How to submit an announcement

All announcements must be submitted through this online form. Announcements can be news stories, notices about future events, and updates and important information from campus offices, club or organizations. All announcements must be submitted at least three business days prior to the publishing date. This allows time for the announcement to be reviewed, approved or rejected (see below for issues regarding rejections), and to create the newsletter.


  • For a Monday newsletter, all announcements must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on the Tuesday prior
  • For a Thursday newsletter, all announcements must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on the Sunday prior

Linfield Ahead is not meant for personal announcements and solicitations. Content that is not meant to inform or engage the student body, faculty and/or staff should not be submitted to Linfield Ahead. These announcements will be flagged and the author will be contacted regarding why the message was declined. Events that violate Linfield policies will also be rejected and the author will be contacted and informed of the decision as to why the message was declined.

Some announcements are only meant for specific audiences. The form and newsletter allows for announcements to be sent to various audiences (example: McMinnville students or faculty). Select the appropriate audience(s) when completing the form. Select all audiences for announcements that are meant for the entire Linfield community.

How to submit an event for the calendar of events

Submit an event (and room request) via 25Live. Select the date, time, and location for the event. Be sure your event description does not include abbreviations or jargon that would be unfamiliar to those outside your club/group. Under resources, be sure to add the Linfield Ahead calendar. Once approved, the event will appear in the calendar of events. Up to 20 events can appear in each issue of Linfield Ahead.
