Have a Story to Tell or Event to Promote?

We help write and share news releases, and post campus news in the media section of the website and often share them via social media. 

For events, email the Who, What, When, Where and Why!
Reporters prefer to receive news releases 10-14 days in ahead, so please three or more weeks before your event.  

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

For student and alumni stories, email us and include details as to why the person should be highlighted and other background that may be helpful. We'll follow up and keep you informed as to the status of your story idea.
