Friday Update Form

Guidelines for Friday Update Submissions


  1. Only SMU departments that fall under the Division of Student Affairs or chartered student organizations may submit. 
  2. Deadline for submission is every Wednesday by 5:00 PM. The update is sent on Friday mornings during the Fall & Spring terms.
  3. The announcement must be of interest to the entire SMU community.
  4. Only one announcement per event will be allowed each semester, regardless of whether it is a recurring meeting.
  5. Events which may take place off-campus should indicate an on-campus location (e.g. steps of Hughes-Trigg, the Flagpole) for participants to gather.
  6. All postings must include a local contact number. 
  7. The individual, organization or department requesting the posting of an announcement is responsible for the accuracy and timeliness of the information submitted.
  8. The fields marked with a * are required.  
  9. Announcements should be brief (100 characters or fewer, please) and contain only essential information. We reserve the right to edit long postings.
  10. The Friday Update is a notice of events for the upcoming 7 Days (Friday-Thursday).  Events submitted in advance will be included in the update sent out the week of the event, with Friday events being sent out the same day as the event.

If you have any questions or comments about these guidelines, please email Norma Munoz.
