Congrats, You're In!

The Congrats, You’re In! Instagram contest is open to any domestic (U.S.) freshman or transfer accepted student with a mailing address within the continental United States. The winner will receive a swag pack with the following SUNY Plattsburgh branded items: zippered tote bag, T-shirt, beanie hat, sunglasses, cell phone card holder and window cling.

How to Enter

To enter, post a photo of you and your acceptance packet on your Instagram page and tag @sunyplattsburgh. Your account must be public for us to see you photo. If you have a private account, DM us (1) a screenshot of your Instagram profile showing the post AND (2) the original photo. You can also email materials to [email protected] if your account is private.

Post only one photo - posting multiple photos will disqualify you from the contest. The photo must include you (the accepted student).

Terms and Conditions

Every domestic accepted student who enters will be considered. By entering the contest, you agree to SUNY Plattsburgh reposting your photo on any of its social media channels and using it in any future marketing materials (print, digital, video, etc.).


The contest runs Thursday, Jan. 24 through 12 noon on Thursday, Feb. 7. The winner will be voted on by the Office of Marketing based on quality of the photo and creativity. The winner will be notified via DM.
