The College Event Calendar on Oxy.edu is the primary online tool for promoting your events.
As the event host/organizer, you are responsible for adding your event to the college calendar. Your calendar event should include a compelling description of your event, the date, time and location, and a high quality photograph or graphic.
Request a web editor training session, after which you will receive a web editor account.
Follow the step-by-step tutorial for adding your calendar event.
NOTE: You calendar event is NOT a space reservation and vice versa. Adding your event to the calendar and reserving space for your event area two separate steps in your event planning process. See the Event Planning Resources.
The College Event Calendar is displayed in several places: the Oxy.edu homepage, MyOxy, the Oxy calendar homepage and department-specific event feeds.

The homepage calendar page at oxy.edu.events displays a feed of today’s events plus three featured upcoming events. To request that your event be featured, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Upcoming Events feed displays the next three events tagged with a sponsoring department/office on the corresponding homepage.
- Events disappear from the list once they pass.
- The event feed hides when there are no events to display.
Calendar filters allow you to view specific types of events. On the calendar homepage there is a dropdown menu for sorting events by both department and category. Event categories are designated when you set up the event listing, as outlined in the Adding a Calendar Event tutorial.
Space reservations must be made through Master Calendar (Resource25).
