Student Bulletin Instructions

Do you have information to share with students? Post your notices to the Student Bulletin!

Your postings could include:

  • Opportunities for student engagement.
  • Books for sale.
  • Changes in class meeting times or locations.
  • New employees to your office (even if they aren't new to the college) - especially if they work directly with students.
  • Professional development milestones (publication of a book, journal articles, awards, etc) - yes students like to know when faculty and staff excel at what they do. Excellence builds pride.
  • Congratulations to an individual or team for a competition or event.
  • Business process updates or changes that students need to know. Does your office get a lot of students who ask the same question? Answer the question in the Student Bulletin so students can stay informed.
  • Scholarship opportunities.
  • Federal Work Study positions open.
  • Career and employment opportunities.
  • Blackboard or SIS outages.
  • Retirement announcements.
  • And much more!

A few things to remember:

  • Postings should be short and to the point (think about the basics that would get your attention)
  • No graphics or tables (the bulletins are emails; graphics and tables take up server space)
  • If a posting is not for the next day, include the run date at the top of the message (ex. Please run on 11/30)
  • Postings must be submitted no later than noon the day prior (postings submitted on Friday will run on Monday)
  • No bulletins are sent on Saturday, Sunday or any day the college is closed
  • You can subscribe to the Student Bulletin http://www.virginiawestern.edu/services/bulletin/
