Our new student organization management system, CollegiateLink, allows groups to create a Facebook‐type webpage where mission and goals, pictures, documents, and rosters can be uploaded, and it provides a mechanism to recruit new members. Further, CollegiateLink has a bulletin board and events calendar that provides a wonderful opportunity to promote activities, meetings, fundraisers, and service projects.

Drexel InfoNET (LCD Screens)
To place an advertisement on the Drexel InfoNET, create a JPEG at a resolution of 72 dpi. The image should be exactly 1360 pixels wide by 564 pixels high. Submit your ad using the form on the InfoNET website. Only include absolutely necessary information on your image. Students will be viewing these ads for 3 - 4 seconds from up to 15 feet away - use text sparingly and when you do, make sure it’s large.
Drexel Daily Digest
The Drexel Digest was replaced by the new University Events Calendar on September 19, 2011. No further editions of the Drexel Digest will be published. To post events, visit the University Events Calendar website and the DrexelNow website.
DrexelNow and the University Events Calendar
The new University Events Calendar is now online at www.drexel.edu/events. This new comprehensive calendar will make sharing and promoting events at Drexel easier than ever before. Furthermore, DrexelNow serves as a dynamic new resource for campus news, announcements, social media and more. It can be found at www.drexel.edu/now. DrexelNow is home to news and features about our incredible students, renowned faculty, groundbreaking research, and athletics, arts and culture events. In short, DrexelNow delivers a daily snapshot of life at this great University. The site also features customized content for students, faculty and professional staff and parents, including important announcements from departments across the University. That content will also be delivered to each of those groups through a suite of new email newsletters. University Communications will also publish a quarterly print edition of DrexelNow, called the Drexel Quarterly, which will replace Drexelink. To submit story ideas, suggestions and comments, contact the DrexelNow staff at email@example.com.
