There is nothing more vital to community than communication. Because full-time Huntingdon students receive laptop computers and are connected to the College Web site as their homepage and by Huntingdon's e-mail system, there are many ways to receive and dissemminate information through the College's Office of Communication, Flowers 103; email@example.com. Here are a few important things you need to know:
The Office of Communications maintains the College Web site. If you are searching for information on the Web that you can't find, please let us know. We strive to make the site accessible and easily navigable and would love to know your feedback. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Certain sections of the site, described below, are especially helpful in keeping up-to-date with Huntingdon happenings.
Important information and pertinent announcements are posted under the Announcements section of the College Web site, to the left of the screen and below the navigation bars on nearly every page.
Calendar of Events
A link to the College's Calendar of Events is posted just below the Announcements section, to the left of the screen and below the navigation bars on nearly every page of the Web site. Note that at the bottom of the calendar page you can sort events based on several categories. Be sure that you sort events based on "All" if you want to see everything that has been posted to the Calendar.
Facebook and Twitter
Links to the College's Facebook and Twitter pages are posted just below the Calendar link. Become a fan of Huntingdon on the Facebook page to see photos and timely information posted on that site.
E-Communications and News
The College publishes a weekly e-newsletter, The Talon, that is dissemminated by e-mail to traditional day students, faculty, and staff, and to alumni, friends, neighbors, and parents who ask to be included on the the distribution list and posted on the homepage at the time of publishing; archived under About Huntingdon/Communications and Media/Monday Messages. To request inclusion on an e-distribution list if you are not a full-time student, faculty, or staff member, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your relationship to the College through one of the aforementioned categories. If you are a parent, it is helpful to know your student's name, as well. To submit news, send an email to email@example.com.
News releases are archived on the Communications and Media section of the College Web site under About Huntingdon; the most recent releases and/or The Talon will appear on the homepage of the Web site. Releases are also copied to key e-mail audiences and distribution lists as described above under Monday Messages.
The Sports Information office is part of the Department of Athletics. Athletics news is posted under the Athletics section of the Web site. You may sign up to receive athletics news releases by sending an e-mail to the sports information director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Communication is happy to serve students and families in telling the good news going on around campus. If your club or organization is planning an event, be sure you post the event on the main calendar by submitting an Event Request Form to the Office of Travel and Event Planning (Tricia Grier); and then be sure you publicize it to the College community by submitting it to the Office of Communications by sending an email to email@example.com. Your publicity request must include the event title, the name of the group hosting the event, the purpose or content of the event, the date, time, place, and cost of the event, and how to RSVP, if necessary. Be sure to include an event contact person's e-mail and phone number in the request.
The Office of Communications is always interested in publishing good photography of campus events. High resolution photos are necessary for print media; lower resolution photos can be used on the Web only. If you have a photo that you would like to give to the Office of Communication for publishing consideration, simply send it by email to Su Ofe at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure you indicate what the photo depicts and who shot it. Please recognize that we cannot always give photo credit to the photographer and the College has the right to use the photo in any way deemed suitable once the photo has been submitted, with no compensation paid to photographers. To request photos for use in publications or to send a request for a photographer to be present at an event, send an email for that purpose, as well.
Huntingdon College Magazine
Huntingdon College Magazine is published annually near the end of the calendar year and is distributed on-campus and mailed to alumni, friends, and parents of current students. You may also read it online. The magazine is produced by the Office of Communications.
The Office of Communications produces numerous College publications for use in College marketing, including posters, brochures, and materials used by the Office of Admission. If your office or organization is in need of a poster or brochure, contact the Office of Communications so that we can discuss your needs and determine the most appropriate way to meet those needs.
The Office of Communications, Flowers 103, is womaned by Su Ofe, associate vice president for communication and marketing. Stop by and say hello!
