The purpose of UAA is to foster a sense of class affinity, college spirit and overall Geneseo pride.
We value and promote our traditions while educating undergraduates on the benefits of a life-long relationship with Geneseo.

Mission Statement

Since 1976, UAA has promoted the relationship between students and alumni. Under the guidance of the Alumni Relations Office and with the financial support of the Alumni Association of the State University College at Geneseo, Inc. Endowment for Student and Alumni Engagement, UAA is dedicated to engaging every Geneseo student.  The goals of UAA are to promote school spirit, preserve and document Geneseo traditions and endorse meaningful connections between students and alumni.  Members develop an understanding of the value of a lasting bond with Geneseo and are prepared to be effective and supportive alumni for life.
