Announcements and Promotion

The Office of Communications oversees the College Event Calendar and the Daily Mammoth, and we can work with you to identify the best vehicles to get your message out – on campus and beyond.

The Daily Mammoth

The Daily Mammoth is an email digest sent every weekday morning, enabling all students, faculty, and staff to share announcements and other information with everyone on campus.

  • The Daily Mammoth email digest is sent to everyone on campus Monday through Friday at 8 a.m.
  • Announcements are managed at the Daily Mammoth on My Amherst, where you can view all announcements, submit an announcement, and edit or delete your announcements.
  • Please note that announcements must pertain to the Amherst College community and that each announcement can only run on three days per semester.
  • See our Policy for Daily Mammoth Announcements.

The College Calendar

The College Calendar serves as publicity for all College events.

There are two ways to submit an event:

  1. College Calendar Submission Form: Your event will go into the queue for review by the Office of Communications. We recommend that you submit your event at least a week in advance. 
  2. Department Website Calendar: Create a new event on your department calendar and check the box to “Include this event on the main College calendar.” Events submitted via department calendars appear immediately on the College calendar.

Email Newsletters

Collaborating with Advancement, we publish the e-News, a biweekly email sent to families, alumni, and the campus community.
