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.

Political Affairs Club

PAC is the political science department's resident academic club. We hold and conduct peer advisement, run events such as trivia tournaments and DC networking trips, and meet weekly to discuss current US, international, and political news. We hope to help political science students and the Geneseo student body as a whole remain aware and informed of the goings-on in the world around them.

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.

History Club at Geneseo

We meet weekly and regularly discuss "This Day in History," as well as historical connections to current events. Additionally, we have recently incorporated more game & trivia nights, all historically themed (i.e. Jeopardy, Family Feud-style history games). This coming year, we plan on diversifying our events even more, taking trips, collaborating with professors, etc.

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).
