New way to submit events to CampusMemo
CampusMemo will now pick up event listings directly from the University Calendar to streamline the events publicity function for campus units. Departments interested in publicizing an event in CampusMemo simply need to register the event on the University Calendar by 10 a.m. on Wednesday of the previous week. To submit an event, go to http://www.sfsu.edu/calendar/ and click on "Submit an Event" in the left-hand navigation bar. This new procedure saves event sponsors the extra step of entering information specifically for CampusMemo, and the later deadline for submittal allows more time for event sponsors to submit their items to CampusMemo.
