How do I add an event to the calendar?

The SUNY Geneseo events calendar pulls events from the EMS room reservation system.

In-person events with a room reservation will be added to the calendar automatically, but you must fill out the event information form to make sure your listing in the calendar and events newsletter includes a description, photo, and audience info.

If you're hosting an event in a location that doesn't need to be reserved or if your event is online-only, please submit the event directly to the calendar.

Important: If you want your EMS-reserved event to appear in the calendar, you must identify it in EMS as an event or meeting rather a rehearsal, practice, etc.

How do I promote my event?

An newsletter of upcoming events is sent to the entire student body every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the semester. A separate newsletter for faculty and staff is sent every Monday and Wednesday. The sooner you get your event information into the calendar, the more chances you'll have for your event to appear in the newsletter.

My event should be appearing in the calendar. Why don't I see it?

Events submitted to EMS or the calendar need to be manually reviewed and approved before they will appear. Submit your event as early as possible to maximize promotion on the calendar and the events newsletters.

Rehearsals and some types of closed meetings don't appear in the events calendar, but there are links to the EMS calendar of rehearsals and all student org meetings on the calendar homepage.

My event isn't showing up in the newsletter. Why not?

In order for an event to appear in either the faculty and staff or student newsletter, the audience needs to be defined on the event. Make sure to fill out the event information form to define your audience if your event is in EMS or to add the audience information if you submit the event directly to the calendar.

I’m not affiliated with SUNY Geneseo. Can I add an event to the calendar?

No, sorry. The SUNY Geneseo events calendar only displays College events.

I want to communicate something to students or employees that's not really an event. How do I do that?

Please see the internal communications guide for information (Geneseo login required).

How do I save an event I’m interested in?

Log into the calendar using your Geneseo ID or sign up for an account if you're a member of the public. Click "I'm interested" next to any events you want to save.

Can I add events to my Google calendar or iCal?

Yes. On the event page, click on the appropriate calendar application in the "subscribe" section.
