Campus communication, spring 2017
Milligan Today (today.milligan.edu) is your one-stop shop for everything going on at Milligan. Includes breaking news, food menus, lost & found, email, self-service, and much more. Find quick links and post categories in the right-hand sidebar. Email announcement requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.

In an effort to reduce campus email, weekly or biweekly emails will come from Student Development (includes SFP, CAB events, diversity, etc.), Academics (includes course promos, etc.), Career Services, or Advancement. However, if you wish to contact campus, but your message does not fall into these categories, you may send to the appropriate student body email list, depending on your intended audience:
- All Undergrad Students (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- All GPS Students (email@example.com)
- All ECS Students (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- All Students (email@example.com)
To email faculty and staff, send to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also request the vice president of your area to send your email to campus.
The PR Office will approve one email to campus per event.
Some departments and organizations have their own social media pages. To create one, please consult with the PR office before doing so.
Promoting to the public
Start with Milligan’s PR Office (email@example.com or 461.8764)
All news releases, announcements to the community, posters, media interviews, etc., must be approved and coordinated by the PR office. The PR office has an extensive list of media contacts, and we frequently email news releases promoting Milligan’s events, people, and accomplishments to regional media outlets. We are happy to help you develop and execute a promotional plan for your announcement or event. Please start no later than three weeks prior to the event.
As a reminder, if you are contacted by the media, please contact the PR office first before responding.
Lost & Found: Milligan’s official Lost and Found is located in the Registrar’s office (Sue Skidmore) in Derthick Hall. Contact SHSkidmore@milligan.edu to have your lost item posted on the Lost & Found page.
Emergency alerts about crisis situations, including weather-related changes, will be sent as text messages and emails. All Milligan students, faculty, and staff can register for RAVE emergency alerts here.
Have questions? We’re always willing to help. Don’t hesitate to contact the college’s PR Office at 461.8764 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
