Publicizing Events

Each year Colby plays host to hundreds if not thousands of events that are open to the public. Publicity is the responsibility of the event sponsor, and on-campus publicity is by far the most important component for generating an audience. The Office of Communications does not issue press releases on request, nor are press releases usually effective for recruiting an audience. Communications is available to consult with event organizers about publicity possibilities.

Events that are of interest to outside audiences and are open to the general public may be included on monthly and weekly calendars of events. Click here for details about calendar deadlines.
