OSU Today submission guidelines

Today in the News Media

Today in the News Media is a synopsis of some of the most prominent coverage of OSU people and programs. Inclusion of any item constitutes neither an endorsement nor a critique, but rather is intended only to make the OSU community aware of significant items in the media.

How to submit an item for inclusion

Items may be submitted to osutoday@oregonstate.edu. The item, which can be an event, news headline, lecture or seminar or other newsworthy item, must be connected to an OSU program, department or organization. Most community events, even if they include an OSU faculty member or student, will not be included unless the event is sponsored in part by an OSU affiliated group. OSU Today is assembled daily and does not draw automatically from any OSU calendar or other source. Items must be submitted via email for inclusion. Do NOT send them via PDF. Text only. See below for specific guidelines on submission types and formats.

Upcoming Events/ Lectures and Seminars

Submissions to “Upcoming Events” and “Lectures and seminars” must be under 60 words and must include time, date, location and admission price, if any.  Submissions must include a short bolded headline. Hyperlinks may be included. Events must have a direct Oregon State connection and be open to the entire OSU community.

Due to space constraints, items will appear for no longer than three days running (including the day of the event). If an event has an early registration, or is expected to fill up quickly, a request can be made to run an item for three days in a row, and then removed and run again immediately before the event. Please specify if this is the case in your submission.

Sample submission:

Science of winemaking lecture: Linda Bisson, professor in the Department of Viticulture & Enology at the University of California-Davis, will give the 2011 James M. Craig Lecture on “The Scientific Art of Winemaking: Grapes Rotted to Perfection.” She will speak on April 13 from 7 to 8 p.m. in the LaSells Stewart Center.

News for Employees

Submissions to “News for Employees” must be under 75 words and must include information on the targeted audience (students, staff, faculty), appropriate links, deadline dates and contact information. Submissions must include a short bolded headline. Hyperlinks may be included. Typically an item here will run three to five days depending on space.

Sample submission:
