Tips for Advertise Your Departmental Student Club Meetings & Events

  • Add your public event to the College of Education & Human Services and the University Calendar so that it pops up on the  WIU website, COEHS website and onto the list of events as folks do the central signon to log into email, WesternOnline, etc. Click for here for the submission form
  • Add your student event to  Leatherneck Link  by using the Event Registration option - Contact the Office of Student Engagement for assistance.
  • Print posters (handouts) and request posting permission in each building. For Horrabin Hall, connect with Lisa Turke in the Dean's Office (Horrabin Hall 117).
  • Send an email campus announcement. Student Announcements are sent on Mondays as a single weekly digest email combine listings of timely relevant information for the campus in a concise format. Submissions must be received before noon on the preceding Friday.  Click here to submit an announcement!

  • Submit your graphic file to for the College of Education & Human Services (COEHS) digital bulletin boards (tv screens) in Brophy, Currens, Horrabin, and Knoblauch Halls. Here are a few tips!
File Type: PNG or MP4 file (no longer than 20 seconds for the individual MP4 files); PDF files don't work because the software we use is for graphic files.
Graphic Size & Orientation: 16:19 Aspect Ratio (Presentation 16:9 layout in Canva works best) Vertical designs don't work well because tv monitors are horizontal. If you used Canva, you can resize (or "copy & resize").
Design Tips:
  • Stay within the designated border perimeter within Canva so that your information is not cut off. The floating pink border indicates this parameter.
  • Use large text - 90+ pt font allows people to see the words as they walk down the hallway.
  • QR codes rather than email addresses or URLs allows people to quickly access more details using their phone camera.
