Adding items to the calendars doesn’t have to be complicated, but here are some suggestions to keep things in line with our University Style Guide.
Spell out months. The only exception is when space is needed.
Don’t put the time and date of the event into the event description. They are already part of the event listing. Including them twice makes your description harder to read and makes errors more likely.
Many users will find out about your event via your calendar listing. Make sure you describe the event and why people would want to go.
There’s no need to put IUP in the event title.
If you choose to use headings in your event description, the highest level you should use is Heading 4. Anything higher will cause an accessibility issue.
If you have an ongoing event, be sure to mark the opening and closing days to say as such:
For the dates in between the opening and closing of the event, list them as usual:
