Once you have confirmed a space for your event with USI Scheduling Services, there are several ways you can help promote your event.
Add your event to the University Calendar. Be sure to fill out all fields, especially event descriptions and photo. Only events with descriptions and photos are considered for featured spots on the calendar. Updating the University calendar also ensures that your event will be considered for the following communications channels:
If your event requires photography, make sure you contact Photography and Multimedia to see if a photographer is available and to schedule coverage of your event.
Fill out a SYMON System Request Form to get messages approved to be featured on closed circuit television screens around campus.
Contact Creative and Print Services for help with poster and flyer and yard sign creation and printing. Contact Special Events and Scheduling Services to get posters and flyers approved to be placed on bulletin boards around campus. View a map of approved yard sign locations here.
Use EagleSync, an online management tool USI students use to manage their co-curricular activities at USI. EagleSync can be accessed using your myUSI username and password. The EagleSync app, for both Android and Apple devices, is available for download.
Communicate through social media channels. USI has several official University accounts and hashtags, and many departments have accounts already in place as well. A full list of accounts can be found at www.usi.edu/socialmedia. If you don't find an account that works for you, contact Ben Luttrull, media relations specialist, to see if creating a new account might be a good fit for your area.
