Campus Events - Information and Changing Your Preferences

The Google Group is used for sending information about events to the campus community.  New faculty, staff and students are automatically added as they join the Union Community.  

Process for release of messages sent to <>

If you'd like a message distributed via, email your message in the exact format and wording as you want it to be seen to  Do not include any messages to the moderator in that message.  Your message will get distributed exactly as it is sent - the moderator has no edit ability.  The moderator can only approve for distribution or reject it.

Messages will be released three times a day

  • once in the morning at around 9 am,
  • once in the afternoon at around 12 noon, and
  • once in the evening at around 4:30 pm. 

All messages received up to that point in time will be released.  The schedule will be followed on week days (Monday through Friday) only.  As a general practice, messages will not be released on weekends.

Only one message per day will be released about an individual event so please do not send multiple reminders in a single day.  Please plan accordingly to send reminders about weekend events by the Friday before the event.
