Please read carefully to ensure that your information is correctly submitted and forwarded to the appropriate area for publication.

We utilize various methods to communicate information about university programs and services to students.

  1. Absolute deadline is Thursday at Noon to appear in the following Saturday's email.
  2. The Student News and Events email is sent weekly to all students and is scheduled to arrive on Saturday morning. Faculty and Staff do not receive this e-mail.
  3. Our goal is to provide fresh new information to students each week to maintain interest and readership. With this in mind, announcements cannot run two consecutive weeks. Announcements may only be repeated TWO WEEKS after the previous announcement. There is a maximum of three runs for an announcement.
  4. Please review the General Posting Guidelines that follow for additional information about submissions and postings.
  5. Student Events Calendar:
    We no longer have a separate Student News and Events Calendar since UofL has launched a new events marketing calendar. This new calendar is the official events calendar for UofL.
    • With the new calendar, you can view the events by type, date, campus, department, and even by audience (students, community, etc.)
    • There is a place on the front page of the new calendar to submit events for listing. Check it out here: Events Calendar.
  6. Student Activities Center Digital Signage System:
    TV monitors display university-wide news, activities and upcoming events.
    • No text submissions are accepted for this medium. A display-ready copy must be attached to this submission form. Examples of acceptable display ready copy include: Power Point slide or pdf file. The variety of file formats as well as various compatibility issues do not permit us to guarantee successful animation of submissions.
    • Submissions should be received at least FIVE business days in advance of the beginning post time.
    • Submissions are posted for a ONE WEEK period. Announcements with specific dates, that are requested to start more than a week before the event date, will be started at the discretion of the person posting the announcement.
    • Our goal is to provide fresh new information to students and maintain interest and readership. With this in mind, announcements may be repeated only after TWO WEEKS have passed from the previous announcement. There is a maximum of three runs for an announcement.
    • Please review the General Posting Guidelines that follow for additional information about submissions and postings.
