Adding Events through events.mica.edu

events.mica.edu is a dynamic online destination where the variety of on campus events can be easily promoted by the members of our MICA community. Every event listing is geocoded on google maps for easy directions, there is connectivity with Facebook for cross promotion, and users can add events to their own personal calendar complete with reminders before the event.

Going forward we are creating our weekly FYI Enewsletter based on the events on events.mica.edu.

For staff and faculty at MICA, events.mica.edu is an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of any event your department organizes on campus.

As of 12/11/15

We want to let everyone on campus know that if you have an event or exhibition coming up, events.mica.edu can help get the message out to everyone campus-wide. 

FYI is MICA's event promotion portal. Anyone with a mica.edu email address is able to add an event, on or off campus, to share with the MICA community and public.

We have a renewed commitment to making this feature a more robust communication tool for our campus and in doing so, we've changed the rules for submissions in the hopes that the process will be easier for all. We still need you to plan a bit ahead so that we can post everything in a timely fashion.
Please submit all events by Wednesday for inclusion in the Friday's newsletter. For example, if you would like for an event to be in the Friday, Nov. 13th newsletter, Communications would need it by Wednesday, Nov. 11th. Once your event is submitted, it may take up to two days to be approved before it is live on FYI.

With the help of FYI, you'll extend your reach of getting people to find out about your event/exhibition. In addition to FYI, we highly suggest submitting your event to Culture Fly, a calendar that is published by the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance and has a very broad reach.  To post your events on Culture Fly, go to culturefly.org.

In addition to your event being listed on the FYI website and weekly newsletter, it also will be included on the FYI app (available on iOS only).
For the smoothest and fastest way to get your event on FYI, the best place to start is the Adding Events through events.mica.edu page. Here, you’ll learn what steps you need to take to get it on the site and in the newsletter. 

Reserve your Room...then Promote on FYI

After you have completed the process for reserving a room on campus for your event (through the MyMICA's R25 Calendar Reservation page) and received confirmation from Office of Events, events.mica.edu should be your next stop.

Logging in to FYI

When you come to the landing page for the first time there is no need to "join"...just hit login and use your official MICA username and password (no need for the @mica.edu when you put in a username).

Your Personal Information and Calendar

Once you're logged in you'll see a "dashboard" of personal options below the main site navigation. This is where you can do things like manage your profile, add friends, and once you've said you are "going to events" you will see a personal events calendar here. Any event that you say you are going to will also generate a reminder email the day before the event.

Promoting an Event

If you are responsible for an event and want to promote it online, you (or a designated staff person if your department funnels info through an administrative assistant) are responsible for adding it to events.mica.edu. (For our website CMS users: this system takes the place of adding "news" about events on our website).

If you want to promote an events for your department, return to the landing page of events.mica.edu and click the event submission button or go straight to http://events.mica.edu/event/create

This form will ask you for key information like the title, description, and location of the event. You can also add a related photo and the event type (lecture, exhibit, workshop) and sponsoring department. It really does only take about a minute.

Once you submit the event, it will go into a pending queue for approval before publication to the live site.

Assuring your event will be in FYI: This Week at MICA email

Since this calendar will be the basis for generating our weekly events FYI Enewsletter any event you would like featured in the Friday newsletter needs to be added to events.mica.edu by end of day Wednesday of that week. FYI Enewsletter will feature the following week's events.
