Spread the Word!
We understand that your events are important and we want to help you get the word out. There are a few ways to post your upcoming events on the WKU Events Calendar, and we can help! Please read on for details using the links below:
ITEMS WE NEED FROM YOU:
Name of your event
Date, or date range
Time of your event (start time and finish time, if you know your finish time)
Location of your event (Building, room number)
Event details (What is your event for? Who are you expecting to attend? Is it swipeable? Parking or dining service accommodation information; Do you require advance RSVP? Do you need to provide directions to campus?)
Image or photograph associated with your event (flyer or web ad) If you need a graphic, our office can create one for you. The WKU Publications Team needs a minimum of two-weeks notice to create a graphic for you.
You may submit a publications request online and we will get started!
Contact name, phone number and email address of who attendees should contact for more info about your event
URL of website or webpage to associate with this event for additional details
Any additional relevant information pertinent to your event
BOOKING A ROOM OR FACILITY FOR YOUR EVENT:
If you need to book a campus room or facility for your event, please contact the person in your college or department who is responsible for making room reservations using the ASTRA software. This is typically someone in your main or / dean's office. OR you may contact WKU CAMPUS AND COMMUNITY EVENTS to make facility reservations.
PLACING YOUR EVENT ON THE CALENDAR:
If you are an ASTRA user, please follow this procedure to place your event on the WKU Events Calendar.
If you are not an ASTRA user and you need to place a one-time event on the calendar,
please complete this brief information form to place your event on the WKU Events Calendar.
PROMOTING YOUR EVENT:
WKU Creative Web Services and WKU News have many ways to help you spread the word about your upcoming event.
WKU Creative Web Services offers complimentary digital advertising packages for on-campus departments and groups for event promotion. Using a combination of Web, Digital Signage, and Social Media advertising, we can help you spread the word.
You may use the News Module available through your department's website to create a news item about your upcoming event that WKU News will then share. You may also use your existing social media outlets (departmental Facebook, Twitter, etc., to share your news post about your event). Contact WKU Creative Web Services and we will share and retweet the information you have already posted about your event. You may also contact WKU News for formal press release information for large-scale events.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist you.
