Web Service: Campus Announcement
This service is available to any official Stetson University entity.
What is a campus announcement?
A campus announcement is an internal notice informing others within the campus community of something. Stetson University specifically defines its campus announcements as notices of all non-event items. For example, both "Breast Cancer Awareness Week" and "Hatter Pride Day" would be considered campus announcements, whereas either "Breast Cancer Fundraiser" or "Hatter Pep Rally" would be considered events. The distinction is important, because all Stetson University events run on a different promotional track than announcements. See the Calendar of Events section for more information about events.

What We Offer
Web Services provides an online campus announcements system for the Stetson University community, nicknamed "Announce!" It is a collection of campus announcements submitted by the Stetson University community for the Stetson University community. It's intended to take the institution out of the "mediator" role and to just let the community communicate to itself what is going on. The announcement system is only available on campus. Any member of the community that is off campus may log in using their campus username and password. From there, you may add and edit your announcements as needed.
