Campus Announcements

  • How to Use PDQ@RWU As Your Own Resource

    Do you have an event on campus that you want people to know about? Or have an announcement to share with the RWU campus community?

    As a part of the Roger Williams community, PDQ@RWU is your resource to post university events and announcements that have broad appeal to the primary audiences on campus – students, faculty and staff. Events and announcements on PDQ@RWU are user generated – which means it’s up to you to add your event to the calendar or submit an announcement.

    Events must be open to attendance by anyone in the RWU community, and in some cases, the greater public. A campus announcement must be informational in nature and intended for the campus community.

    Not all events and announcements, however, will qualify for publication. For example, because club meetings represent a small audience on campus, those are not published to the University Events calendar; and solicitations via campus announcements are not accepted.

    So how do you know if you should submit an event or a campus announcement?

    Whether it’s a pep rally, art show or lecture hosted by an academic department, if it takes place on campus at a scheduled time and date, then it’s an event. Submit an event listing here to ensure that your event will appear on the University Events calendar and in the appropriate edition of the PDQ Pulse. (For more on the PDQ Pulse, read here.)

    A campus announcement is a vehicle to send messages to the RWU community. It’s a way to inform students about a Fulbright Fellowship opportunity or an on-campus internship or work-study position. To update the campus community when a facility’s regularly scheduled hours of operation will change, or communicate the deadline for submitting study abroad applications. Campus announcements can be submitted here for inclusion on both the Campus Announcements page of PDQ@RWU and for one-time publication in the PDQ Pulse.

    Now that you know, submit your events and announcements today! For more on the policies and guidelines, read here.

  • Give Back with the Annual Turkey Basket Contest on Nov. 16

    With the holidays approaching, the Feinstein Center would like to encourage you to participate in the annual Turkey Basket Contest. Over the past 12 years, the RWU community has donated hundreds of baskets to the Bristol/Warren communities.  These baskets have provided complete holiday meals and lifted sprits during the holiday season. Each year, departments, student clubs and organizations, and groups of faculty, staff and students submit baskets that contain complete thanksgiving meals (including gift cards for the turkey, non-perishables) and other fun items such as crayons and coloring books, children’s books, and holiday tableware. Some of the baskets have included a holiday breakfast or have been large enough to fill a family’s pantry for a month! This year RWU is joining the East Bay Food Pantry to ensure that every family who needs a turkey basket gets one. The pantry currently provides food and other basic needs to over 5,000 individuals in the Bristol/Warren community. If you would like to contribute a basket to the Annual Turkey Basket Contest, please RSVP to the Feinstein Center by November 14th at Baskets are due on Wednesday, November 16th at 3:30 p.m. in the GHH Atrium.
