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.

International Youth and Students for Social Equality

Young people, including students, face a dangerous future. The fraudulent economic “recovery” is worsening for the vast majority of the population. Imperialist war, even a nuclear World War III, looms around the corner. Climate change threatens the entire planet. These threats and others demonstrate that capitalism is a system in crisis, incapable of creating a decent future for youth, students, and workers everywhere. \n\nThe SUNY Geneseo chapter of the International Youth and Students for Social Equality seeks to mobilize students and young workers in the struggle for the only viable alternative to capitalism: socialism. The IYSSE is dedicated to the defense of democratic rights, opposition to war, and the arming of students, youth, and workers with a socialist perspective. To do so, we hold weekly meetings to engage students and workers and orient members toward the working class. \n\nAll interested people are welcome to attend meetings, regardless of major or enrollment status. Meetings include a political report on recent events given by an IYSSE member, highlighting relevant historical and theoretical issues. These reports and subsequent discussion are integral to our perspective for work on campus. Organizational matters, including planning events, are considered after discussion.

Caribbean Student Association

CSA hosts weekly meetings to discuss topics relating to the Caribbean. This organization also hosts dance workshops, fundraisers, J'ouvert and our annual dinner.

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.

Council for Exceptional Children

The Council for Exceptional Children is a professional association of educators dedicated to advancing the success of children with exceptionalities. We accomplish our mission through advocacy, standards, and professional development. Club opportunities involve volunteering in weekly special olympics practices, having pen pals, listening to guest speakers, and other things as such.

Astronomy Club

The purpose of Astronomy Club is to enhance the interest in and knowledge of astronomy among Geneseo students through weekly meetings and events. Events that include the use of telescopes and the planetarium, along with trips to larger planetariums and other learning centers, will give members the opportunity to engage in active learning. Astronomy Club seeks to provide members with the opportunity to learn alongside a community of their peers who share their love and enthusiasm for astronomy.

Hillel at Geneseo

Main religious holidays are observed, Shabbat, Passover, Hanukah, etc.. We have weekly Shabbat services--they include reciting traditional prayers, songs, and the weekly Torah portion. Following services we have dinner together, usually following some sort of theme either relating to the weekly Torah portion, a holiday, or current events surrounding our faith. Our purpose is to unify people in a period of intense polarization. We are a Jewish organization but we welcome and encourage those who are not Jewish. We have a wide variety of students that attend our events and we are proud to foster such a comfortable environment. \n\nDirectly from the website: \n- Mission: Enriching the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. \n- Our Vision: We envision a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel.

Student Coalition for Migrant Workers

By holding weekly meetings, hosting outreach events, and opening up the dialogue over immigration issues on campus, the goal of this club is to expose students to these issues which will hopefully lead them to become responsible citizens taking on an active role in discussion and community outreach programs. As a club, we have three pillars that will help us execute the mission of the organization: \n\n1) Cultural and community engagement \n2) Social justice and advocacy \n3) Language exchange program \n\nWe believe the best way to serve this community is to have a comprehensive framework in which students are encouraged to utilize their unique skills such as educational and linguistic skills and apply them in these areas best fit for serving the immigrant community.

  • Meet Times:
    Weekly on Mondays at 6:00 PM in Bailey Room 201

Women's Club Soccer
