Advertise a Campus Event

Events Calendar

25Live is a web-based event publishing, scheduling and calendar program used at West Chester University.

The University's Campus Calendar is compiled from submissions in 25Live. The Featured Events Calendar and events appearing on the WCU homepage, are events Open to the Public. Ensure that you have checked the "Open to the Public" box and have properly filled out the Event Details (for example, event description and ticket cost) when submitting an event in 25Live. Email publicrel@wcupa.edu with questions.

25Live can be accessed by anyone with an "@wcupa.edu" email address. View more information about WCU's 25Live and/or attend a 25Live training session.

WCU Homepage

The West Chester University homepage displays three sections which advertise campus events: Campus Announcements, Events, and the homepage slideshow.

  • Homepage Slideshow - The purpose of the WCU slideshow is to showcase the WCU campus, students, faculty, and staff. It can be considered a vehicle for the promotion of the university to prospective students and parents. The slideshow represents the diverse academic community that is WCU. The slideshow is not intended to advertise campus events, however certain campus events (i.e. Graduate Studies Open Houses) are advertised on the slideshow. Questions? contact Kim Slattery.
  • Homepage Events - These events are major university events that are open to the public. Please see above section "Events Calendar" for more info.

Social Media

To have your event posted or tweeted about on WCU's Main Social Networks or if you have pictures from an event that you would like to share, contact Melissa Rudolph.

Residence Life staff will assume responsibility for posting approved flyers in appropriate locations throughout the residence halls.
  • Academic/Administrative Buildings. Approval for posting is obtained through the building administrator's office for each respective building. Posting in buildings is only permitted on designated bulletin board space. Advertisements posted on walls, doors, etc. are immediately removed by the Custodial Services Department.

Student Publications and Marketing

Press and Media Coverage

For information on Press and Media Coverage please head over to the Media Relations page for more information.

Outdoor Banners

Banners over Church St. at the corner of University Ave. need to be approved by the West Chester Borough Council since this is not University property. An application (available from the director of student leadership and involvement in 238 Sykes Union) must be filed 30 days in advance.

Once the approval is granted, a copy of the approved permit, which includes a sketch of the design, must be submitted to the director of student leadership and involvement so arrangements with the University's maintenance department can be made to hang the banner.

Graphics and Printing Services

West Chester University's Graphics and Printing Department offers graphic design, consultation, copying, and printing services.
