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.

Shakti: South Asian Student Association

We want to spread South Asian culture to the students at SUNY Geneseo, and make them more aware of the countries, culture, customs, problems, and people of South Asia. At our weekly General Meetings we talk about festivals, diversity, political events, games, and such that take place in the countries of South Asia. Our members consist not only of students from South Asian countries, but also students who want to know more about the region, and want to be involved in our events. \n\nOur biggest events of the year include the Diwali Dinner that celebrates the Hindu festival of Diwali, ACE's Intercultural Dinner, and our dinner and show, Sangamam. At Sangamam, we celebrate South Asian culture through a traditional dinner and—staying true to Bollywood—a skit that includes many dance performances. Sangamam is a wonderful evening of color, music, dance, and festivities. \n\nShakti is part of the SUNY Geneseo Alliance for Community Enrichment (ACE) and is funded by the Student Association (SA).

Latinx Student Association

LSA strives to educate the Geneseo community on Latinx culture through our Hispanic Heritage Month event that we hold with GLK. We also hold dinners throughout the year to educate people about important events occurring in Latinx countries, educate people on our culture, and allow people to experience our foods. Two of our dinners are La Mezcla in the fall semester and Sabor Latino in the spring semester.

African Student Association

The purpose of this organization is: \n\nTo act as the official representative of the African student body in matters affecting them at SUNY Geneseo. \nTo cooperate with other regional and/or national African student bodies concerned with or engaged in activities promoting the welfare of the African continent. \nTo improve the quality of life of African Students at SUNY Geneseo by arranging social activities, other cultural and sporting events.

Geneseo Campus Activities Board

It is the mission of Geneseo Campus Activities Board to expand artistic expression, build student connections, and provide fulfilling amusement to the Geneseo Campus. Geneseo Campus Activities Board was formed in 1968 in response to demand for more non-Greek activities on campus. As a standing committee of Student Association, GCAB receives an annual budget from the collection of mandatory student activity fees. The GCAB Chair serves on the Student Association Executive Committee as the Director of Student Programming.

Muslim Student Association

Our aim is to promote a sense of community among Muslim and non-Muslim students on campus, dispel common misconceptions and stereotypes of Islam, and present the Islamic culture, history, and thought to the community as a whole. This organization does not exist to enforce the practice of the religion but rather to provide a venue through which Geneseo students, Muslim and non-Muslim, may explore the religion.

Himalayan Student Association

The Himalayan Student Association (HSA) hopes to spread awareness and encourage involvement among Nepalese students and other individuals who share an interest in the culture and history. Future events and activities include Lhosar, Holi, and Tihar. Lhosar marks the celebration of a new year for Buddhists. The holiday is celebrated on the first day of the lunisolar Tibetan calendar, which corresponds to a date in February or March. The HSA organization will be coming together to make and prepare khapse (a Tibetan/Sherpa biscuit that is traditionally prepared during Losar). Holi is a Hindu festival, also known as the "festival of colours", celebrated in India and Nepal. Dashain and Tihar are two Hindu festivals celebrated every fall. Kite flying is one of the events planned in celebration of these festivals.To commemorate this occasion there will be a “Decorate your kite with a personalized message”.
