Requirements

  • Oswego Today is intended to communicate non-critical, college-related information to all students and employees of SUNY Oswego. It is not intended for the communication of strictly personal, confidential or non-college-related information.
  • Oswego Today is an official communication that uses a third-party vendor to distribute emails. All faculty, staff, and students are automatically signed up for and maintained on the list. We update our campus-wide email list regularly, and therefore you will continue to receive Oswego Today, should you unsubscribe. 
  • Due to the volume of submissions and the need to schedule Oswego Today emails as efficiently as possible, please submit your information three to five business days in advance of your desired run date.
  • In the interest of keeping content fresh and reducing duplicate submissions, our policy is to provide one announcement per upcoming event, series or deadline. This ensures a streamlined presentation of announcements and news of value.
  • Campus-wide email submissions are reserved for critical information that needs to be communicated broadly to faculty, staff and students, and/or is time sensitive.
