GREAT Day 2023

GREAT Day is a college-wide symposium celebrating the creative and scholarly endeavors of our students. GREAT Day (Geneseo Recognizing Excellence, Achievement & Talent) helps foster academic excellence, encourages professional development and builds connections within the community. 

In 2023, GREAT Day will be Wednesday April 26th; classes will not meet on this day.


All students are encouraged to participate and may do so using a number of formats:

  • Artwork
  • Dance performances

  • Instrumental performances
  • Poster presentations
  • Powerpoint presentations
  • Paper presentations
  • Readings of creative works, including poetry, prose, and fiction
  • Vocal performances
  • Theatrical performances

Students must submit a 100 to 250-word abstract to participate. For the 2023 GREAT Day, abstract submissions are due Friday, March 24, 2023. The deadline for submitting posters to be printed is Monday, April 10th. 

SUNY Geneseo stands on land that once belonged to the peoples who are now the Seneca Nation of Indians and the Tonawanda Seneca Nation. We recognize that this territorial acknowledgment is by itself inadequate, and by itself an empty gesture, without action on all our parts to work together to overcome and remedy a long legacy of violence, dispossession, and exploitation. We have much work left to do. You may consider using the Native Land app and/or websites such as to learn more about the community of more than 7,000 enrolled Indigenous Peoples.
