Homepage Calendar Event Guidelines

Criteria for Adding an Event to the homepage "Upcoming Events" section:

To add a listing to the Calendar on the homepage, the following criteria must be met:

  • The event must appeal to the student body, prospective students or the Tarleton community at large and promote the university's mission and QEP.
  • The event must be a large-scale type of event.
  • The event must be sponsored by an official campus department or unit or a recognized (registered) student group.
  • The event must be scheduled in an authorized University facility.
  • Certain off-campus events may also be posted if sponsored by a Tarleton department or program. These may include arts and entertainment events sponsored by the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, events for prospective students, and other events that further the mission of the University. Posting of such events is at the discretion of the designated Calendar Administrator.
  • Each event submission must include an event title, campus sponsor, date, time, location, and cost, if applicable, as well as a contact name, phone number, and e-mail address.
  • The event should not duplicate another event listing.
