The best practices outlined below will help ensure your event submission is accurate, engaging, and meaningful to the campus community. Consider these points and offer potential attendees details that are concise yet interesting. 

  • Who: Name the speaker/guest of honor and the sponsor or host of the event, if applicable. Consider including any credentials the speaker holds from trusted organizations, awards they’ve received, and other presentations/works that could be familiar to the audience. 
  • What: Provide a clear title. Explain what the nature of the event is and what the audience can expect. For example, is it a lecture or a musical performance? Is it family-oriented or more appropriate for a mature audience?
  • Where: Provide the location and address of the event, including the full building name and room number, if applicable. For example, use Marano Campus Center, not MCC. Be specific to help avoid confusion for anyone unfamiliar with the venue or area.
  • When: Provide the date and time of the event. Note that for recurring/weekly events, you can submit once and add additional dates within one submission.
  • Why: Offer your potential audience a reason to attend. What will they gain/learn? How will it enrich or benefit them?
  • How: Explain how to register and/or purchase tickets, if applicable. Provide contact information for readers who may want more information.
