Stay informed at Stetson

FOCUS communications questionWelcome, Hatters, to the first day of classes! It’s a great time to be a Hatter, and a busy time, too. With so much Stetson news and so many events, how can you ever stay informed about everything? In the photo, FOCUS leader Shannon Shontz-Phillips gives directions to the family of a new student last weekend. Here are tips for fast, easy ways to stay all-informed, all the time, about Hatter life:


If you’re reading this, you are already on Stetson Today, our campus-wide information portal. Stetson Today is a unified information source for the latest Hatter news, stories, calendar of events, campus announcements, and great photos and video.


New this semester – in fact, starting today – you will receive a daily digest of Announcements in your Stetson email. You may opt-out if you wish, but we recommend that you keep this valuable service. You never know what’s going to show up in Announcements. They address all things Stetson University.


Find out what events are coming up by visiting our university calendar, which is displayed on Stetson Today. We encourage you to add your university event to the calendar, to help all Hatters know what’s happening, when and where.


Your @stetson.edu email is your official Stetson University email communication channel. In addition to receiving your daily digest of Announcements here, you’ll also hear from professors, peers, RAs, administrators, and friends. Get in the habit of checking your Stetson email frequently.


Stetson has university-wide social media sites that look at the big picture. Many departments, athletics teams, clubs and organizations also have social media platforms.


Have resources at your fingertips from anywhere when you download the Stetson mobile app. It features news and stories from Stetson Today, events from the calendar, campus directories, maps and more.


In-depth stories and alumni news are just two of the features of our award-winning Stetson Magazine. Read it in print, or online on the Stetson Public Relations website. As an added bonus, you gain online access to VISUAL, a special publication sent to prospective Stetson students.


Look up, down, around … and in your Stetson post office box. All kinds of campus activities are advertised via these traditional methods, too.

So, avoid that dreaded “I didn’t know about it …” post-happening letdown. Use these tips for staying informed, and you’ll always be on top of Hatter news.
