Posters: since we will no longer be able to hang posters on walls, please ensure any oversize posters are no larger than two poster boards (each poster board is 42" x 36"). We will not be able to display posters larger than this. A standard size poster is 42" x 36." Posters must be submitted to the Duplicating Center by April 10th to be printed for GREAT Day. 

Lunch vouchers: Thanks to the generous support of Student Association, Jack '76 and Carol '76 Kramer, and CAS, student participants (including volunteers as well as presenters) and faculty sponsors will have $15 credited to their ID card to use to pay for lunch/food/drink during GREAT Day. This replaces a buffet lunch; please provide your G# when you submit to GREAT Day to receive this credit. Faculty sponsors will receive a $15 CAS gift card to be used at any establishment on campus serviced by CAS.

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.
