  • If you’re an SA-funded organization, or a Greek organization, you should already have a page.
  • If you’re a college department, you can use the SUNY Oneonta Campus Connection page (email bill harcleroad for access)
  • If you need to post on behalf of an organization that doesn’t fit the above-categories, please email bill harcleroad to request access to a Campus Connection page designed for short-term usage.

There are several ways to do this but the one that will work for everyone is to click the drop down arrow by your name (upper right hand corner) and click "Involvement."

Other Features of Campus Connection:

  • Fundraising Forms – If your organization is holding a fundraiser (any event where you will be collecting money), you need to fill out a form with the college. Fortunately, this form is now built in to campus connection. If you specify that your event is a fundraiser, Campus Connection will ask you several follow-up questions about the fundraiser specifically.
  • LEAD Credit – The LEAD program is a comprehensive leadership program at Oneonta designed to provide students with extra-curricular educational leadership programs to prepare them for life after college. If your event is educational in any way, it may qualify for LEAD credit! Look through the LEAD Leadership Outcomes to see if any relate to your event. If so, apply for LEAD credit and it may attract additional students to your event! To qualify, you must have a faculty or staff member assisting you in planning the educational portion of the event.
  • Copyrighted Material - If you are showing a movie or TV show you must state that you have procured the public performance rights or have a faculty member who is making it an educational event.
