Marketing + Communication

The Office of Marketing and Communication (OMC) supports all of campus, managing and sharing information about Hastings College across all types of media and audiences. We prepare and distribute information about the College and students to news media; produce College publications, including HC Today; create letterhead and business cards; manage; produce recruiting and other videos; manage marketing campaigns; operate the College's official social media handles; and more.

OMC uses a help desk ticketing system (find it here or email to open a ticket), but you are always welcome to stop by our office in Gray Center (Room 130) or contact anyone on our team for support (see below).

Have a Story to Tell or Event to Promote?

If you have a campus event to promote, we can help write and share news releases. We also post campus releases in the media section of the website and often share them via social media.

For events media may cover, complete email to create a ticket or Reporters prefer to receive news releases 10-14 days in advance, so it is best to reach out to us three or more weeks out — but we understand sometimes that is not possible and will do our best to get the message out and work with media.

Posters/Flyers: Our interns and the Center for Applied Media Arts can help create posters/flyers for your event.

For student and alumni success stories, please create a ticket by emailing and include details as to why the person should be highlighted and other background that may be helpful. We will follow up with you and keep you informed as to the status of your story idea.

Logos and Brand Guide

Hastings College logos and our brand guide can be found here.

The Hastings College crimson can vary in screen/digital uses (computers, TVs, phones). To solve this, we use a hex code (#990000) for our crimson in these places.

Logos for electronic/digital use are marked "web" in the above link. Let us know if you need a logo for digital/electronic use that is not included.

Questions about logo use? Need approval for apparel or flyers? Concerned your crimson t-shirts may not be crimson? Open a ticket / or contact us (see below).
