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.

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.

The Speaking Project

A safe and relaxing environment where students can come to practice speaking in front of others. Every meeting someone will do a speech and we will have an evaluator to help point out pros and cons of the speech. In addition, we will do impromptus every meeting, however, no one is forced to participate it is all on a volunteer bases.

Memories Campaign

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.

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.

Japanese Culture Club

Japanese Culture Club provides students with the opportunity to learn about Japanese culture through weekly general meetings and occasional club events such as Japan Knight in the fall semester and volunteering at the annual Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C. in the spring semester.

Fishing Club

The mission of Fishing Club is to bring the opportunity of fishing to those that attend SUNY Geneseo. The club will offer opportunities to interested students to get more information on where and how to fish, to earn or build on the hobby of fishing, and provide a welcoming environment to discuss fishing. The club will hold non-mandatory weekly meetings to get together and discuss recent fishing events and plan future events. These meeting will also allow members to meet friends and to catch up on recent fishing. The club will also do one event a semester to help the local watershed. These events could range from fundraising to volunteering. All proceeds will be donated to local conservation groups.

Sisters Making A Change

Sisters Making a Change is a sisterhood that encourages the intellectual, physical, social, and philanthropic development of its members, as well as to be an influential presence in the Geneseo community. We host a number of events throughout the year dedicated to giving back to charities and those in need in our area.

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.

Common Hope at Geneseo

The purpose of Common Hope is to aid the parent organization in its goals of promoting health, wellness, and educational opportunities in Guatemala by means of volunteerism, donations, and fundraising.
