Calendar Style Guide

Short, concise entries are suggested. If you have additional information, such as forms, these materials should be referenced at a provided URL where the information resides.

Every calendar entry must include the following:

  • Name of the event.
  • Date and time of the event. Example: 09/18/2008 03:00 PM
  • Where the event is being held. The building location is a dropdown menu. You also must complete the room number and address. If the building is not available, you may type the location in the "Specific Location" text box.
  • Contact. You must include a department/school/division sponsor as well as a point of contact email and phone number. Do not use individual names. Phone numbers should include the complete 10-digit number, including the area code.
  • Calendar(s) Selection. Every entry will be posted on the master calendar. You can also select other calendar options to maximize your interest audience. (Ex. Encore would select the "Performances" calendar.) Do NOT add your event to calendars that do not pertain to your area.

The remainder of the information should be captured in the narrative/description section.

Who is the audience for the event? (for example, entire Northwest community, students, faculty and staff)
Purpose: Describe the event/program/project
Cost: Note if the event is free or if there is a registration free, when applicable.

Please note, the Northwest online calendar is ONLY for Northwest-sponsored events. Events not sponsored by Northwest are not to be placed on the calendar. With the exception of off-campus alumni functions, events at drinking establishments or at any other venue where alcohol will be consumed are not be permitted to be included in the calendar.
