Whether you have a student, faculty or staff member to recognize for an accomplishment, or an event you want to spread the word about, all it takes is one news story to make it happen.

Join the Office of Marketing & Communications from 2-3 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3, in the Orientation Room at the Eunice and James L. West Library for a session on how to get your stories the most attention.

Neph Rivera, university communications specialist, will give you some basic tips on news writing so your story is as readable as can be, as well as explain what the social media team looks for when selecting stories to share on the university’s social media channels.

Interested in being featured as a faculty expert?

Ann Davis, senior director of communications, will explain how to be best prepared to give an interview as a faculty expert. She’ll give a quick overview on how to dress, how to answer questions and how to address a question you may not know an answer to, among other topics to help you stand out as an expert in your field.

Snacks will be provided, so be sure to come to this fun and informative session.
