The Campus Life Weekly is a weekly publication produced and distributed by the Office of Academic and Student Affairs.  It was launched in the Fall of 2010 to serve as a vehicle to aid students in advertising and learning about events and activities that were open to the entire student population -- thus encouraging interdisciplinary interaction. 

  • Submissions to the Campus Life Weekly must pertain directly to the entire student body of UM
  • Only events that are open to the entire student community, not just those in a particular school, will be printed
  • Space is limited so the event description is limited to 300 characters
  • The grammar and accuracy of the submission is the responsibility of the individual submitting the entry
  • As a result of the high volume of submissions, some entries will only run the week of the advertised event
  • Newsletters are published weekly on Thursday evenings during the Fall & Spring semesters
  • All entries must be submitted by 5:00 pm the Tuesday prior to the publication date
