Connecting with Students
Connecting with students is a primary needs for our student-facing units. Whether you want to promote events or recruit applicants to your programs, here are some of the main channels.
Student Housing and Dining Services:
Connect with thousands of first-year students living in campus residence halls using the channels offered on the Reaching the Residents website.
You will find instructions and timelines for sharing information in the residence halls and dining commons via LCD monitors, half-sheet flyers, a weekly e-newsletter, and tabling.
Student Affairs Marketing and Communications:
SAMC manages LCD screens in the MU and other campus locations; the Updater on MyUCDavis; the Student Life events calendar; and UC Davis Life Facebook and Instagram accounts. Their monthly newsletter, UC Davis Life, is specific to Student Affairs units and does not accept non-SA requests.
- Submit items for the Updater and social media pates through the SAMC Share News Request Form
- Request to post on LCD monitors in the MU and other locations
- Student Life calendar: To add your event to this calendar, add @ucdavislife as a co-organizer for your event. It will automatically appear in the feed.
UE-Originated Direct Communications to Students:
UE units may now request to send mass e-mails to students. Your post must be approved by the AVP-UE prior to making your data request. Please see the Sending Mass Emails information for the process. You may create emails using an email client such as MailChimp, Emma, or Constant Contact. You can also use campus bulk mail, which is free but does not allow formatting of any kind.
NEW! UE Monthly Newsletter
UE is launching a monthly newsletter to share education-focused opportunities and stories! Do you have a timely feature, an event to promote, or a student profile to share? Submit your story request here. Requests should be made no later than two weeks before the publication.
