Submit Your Event or Program

<p><strong>Hosting an event during the first week of school&nbsp;and want to get the word out?</strong>&nbsp;<em>Submit your event or program to be included on our Welcome Week 2019 calendar!</em>&nbsp;</p>

<p>Adding your event to the calendar can boost awareness of not only your event but your group, as well. These events are included on the Welcome Week website&nbsp;and OwlConnect&nbsp;which are heavily advertised. We also widely share these events through university social media.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Our goal is to showcase as many events&nbsp;as possible during the first&nbsp;week of classes. University entities like &nbsp;Leadership Development, UHRL&nbsp;and IDEAL have all seen direct results from both hosting an event during Welcome Week and promoting it through the calendar.</p>

<p><strong>To submit your event or program, please&nbsp;use the submission form below.</strong></p>

<p><strong>The preferred deadline is July 9. The final deadline is August 2.</strong></p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">When is Welcome Week?</div>

<p>&nbsp;Great question! Welcome Week 2019 is August 18-24.</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">Who can submit an event&nbsp;the Welcome Week calendar?</div>

<p xmlns:ouc="http://omniupdate.com/XSL/Variables">Any university office, department or university agency can submit an event to be included on the Welcome Week calendar. Events must be during the Welcome Week time frame (August 18-24).</p>

<p xmlns:ouc="http://omniupdate.com/XSL/Variables">Local businesses or community groups are not permitted to submit an event using this form, at this time. If you are a local group and have an interest in participating in Welcome Week, please contact <a href="mailto:phillip.smith@temple.edu?subject=Welcome%20Week%20Question">Phillip Smith</a> for more information.</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">What types of information are required to submit an event?&nbsp;</div>

<p>All of the basics - name, date, time, location, etc.</p>

<p>All events must provide a detailed description of the event&nbsp;as well as a link to the event listed in&nbsp;OwlConnect or on a university website with more information. We also ask you have a primary point of contact for your event, as well. Those contacts will be listed on the online calendar to assist individuals who may have specific questions related to the event.</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">Can I bulk submit my list of events?&nbsp;</div>

<p>Please contact <a href="mailto:phillip.smith@temple.edu?subject=Welcome%20Week%20Question">Phillip Smith</a> to discuss submitting your events in bulk.</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">What can you provide to help our event?&nbsp;</div>

<p xmlns:ouc="http://omniupdate.com/XSL/Variables">Our program can guarantee you cross-promotion for your event through the use of our website, the Student Activities&nbsp;social media, and the Welcome Week guide on the Temple app.</p>

<p xmlns:ouc="http://omniupdate.com/XSL/Variables">It is the responsibility and expectation of any&nbsp;sponsoring group to run their program, fund their program, reserve any spaces or needs and additionally promote their event.</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">I have a great idea but I do not have the budget. Is there anything I can do?&nbsp;</div>

<p>&nbsp;If you are a university entity seeking financial support, you may contact <a href="mailto:phillip.smith@temple.edu?subject=Welcome%20Week%20Question">Phillip Smith</a>&nbsp;to see if there is any co-sponsorship opportunity. However, there is no guarantee.</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">Where will I be able to find my event listing?&nbsp;&nbsp;</div>

<p>&nbsp;All approved events submitted via the submission form will be featured on the Student Activities&nbsp;website and the Welcome Week guide on the Temple&nbsp;app.</p>

<p xmlns:ouc="http://omniupdate.com/XSL/Variables">Events open to the entire campus may appear on the printed materials distributed for Welcome Week. However, there is no guarantee at this time.</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">Can I submit an event or program after the preferred deadline?&nbsp;</div>

<p>Yes! Events submitted after the preferred deadline will get added to the website and app. However, you will likely miss consideration for any printed materials. We also can&#39;t guarantee we will be able to add your event to the Temple app and website if submitted after our July 24&nbsp;final deadline.&nbsp;</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">Does my event have to be free in order to be listed?&nbsp;</div>

<p>While we strongly encourage you to make your event FREE to any current Temple student, it does not have to be free in order to be listed. We ask you to put the information about any fees associated with your event in your submission. Your description should provide information about how to pay the fee including any registration processes.&nbsp;</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">How do I get my event listed on the campus-wide activities calendar</div>

<p>The calendar is generated through event listings created within OwlConnect. Your submission through this form does not automatically add your event to OwlConnect. However, setting your area/department&nbsp;up with an OwlConnect portal is easy!&nbsp;If you are interested, please contact <a href="mailto:sydney.lobosco@temple.edu?subject=Departmental%20OwlConnect%20Acc... Lobosco</a>&nbsp;for a consultation about how we can use OwlConnect to maximize your event promotion.&nbsp;</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">How can I track who attends my event for future assessment or promotion needs?&nbsp;</div>

<p>It&#39;s easy! OwlConnect allows your office/department the ability to easily swipe students into events with their OwlCard. If your group does not have an OwlConnect portal, it takes just minutes to set one up. If you are interested,&nbsp;please contact <a href="mailto:sydney.lobosco@temple.edu?subject=Departmental%20OwlConnect%20Acc... Lobosco</a>&nbsp;for a consultation about how we can use OwlConnect to maximize your event promotion and for information on how to track attendance at events in OwlConnect.</p>

<div class="ready-accordion">I still have more questions! Who should I contact?&nbsp;</div>

<p>Please contact Phillip Smith, Director for Student Activities with any additional questions. He can be reached at&nbsp;<a href="mailto:phillip.smith@temple.edu?subject=Welcome%20Week%20Question">Phillip Smith</a>&nbsp;or call the Student Activities office at 215-204-7131</p>
