How do I promote my event on the public campus calendar at events.fredonia.edu?

Before you submit an event:

  • If you are submitting an event that will be booked in a on-campus venue, such as a classroom or other campus space, you must reserve the room in the EMS venue management system, before submitting your event to EVENTS @ FREDONIA.
  • The office of Campus Life (fredonia.edu/campuslife) can help you reserve the room, before promoting your event.
  • Event submissions to EVENTS @ FREDONIA are subject to review and verification. 
  • No events will appear automatically on the public calendar without approval of the Events Calendar Manager.
  • Before submitting your event, please use the search field at the top, and/or mini calendar on the right side to see if your event already exists on the EVENTS calendar.
