUNY Geneseo community. Student volunteers will be trained in recording and transcribing dialects and dialogue, managing self-limiting stories and emphasizing self-empowering stories, and publishing recorded oral histories of Senior citizens in the Geneseo community. The club will contribute magazines to the college highlighting their work with each Senior citizen.

MiNT Magazine

Each semester, MiNT will accept submissions from the student body for writing and art, which we will review as a club. Then, with the accepted submissions, we will create a literary magazine that will be distributed to the student body. We also publish everything on our website and hold a launch party where people can read their writing and talk about their art.

Golden Key International Honour Society

The Golden Key National Honour Society was founded in 1977 at Georgia State University, and the SUNY Geneseo chapter was chartered in 1994. The purpose of the society is to provide a forum for recognizing all exceptional students, regardless of their major or their level of involvement in campus activities. The SUNY Geneseo chapter extends invitations for membership each January to the top 15% of juniors and seniors (students with more than 60 credits). There are many benefits to membership in Golden Key. Newly inducted members pay a one-time membership fee, and are then entitled to participate in all Golden Key activities. In addition to being a resume builder, Golden Key membership offers chances at valuable leadership opportunities; chances to publish creative work in the society magazine, Concepts; and access to a wide network of advisors, alumni, and honorary members. Golden Key members receive access to Golden Key's Online Career Library, discounts to Kaplan Test Courses, and access to numerous national scholarship opportunities in all areas of academic and creative work. SUNY Geneseo's Golden Key chapter annually presents two scholarships: one to an outstanding new inductee, and one to an outstanding active member. Finally, the national organization also awards research grants and study abroad scholarships to qualified members. Our chapter focuses on providing academic service in the community of Geneseo and in the greater Livingston county. We do this by running registration workshops for freshman in the fall, reading to or with nearby elementary students, and supporting higher education in local high schools. We also participate in non-academically focused service activities, like Make-A-Difference Day, the Day of Caring, fundraising for the Livingston County Cares project, and Adopt-A-Family. We are a non-SA funded organization with a great deal of flexibility and resources. Our activities depend on the perceived needs of the community. If you have any suggestions for activities, feel free to contact us! If you are a recent invitee, please feel free to email chapter officers any questions you may have about Golden Key membership. If you are a student with less than 60 credits, please make Golden Key membership a goal to strive for in the future!

Voices Uncovered

Voices Uncovered is dedicated to providing an encouraging and judgment-free creative platform for marginalized students to share their unique abilities and talents with their fellow Geneseo peers, faculty, and staff. This creative platform can range from student written scripts, performances, or showcases that enable students to highlight areas of concern and educate their fellow peers on issues that are important to them. Voices Uncovered will devote its time to process students’ experiences with micro-aggressions, stereotyping, and discriminatory discourse or actions. Members of the club will be encouraged to speak up about their experiences dealing with these issues. Voices Uncovered will further the conversation about marginalization and discrimination by actively challenging the status quo and collaborating with Geneseo student cultural groups. Geneseo is our home away from home and we see the value in fixing or drawing attention to areas of concern in this regard. In order to achieve this, Voices Uncovered will allot a space during our meetings for free-writes and open discourse. In this space, students can talk about recent events that have affected them on a personal or global level. We believe that any incident, no matter how miniscule it may seem, is worth discussing. Oftentimes, individuals who have experienced a form of discrimination or have been marginalized by their peers seek validation for their reactions and emotions. Additionally, Voices Uncovered will host group interviews focused on self-identity and marginalization that will serve as the foundation for the end of the semester performance geared towards highlighting these particular issues in an attempt to educate our Geneseo campus. Consenting individuals will also be published on our permanent online presence. Voices Uncovered is passionate about empowering our fellow peers to have their voices heard and inviting our community to listen.

Her Campus at Geneseo

Her Campus writers will have the opportunity to enrich their college experience by interacting with other successful college-age women while publishing their writing on a national website. The purpose of the club is to provide a platform for young women (though not exclusive to women) of our campus to share their voices with a higher audience.

Iris Magazine

Iris Magazine is a student-run queer literary magazine that accepts submissions of creative writing, art, photography, music, and anything that describes a student’s queerness. We publish twice a semester and have a theme for students to take inspiration from. We encourage students to use Iris Magazine as a way to celebrate and learn about different queer identities.
