Consolidated campus calendar going live Friday
BSC has a new online campus-wide event calendar! The system will consolidate all campus events, including class schedules and athletics events, into one location; users can also filter events by date and category and export events to their personal calendars or share them on social media. It also allows for online space reservations and the opportunity to check what spaces might be available for your class, meeting, or event. The new system will have a soft launch this Friday at http://events.bsc.edu. Look for an announcement about training on the new system early in the semester and tutorials will be posted online.
