Posting to the Website Calendar

Adding an event to the Bluefield College website is easy and effective.

Not only will the event be displayed on the campus calendar, but it could possibly be on the homepage the day of the event and other areas of the website depending on how the event is categorized.

Assigning Categories

Make sure you assign your event a category. Categories will define where your event appears on the website. For example, if you are adding an information table for online admissions, make sure you choose the category “Bluefield College Online”. Selecting this category will pull the event into the related events list on the Bluefield College Online landing page.
