Ways To Promote Your Events

CONNECT

  • Baylor CONNECT is the portal for student organizations on campus to manage their members and events. If you are a new Baylor student, one of the first things you should do is to download the OrgSync app on your smart phone and get connected through Baylor Connect.

    If your student group isn't recognized in Baylor CONNECT, it needs to be. CONNECT is also the first place you should consider when it comes to promoting your events on campus. To access this important tool from Baylor Student Activities, click here. Find your organization in 'My Memberships' and hit 'Events' to begin the event registration process.

What's New BU

  • What's New BU is a twice weekly email (Mondays and Fridays) that is sent to almost all 16,000 Baylor University students. The emails are produced by a collaboration of Student Life and Student Learning & Engagement and highlight student life events and activities taking place on campus. If your student organization or department would like to submit events to be featured in these emails, send them to whatsnew@baylor.edu.

Baylor Master Calendar

  • The Baylor University Master Calendar is the calendar that shows up on the main university website. Baylor departments, programs, schools, colleges, and organizations who have a web site on campus should use the events component of the Baylor Content Management System (CMS) to post their events. When this is setup for your department, you may post events to the university calendar. Student organizations can also post their events on the calendar by approving them through the Student Activities event approval system online.

Chapel Slides

  • Email baylor_chapel@baylor.edu with any advertisements you would like to present on the screens in chapel
  • Format your submission in JPEG form at 1920x1080

Chamber Billboards

  • The Baylor Chamber of Commerce offers custom made banners for advertising student events on campus. Banners hang for 5 days each and there are several hanging sites on campus to choose from.
  • Each banner costs $100 plus ink ($0.35 per CC). 
  • Each billboard sign costs $100 plus ink ($0.35 per CC). 
  • For more information including templates, click here, or give Baylor Chamber a call at (254) 710-3322 or stop by their office located next to the Student Government Offices in the basement of the Bill Daniel Student Center.

Digital Signage

  • Approval Process - Files submitted for Digital Signage display are reviewed by the Digital Signage Support group for technical compatibility. Once a file has passed this review, it will be made available to Campus Sign Administrators for display on their signs.
  • Content Deployment - The Digital Signage Support group does not deploy content campus-wide. Instead, each Sign Administrator determines what content is displayed on their assigned signs. If you would like to request that your content be deployed to a specific sign, please contact the HELP desk to determine the appropriate Sign Administrator.
  • Click here to submit content for Digital Signage.

Chalking Sidewalks

  • Campus organizations may advertise a service or an event by writing with chalk (95 percent pure levigated whiting) on Baylor sidewalks and streets, if the text of the advertisement has received prior written permission from the Division of Student Life (Department of Student Activities).
  • Typically chalking is in front of popular on campus buildings (e.g. Dining Halls, SUB, SLC, BSB, Foster, etc.)

Flyers / Posters

  • Most student organizations will hand out flyers at info tables to advertise their events.
  • Flyers and tables must be approved by student activities and reserved through connect.
  • Flyers in residence halls must be processed and distributed by CL&L

Tabling

  • Setting up a table for promoting your group or activity is allowed in several places on campus. In general, the rules and specific reservation requirements vary by location.
  • For the SUB (Bill Daniel Student Center), click here
  • For the BSB (Baylor Sciences Building), click here.

Baylor Lariat

  • The Baylor Lariat is the student newspaper at Baylor University.
  • You can pay to place an advertisement in the Lariat. Click here for more information. 
  • You can also make the Lariat aware of your event in advance. They "may" choose to do an article about your event, though this is at their discretion.
