How to use the Calendar of University Events to promote your event


The start of a new semester at Ohio University often means looking ahead on the calendar to check dates and schedule activities. If you're planning events for your organization or group, or have one you think would be of interest to the University community, consider using the OHIO Calendar of University Events (CUE) to spread the word.

The current calendar is slated to undergo a major makeover in an effort to bring information about all activities and events in the University community to one convenient location online. While work is beginning to develop the new CUE, the group charged with creating an easy, efficient tool wants to know what users like and dislike about the current calendar.

"We need everyone's help to make the calendar a valuable tool for the University and Athens communities. Improvements are on the way and will be ongoing, but we need to use the current calendar to help us make the best decisions during the upgrade process," said Renea Morris, executive director of University Communications and Marketing.

The process to submit a calendar event is simple:

  • Anyone with an active OHIO ID and password can add OHIO events by visiting ohio.edu/calendar/submit to login (popups must be enabled for ohio.edu in your browser)
  • Fill out the resulting form with all relevant information. Be sure to include the event title, date and time, location, a brief description and contact information for someone who can answer questions about the event. Also, indicate if the sponsoring group is a University department or a student organization.
  • Submissions are moderated and will be edited for style and grammatical correctness
  • Generally, on-campus events that are open to the public will be approved

An added benefit of submitting an event or activity to the CUE is gaining additional exposure via social media. The official CUE Twitter handle, @OHIO_CUE, spotlights events in daily "Today @ohiou" tweets. These messages are sent between 9 and 9:30 a.m. on weekdays and at 10 a.m. on weekends. The events featured in these tweets are selected from those added to the CUE. The account has more than 1,000 followers and the daily tweets are often retweeted to the more than 37,000 follower of the University's primary @ohiou account.
