Arcadia Unveils What’s New with University News
Arcadia’s news has a new home.
Earlier this summer, all Arcadia-centric news, event recaps, award recognitions, Provost’s Plaudits, and student highlights started being housed at arcadia.edu/news.
At the news landing page, you’ll find a mosaic curated from the most popular stories; recent news, with options to search by tag, category, date, and news type; and a feed of media offerings, like a video detailing what’s new for Preview 2016 or the new Knight Vision photos of the week.
The new arcadia.edu/news allows for a variety of news types, from pieces that highlight faculty appearances in the media or publications to full-fledged multimedia storytelling, like this digital version of the Spring/Summer 2015 Arcadia magazine cover story on two recent alumni starting a school in the Dominican Republic.
The Bulletin email, now “Arcadia News,” will continue to hit inboxes weekly. The full news landing page is now easily accessible via a new icon in the MyArcadia dashboard (alongside email, blackboard, self-service, the rolodex, the library, and the events calendar) and a link on the top right of every page, near the search bar.
Get the news delivered right to your MyArcadia homepage by adding the Arcadia News widget, which supplies a continuous feed of top news headlines. To add, click on the red Add Widget tab in the lower left corner of your browser, then click on the Arcadia News icon. (To display all headlines, rather than just top news, click the pen-shaped “edit” icon in the widget, then delete the “homepage” tag. Or, enter other tags to create your own personalized newsfeed.)
What About Events?
While certain upcoming events will be publicized as news articles, the most comprehensive event listings and information can be found in the events calendar at arcadia.edu/events.
There are two ways to publish events:
- Use the Event Calendar Listing Request Form to submit your event for listing.
- Become a Calendar Editor. You’ll have the ability to create and manage your own events on our website. Contact Sue Gettlin for more information. (For faculty and staff.)
To submit a story tip or news submission, use firstname.lastname@example.org, which also is located at the bottom of arcadia.edu/news and in MyArcadia.
Feedback on arcadia.edu/news can be voiced through the website’s feedback link at the top of every page, and questions regarding news tips, published stories, and general newsflow can be sent to Chris Sarachilli ’14 at email@example.com.
