Where to Find Event Listings
Events posted to the Colgate campus calendar are automatically displayed in the following locations:
- The calendar at calendar.colgate.edu.
- Event listings are present at the bottom of every page on www.colgate.edu
- Twice weekly e-mails are sent to everyone on campus on Monday and Thursday mornings.
- Colgate's mobile app (iPhone and Android) features a calendar populated with events from the main campus calendar. Web version at m.colgate.edu
Adding Events to the Calendar
Everyone on campus has the ability to submit an event to the campus calendar
. The process varies depending on the type of event, and your relationship to the university.
Adding an Image to Your Event
You may include an image with your event listing. The maximum width of any image is 350 px. The calendar does not host images, so any image you include must be uploaded to the internet elsewhere. When creating your event right click on an online image, choose "Copy image URL," and paste the URL in the Image URL
If the image you want to include is not already on the internet, a free and easy tool for getting images online can be found at www.imgur.com
Contacts and Locations
All events must be given a contact and a location. When submitting an event, you will be able to select from drop-down menus pre-populated with contacts and locations around campus. If your contact or location is not listed, regular users will have the option to write in a new option.
Calendar managers who need to add a new contact or location are able to do so from the main menu of the calendar management screen. SEE EXAMPLE
Canceling an Event
If an event already on the calendar has been canceled, please do not simply delete it from the calendar. Instead, edit the event and change its status from "Confirmed" to "Canceled
." For assistance canceling an event, use the web help form
