for the spring 2021 semester.
Publicizing Your Event
Information you would like to have listed on the Smith, Five College and local media calendars should be submitted through 25Live.
To discuss a story of interest to the Smith community, contact Barbara Solow (at least two weeks in advance of an event) at 413-585-2171 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If your event warrants some feature treatment off campus, contact Stacey Schmeidel, media relations director, 413-595-2191 or email@example.com at least one month in advance to discuss other types of promotion that may be appropriate.
The Grécourt Gate is a site produced by college relations featuring articles about Smith College and its people, their achievements, interesting projects, research and events. Selected content identified by College Relations may be included in eDigest distributions.
A list of notices, events, announcements and exhibitions is distributed every Tuesday and Thursday during the academic year (every Tuesday in the summer) to all Smith e-mail accounts and posted at www.smith.edu/edigest.

Local Media Calendars
To have your event information sent to local media calendars, go to the Resources section of your event, choose the "Publicity" category and select "Publicity–Local Media Calendars." This should be done at least three weeks in advance to accommodate varying deadline schedules.
The Smith College News Office also distributes information to more than 30 local and regional media calendars, such as those printed in The Valley Advocate, Hampshire Life and Five College student newspapers, and those aired on radio stations WFCR and WAMC, and television channels 22 and 40.
Posters for internal events are distributed through campus mail by Copy and Print Services to liaisons at various Smith departments, who are then responsible for hanging new posters and keeping the kiosks up-to-date. They also send posters to student affairs for posting in student houses. There is no charge for this poster distribution; print charges will apply.
