Effective advertising should be part of the initial planning for any public activity your group sponsors. The nature of the event or activity will suggest an audience and you should consider how best to reach that audience and interest them in what you're planning. Publicity should begin about two weeks before the event date but only after your event has been submitted and approved on Bengal Connect.
There are various media available to students at Buffalo State: The Record online newspaper, WBNY radio, BSC-TV, the USG Media Sign in the Plaza, not to mention the social media platforms your group may use. Once your event is approved on Bengal Connect it will automatically appear on the Bengal Connect events calendar and be accessible through the Corq mobile app. You can also submit your event to the Buffalo State website so that it appears on the calendar there.
