Submit Calendar Events

How to submit and update  events

  1. Visit:
    Sign in using your WVU Login credentials and click on the button labeled Submit an event.
  2. Populate the event form with as much information as possible and be sure to set a descriptive title, select your department, and complete other classification details as appropriate. You'll also need to include a plain-text summary of your event description for use on the InfoStations digital signage network where indicated.

  3. Click on the button labeled Submit Event to complete your event submission.

Important options to complete when creating an event:

  1. Location - Experience 
    Make sure you're using this field to say if it's In-Person, Virtual, or a Hybrid event
  2. Location - Event Place 
    Type out the name of the building, and it should show up. It doesn't work with location acronym.
  3. Photo
    Ideally, do not use photos with text in the photo. Do use an image that depicts your event, even if it is a more generic stock photo.
  4. Use as many classification types on the event as necessary (event type, topic, etc). The more complete the event is filled out, the more likely it is to be posted on different calendars and promoted throughout WVU.
  5. Departments 
    choose both Eberly College of Arts and Sciences AND your department. 
  6. Keywords - Administrator Only Option
    For common misspellings and SEO, only - these keywords are not going to be visible to the public.
  7. Tags - Administrator Only Option
    Visible to the public. Be sure to use this consistently to label events. Tags can be used to create custom lists on your website. Tags are also useful for ongoing lecture or seminar series, or events that happen often but are not consecutive events.
