Preview of New University Calendar

Marketing and Communications invites you to preview and submit events to the new university events calendar at https://calendar.lr.edu.

The new university calendar is part of the website redesign project and presents a more engaging view of events at Lenoir-Rhyne (all three LR campus locations) and will replace the current calendar on the LR website. As part of the calendar launch, Marketing and Communications is scheduling a couple upcoming “tech talks” on Feb. 18-19 on how to use the calendar as well as how to market and promote LR events. A video recording of the session will be made available for those unable to attend.

Localist Selected as New Campus Calendar

We are pleased to announce that Localist has been selected as LR’s new campus calendar. During December and January, Marketing and Communications will work to populate the calendar with content and switch over the calendar on the current website to Localist. As part of the redesign project, Localist will be integrated into the new website.

Sometime in January 2021, we will begin promoting the calendar within the university community. We will schedule a couple “tech talks” and walk event organizers through how to add events to the calendar. However, no training is needed to submit events to the calendar since it offers a simple, easy to use event submission form.

Rethinking the University Campus Calendar

A robust and publicly accessible campus calendar builds community around events while publicizing the hundreds of events that are scheduled on campus each academic year—lectures, presentations, performances, music, theater, films, art showings, athletic games, among many other event types.

As detailed in our web redesign RFP, the current LR campus calendar does not meet the needs of the university. In this post, we explore some of the desired features and functionality we are looking to implement in the redesigned campus calendar.
