Campus Communications Resources

Warren Wilson Inside
The hub for campus information is the Warren Wilson Inside page. Warren Wilson Inside contains daily news and announcements as well as links to campus resources such as the events calendar, CampusWeb, web mail, the library website, academic pages, electronic bulletin boards and other sites. If you have a computer in your dorm room or office, set the Inside page as your browser's home page: http://www.warren-wilson.edu/internal/index.php. To access the College's public website, click the tree.

A monthly e-newsletter with features, events, and news sent to students, employees, parents, alumni and friends of the College. To read the e-newsletter follow this link.

Visual Identity and Editorial Style Guide - PDF
A clear and recognizable presentation of the College can go a long way toward communicating effectively with our audiences. Visual identity standards provide direction to those responsible for creating publications, advertisements and products that represent the College. They also help campus communicators, College Press personnel and contract graphic designers/printers consistently reproduce the name, colors and logo of the College.

Planning campus events
The online campus events calendar is operated by the student activities director and crew (ext. 3748). The calendar provides a comprehensive list of campus events and is a vital tool for event organizers. To view the calendar, click the link near the top of the inside page where the day’s events are displayed.

Publicizing your campus event

Attracting large crowds to events on our suburban/rural campus can be a challenge, especially if the event doesn’t feature a person who is broadly known. Here are a few suggestions that can help your event attract more people from both on campus and off:

*Get started early. Ideally your event details should be firm and ready to publicize on the campus events calendar and via other resources at least three weeks in advance.

*Remember that campus email lists (all-l, student-l, employee-l) are not available for advertising campus events.

*Consider using blogs and other digital media, such as Facebook and Twitter, as ways for you to connect with people you may not be able to reach via traditional print and broadcast media. Digital word-of-mouth can generate interaction and interest in a particular topic or speaker.

*Engage in traditional word-of-mouth by talking about your event as much as possible and by recruiting others to do the same.    

*Perhaps most important, target your audience by getting information to academic departments, affinity groups, and other organizations who have members with a potentially strong interest in the subject matter. Although it’s helpful to get a notice or story in a publication such as the Asheville Citizen-Times, it’s often even more effective to build your own contact list of like-minded individuals.

Feel free to call John Bowers at ext. 7004 or Ben Anderson at ext. 3758 if you have questions or have specific issues to discuss.
 
All-l
Students and employees are subscribed to the All-l email list at the beginning of each academic year. All-l is a moderated list designated for Public Safety alerts, health alerts, emergency messages, and presidential messages. During crisis situations, All-l is the most expedient and effective method of getting news to the campus community.

Emergency Text Alert System
Registering with this system allows you to receive a text (sms) notification to your cell phone in the event of a serious campus emergency. The system will be tested twice per year, but will not be used for any other announcements. Register your mobile device.

Crisis Communications, Campus Communication Protocol, and the Emergency Response Plan Policy
These plans and policies have been established to set procedures for external and internal communication during crisis situations and at critical times when communication with the Warren Wilson College community is necessary.
